Summer Chairlift Rides In Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico

Scenic Chairlift Takes You to New Heights.


Taos Ski Valley's easiest and most relaxing way to escape the heat and enjoy the mountain scenery. Take in the spectacular views, blues skies, and clear mountain air while riding the chairlift. 

Scenic rides take place at Chair 4 by The Bavarian in the Kachina Basin. There are several picnic tables at the top of the lift, offering a great spot to bring your sack lunch. Once at the top, enjoy views of Kachina and Wheeler Peaks. Hike down or catch the lift for the descent. For comfort, bring an extra layer of clothing.
