Live the dream in Taos Ski Valley

Taos Ski Valley was incorporated as a village in 1996 , New Mexico's 100th municipality. While the last official census put our human population at 56 inhabitants, we share our valley with a much larger population of deer, elk, bear, and bighorn sheep.

At a base elevation of 9,200 feet, the Village is surrounded by green forests and high mountains. Wheeler Peak, the tallest mountain in New Mexico at 13,161 feet,  overlooks the town.  We are home to the world class ski resort, Taos Ski Valley, and our mountains provide great skiing in winter and peaceful hiking in summer.

We are located in the northern part of New Mexico, almost halfway between Albuquerque, New Mexico and Colorado Springs, Colorado. The town of  Taos, the Taos County seat, is 21 miles away.

A century ago, our valley was a bustling miner's camp. Today Taos Ski Valley is home to 40-plus merchants with an inviting range of casual dining, lodging, shopping and outdoor activities. The village's European tradition welcomes you with a sense of belonging in our community.
