A nice Autumn snowstorm yesterday brought us a dusting of fresh snow in the mountains. 22° at sunrise this morning, looks like winter is almost here! Pictured here is Wheeler Peak from Sierra de Don Fernando

Some of the best #rockclimbing in -#NewMexico is found right here in the ski valley, but don't take it for #granite 'cause there's also endless opportunities nearby like the #basalt cliffs in the #RioGrandeGorge. 
@mountainskillsguides pioneered many of the local routes and now provides guided opportunities to learn basic skills or utilize your experience on the best rock around. Check out their feed for some amazing pics.

This energizing sport is one of the best ways to experience the mountains, test your skills or push yourself to new heights on a climbing #adventure in #TaosSkiValley!

The local #aspentrees are at their peak right now, you can find one of the best places for amazing #Autumn views at the Kachina Vista Municipal Park - head up Twining Road and take a left onto the Phoenix Switchback, then turn right onto Kachina Road. Dogs are welcome on this one mile #hike (or #bikeride!) across the valley from the #Longhorn and #NorthAmerican ski runs

Looks like there's a cold front coming through tomorrow with a slight chance for snow, Friday could be a good opportunity to see a fresh dusting on the yellow leaves 🍁🍂❄

Our last seasonal #fullmoonhike is this Sunday, October 13th, starting at 7:30pm.

Meet at #WilliamsLake hiker parking and enjoy a casual hike to the lake - 2 miles from the trailhead. There is 1,000 ft.  of elevation gain from the start at 10,200 ft. Bring a flashlight or headlamp, warm jacket, snacks and wear long pants - it's getting cold at night now. The trail is rocky so sturdy hiking shoes are recommended. Have fun under the #NewMexico #moonlight! It's amazingly beautiful and serene hiking through the #forest when the #moon is bright.

One of the first Aspen trees to go full-gold so far this year, there's a hint of autumn in the air but it seems like summer is holding on. Last year the peak colors were this week but this year it's just starting, there's a chance of snow developing for this weekend, could these be signs for a great winter ahead? We sure hope so, stay tuned! By the way trail conditions are perfect to enjoy a hike or bike ride, got to love the #TaosOutdoors!

Thirty years ago in 1989, millions of filmgoers were introduced to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad when it starred as the “circus train” in the blockbuster movie, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Today, Indy’s boyhood home as depicted in the movie is a Bed & Breakfast blocks from where you can board the Cumbres & Toltec and ride over the same route that was used in the movie, traveling by steam locomotive for 64 miles across the Rocky Mountains.  You might not encounter snakes, a rhino or a giraffe, but you will see railroading just as it was depicted in the film – and you’ll pass by a special water tower erected for the movie, which Indiana Jones used to make his escape.

It doesn't get any better than this! Perfect weather, excellent trail conditions, and amazing views of the highest mountain in New Mexico. 74° at #WilliamsLake today. The new trail is pretty rad, look for it just uphill from the Phoenix and Lift 4, it rejoins the old trail a little ways after crossing into the #WheelerPeak #wilderness.

Have you ever enjoyed a #narrowguauge ride through the #mountains? Experience beauty of the northern #NewMexico and southern #Colorado mountains aboard the @cumbrestoltec #scenicrailroad, immersed in history and #westernculture - the #Cumbres&Toltec was originally constructed in 1880 as part of the #RioGrande's narrow gauge San Juan extension to transport #silver ore from #miningdistricts in the southern #SanJuanMountains. However in 1893 the repeal of the Sherman Act had a devistating affect on the silver mining industry, in the decades that followed this section of the railroad was left abandoned until a brief period of prosperity in the 1940's and 50's, then in 1970 Colorado and New Mexico jointly purchased the track from Antonito to Chama and converted it to a tour the next year the C & TS has been operating as a popular attraction since!

The views are incredible as you travel through the heart of the southern San Juans along the #ContinentalDivide.

Summer is quickly approaching and as you gear up for some #mountainadventures we have some info about the local trails to help plan your trips, visit our #hiking page at www.taosskivalley.com for more info and recommendations;

There is still a lot of snow in the high country, more than we've seen during June for several years! The #WilliamsLake trail is snowpacked from the wilderness boundary to the lake. This is one of the most popular hikes in our area and is well traveled, though with the trail hidden by the above-average snowpack and not readily apparent there are foot paths that don't follow the actual route. A gps app such as #hikingproject can be useful, and look for the blue paint blazes on trees. The snow is pretty firm but softens during the afternoons, be prepared to posthole and get your feet wet, boot gators and trekking poles are recommended. Keep your eyes open for forest critters and other wildlife, the #chipmunks and #grayjays love to swoop in and say hi at the lake! If you're into #backcountryskiing and #snowboarding the #WheelerPeakWilderness has plenty of snow up high providing opportunities to ride some nice lines this summer, #knowbeforeyougo, and know how to assess conditions including avalanche potential.

The trails in the #ColumbineHondoWilderness are mostly clear of snow, #YerbaCanyon gets our top recommendation this week as its almost completely dry up to treeline and the #aspentrees have their leaves!  #ManzanitaCanyon and the #ItalianosTrail are hiking nicely, the #GavilanCanyonTrail is also in great shape with some snow in the highest reaches.

#BulloftheWoods and #LongCanyon are good to go with a few scattered snow patches to cross. The #WheelerPeak trail is still snowbound, quite deep in some places and provides excellent opportunities for some #highalpine trekking for an experienced #peakbagger. Get an early start and bring plenty of food and water on your #wildernessadventures!

We love our local wildlife, rivers, forests and all the natural beauty that our mahestic mountains sustain. Congrats @skitaos and thanks for all the hard work you're doing!

For the second time in three years, #TaosSkiValley has been awarded the industry’s most coveted award for sustainability: the #GoldenEagle award for environmental excellence chosen by the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA). Taos won the Golden Eagle ‘Innovation in Sustainability’ award for its cutting-edge food dehydrator system, which significantly reduces food waste. Michael Bower, Taos Ski Valley’s director facilities, received the award at the NSAA annual conference in San Diego earlier this month.  During the 2018-2019 winter season, Taos invested in the large-scale food dehydrator, which keeps more than 80 percent of the food waste generated at resort restaurants out of the area landfills, and instead transforms the waste into rich soil amendment. Not only does it reduce the amount of trash produced by the resort, but it also significantly cuts down on carbon dioxide and methane produced by the waste. During the ski season, Taos was able to convert more than 7,000 pounds of food waste into over 700 pounds of soil amendment. “The investment in the food dehydrator was just one of many investments we’re making to help protect our community, our environment and our mountain for generations to come,” said David Norden, CEO of Taos Ski Valley. “We operate with a set of core values that ensures that we respect and, where possible, improve our air, water and land quality. Winning the award is gratifying, and we plan to continue to push the envelope in delivering smart, effective environmental programs.”

From our friends @gearingupbikestaos; After five days of snow, rain and clouds the sun is shining and our mesa trails are starting to dry out again. We're stoked to have an above-average snowpack and enough water in the mountains to keep the streams flowing, and hopefully avert any forest closures like last year (wildfire conditions are rated low across the Carson NF). It's shaping up to be a great week to get some riding in!

Remember when you encounter a muddy section especially on trails like the #RiftValley, #WestRimTrail and #HorsethiefMesaLoop, keep your #drivetrain clean and running smooth by walking around the mud.  Grit, gravel and debris in the wet coliche sticks to everything and can find it's way into the smallest spaces causing inconvenient problems when you pedal, and possibly damage to your bike.

Have fun out there, swing by a shop if you need a tune-up or recommendations on where to ride.  And we just ordered a bunch of socks featuring creative and flashy themes, keep your feet happy and express your artistic style on the trail!

After a few days of stormy weather (much appreciated precipitation bringing much needed H2O) the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day in #TaosNM!

Fly high with @puebloballooncompany, experience the #RioGrande from a perspective you'll never forget. The views are stunning as you dip down towards the #river with the #SangredeCristo mountains across the valley ... a truly remarkable tour.

#ElNino has brought a welcome change this year, after last year's historic drought kept us high and dry.  This year the rivers are flowing strong, the mesas are green and the highest elevations are holding a deep snowpack. Conditions are great all-around #Taos for #whitewaterrafting, #mountainbiking and #hiking.  And if you're into #backcountryskiing and #snowboarding this is quite a season! We just looked at the forecast and the storm we've been watching looks like it's turning into a significant precipitation event, with up to a couple feet of snow possible through the weekend! There should be some good opportunities to hike for some turns, of course #knowbeforeyougo and assess avalanche conditions carefully, we've seen some big snowstorms during May before and this could be one of them.  Be aware that within the ski area boundaries mountain ops crews may be working,  please avoid any areas where you see snowcats or snowmobiles or anywhere there appears to be an active work site.  We want everyone to have fun but more importantly to be safe while enjoying our #publiclands on the #CarsonNationalForest, and remember that respect gains respect.  Happy trails!

#waterislife - it starts here. Flow down through the snowpack, to the ground. Into a creek, to a stream. Through the canyon, to a tributary, into the mighty Rio. Sustain life, bring joy and prosperity. Greet the Ocean with love, rise to the sky, atmosphere flows. Rain. Snow. Fun. This is but one mountain, which we must respect, treat it with gratitude. It does not belong to us, tho our spirits are in it's grasp. The mountain rests and breathes, after the energetic buzz of ski season. The snowpack is deep and the continuous cycle goes on in the early morning light. We love You, Kachina!

The Rio Grande is the heart and soul of northern New Mexico. It's an important corridor for wildlife, and provides recreational opportunities for nature lovers of all kinds! We had a great winter with lots of snow, it's starting to melt and today the Rio is flowing above 1400cfs, afternoon temps are in the upper 70s - perfect conditions for a river adventure! Whether you want swift-flowing #whitewater or a relaxing cruise to enjoy the #scenery you can find it with any of our local rafting outfitters. Visit our website www.taosskivalley.com for info on booking a trip and lodging recommendations.

If you love #mountainbiking and beautiful scenery, #Taos is an energizing place to know! The trails along the #RioGrandeGorge are in great shape for a morning or afternoon ride.  This view can be found along the #HorsethiefMesaLoop trail a little ways down the road from us in #ArroyoHondo. It's an intermediate 12 mile #singletrack loop ride with lots of amazing views of the gorge and the mountains, and an overlook abobe the #JohnDunnBridge. If you need to refuel head up the road into El Prado and grab a slice and cold beverage at #Pizanos @taospizza, a delicious way to cool down after your ride!

We recommend the #MTBProject app to find all the good riding spots in our area, with descriptions and maps including GPS tracks.

What a season it's been! The best snow we've seen for quite a few years, lots of new friendly faces and fun times all around. We hope you all had many great turns and memorable days! The lifts are closed tomorrow and Tuesday, then some will reopen Wednesday through Sunday for an encore to cap off the ski season, and it looks like it could snow, quite a bit if we're lucky we'll be closing out the season with some awesome powder. Hope to see you up here!

Stay tuned for updates about Spring adventures in the #TaosSkiValley area, #whitewaterrafting season has started and much more awaits. The fun doesn't end when the lifts stop turning, it just shifts gears! #taosnm #visittaos #newmexicotrue #rafttaos #biketaos #hikenm #newmexicoadventure #riogrande #riogranderafting #newmexicowhitewater #kayak #paddleboard #sup #taostrue

There's a lot to do besides skiing in Taos, if finding solitude in nature is your thing the many hiking trails on the #CarsonNationalForest provide excellent opportunities. There's nothing like stopping to take in the scene along a babbling mountain stream! This is along the Manzanita Trail about halfway between Arroyo Seco and the Ski Valley. Look for the trailhead on the left just after you pass the Taos East condos.

Historically February is one of the snowiest months of the ski season, when we see thick clouds like this along with warmer temps (its been in the 30s and 40s today) it's a good sign. Last time we checked the forecast it showed up to 17 inches tonight in our mountains!

The other storm spinning above the Pacific looks good too, time to get the powder skis and boards ready 🌫🌨❄ For #taoslodging deals visit #taosskivalley.com
The Arroyo Seco Mercantile is one of the most unique shops you'll find in Taos. We can only begin to describe the diversity of items you'll find, from creative artwork and crafts to tools and household necessities, interesting and attractive gifts, wardrobe apparel you won't find anywhere else ... visiting this shop is an adventure in itself! Mention the Taos Ski Valley Chamber of Commerce for a discount on select items during February. If you're driving up to the Ski Valley the Mercantile is in the middle of Arroyo Seco next to the beautiful old truck (you'll know when you see it). Also you can catch the 341 Green shuttle from the town of Taos.

Beautiful light powder day! The peak is open to hike today, conditions are great. It's breezy on the ridge, a sign the storm coming in a couple days could be a good one ❄

The nature of the mountains is truly impressive, the views are magnificent but that's not all you can experience once you're here. Breathing the pristine air, stopping to listen to a stream flowing down through the forest, seeing a hawk soaring effortlessly across the sky. Along with unlimited opportunities to build your strength and improve your skill sets, these are some of the ways the mountains can enlighten the soul.  Because we understand how important our relationship with the natural world is, our community embraces sustainable practices to reduce energy use, keep our waterways clean, reduce waste by advocating the use of reusable products and containers, recycling everything possible, and continuing our commitment to creating a sustainable future for everyone, every way possible. #Taos has been leading the way regarding sustainable living for several decades, we are super happy to be a part of this community who genuinely cares about our planet!

The mountain on the left is #WheelerPeak, New Mexico's high point at 13,161' above sea level. Time to head down for some #greenchile at the #StrayDogCantina

Many of the ski runs here hold names carried over from Europe by our ski area's founder Ernie Blake, references to people and places of significance from his time working with U.S. military intelligence during World War II. Names like Stauffenberg, Zdarsky and Rubezahl reflect this historical significance. Some other runs have names with more local significance, like Castor and Pollux, named for two bright stars which during Winter can be spotted travelling across the sky high above Taos Ski Valley and Kachina Peak.  These bright stars are part of the constellation Gemini, which can be spotted above the western horizon just before sunrise. If you're in the town of Taos look towards the Rio Grande Gorge before heading up to the mountains to ski and catch a glimpse of these bright, beautiful twin stars welcoming an adventurous day ahead

Lots of people have been asking us when the peak will be open, so we just wanted to say that we don't have that information yet and ask for your patience, the terrain on Kachina is complex and may need a bit more snow, Ski Patrol is working diligently to assess conditions and conduct their control work to get it ready for everybody. As soon as an announcement is made we will post it, until then have fun shredding the mountain, the West Basin is open to Saint Bernard, conditions are great and there are powder stashes to be found!

Mother Nature has been good to us this early season, with over 18" of fresh snow during the first week of December and some of the lower frontside steeps are open including Al's Run.  Thanks #TSVSkiPatrol for all the ski packing you did before this storm!

This afternoon at 3:30 join us to kick off the holiday season in the village plaza by Lift 1 with live music and the Mayor Address with our mayor @christofbrownell followed by the Christmas tree lighting!

Have you hiked #NewMexico's highest summit, #WheelerPeak? During the Winter this challenging intermediate climb is popular with #peakbaggers and #backcountryskiers alike, access is via either the #BulloftheWoods or #WilliamsLake trails. #Snowshoes or climbing skins are recommended to attempt either route, as well as knowing how to assess snowpack conditions. With the proper equipment and experience the views from the top are worth the effort.

While the slopes on the mountains are snowed in (conditions are great for #snowshoeing and #backcountryskiing in some areas), the trails along the #RioPueblo and #RioGrande are perfect for a day hike or #mountainbike ride, and #Autumn colors are still popping down low. #Outdoor #adventure is a daily thing here, there's always cool places to explore no matter what you prefer.

#Bike season never really ends in Taos, it just takes some #powderdays off once in a while! The views from the #trails are pretty awesome especially when #TaosMountain and Vallecito are #snowcapped.

This picture is from our friends @gearingupbikestaos, they're open Monday through Saturday and have great information about the local trails, all the gear you need including maps, and #rentalbikes available daily.

Thirty years ago archaeologists discovered over 500 culturally peeled #ponderosapine trees in the Warm Springs area of the Camino Real Ranger District. These living artifacts have provided important information about ancient land use patterns and traditional plant uses

If Trees Could Talk: #PeeledTrees in the Picuris Mountains, will focus on an innovative ethnographic approach to peeled tree research done by Patricia Corral in the 1990s. Join us and find out what Jicarilla Apache, Hispano and Picuris elders shared about this amazing resource

Ms. Corral, #CarsonNationalForest Assistant Archaeologist will be the featured speaker for the Carson National Forest presentation on Thursday October 11, to be held at the main Carson National Forest office at 208 Cruz Alta Rd in Taos, NM from 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Have you ever been on a #fullmoon hike in the mountains? It's pretty amazing seeing the slopes at night nearly bright as day. Meet tomorrow night September 24th at 8:15pm at the #WilliamsLake hiker parking trailhead if you'd like to join a guided hike to the lake. The weather looks to be good with intermittent clouds, bring your headlamp and dress warm, there's a cold front coming through Tuesday with a chance of snow in the higher elevations Tuesday night!
