Taos Air Will Be on Hiatus During the 2020/21 Winter Season

For months, the Taos Ski Valley Resort has been working toward a COVID safe plan for our air service operation for the upcoming winter season. Guided by their social responsibility commitment and B Corp ethos, they collaborated with stakeholders in our community on both the local and state level and, ultimately, arrived at the reality that the uncertainty of current and future travel restrictions made it impossible to deliver a Taos Air service this year. To that end, and to respect the current public health order, they have made the difficult decision to extend the suspension of Taos Air through the entirety of this winter season. We hope to see them in the air again in the near future.
