Skiing "The Change" at Taos Ski Valley—Opening Day 2018/2019

Every year, the first day of ski season is one of the most exciting days for a lot of mountain folks. This year was no different, albeit a great deal whiter than Opening Day last year given that we had a solid snow base for first chair at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Add to that the sheer joy of riding up Taos Ski Valley's brand-new, high-speed quad that cut the time from base to top nearly in half and we can happily report that the only blues we saw on Opening Day 2018/2019 were the skies and intermediate runs!
