Winter Vacation Fun in Taos Ski Valley
Taos Mountain is a Skier's Paradise
In Winter,Taos Ski Valley comes alive, and The Bavarian Lodge & Restaurant is integral to the season's experience. Taos Mountain is world-renowned for its steeps, with among the best extreme runs anywhere to challenge the experts. Great intermediate terrain is also available and not only beginners, but all levels of skier and boarders can benefit from the exceptional quality of the powder snow, the brilliant sunny skies of the high desert and the highly acclaimed ski school.
Our lodge fits perfectly into the European-style village that is Taos Ski Valley and offers unexpected luxury and gourmet cuisine in an atmosphere of true Bavarian warmth and style. The only ski-in/ski-out accommodations located mid-mountain, the Bavarian sits at an altitude of 10,200 feet, just a few yards from the base of the Kachina quad lift. We are accessible on skis from all parts of the mountain, and there's a 1.3-mile trail leading back to the base village.
The Taos ski school is world renowned, with instruction available for all levels. Even the most experienced and expert skiers choose to join the justifiably famous Ski Weeks. Taos Ski Valley now welcomes snowboarders as well as skiers, so all members of families with kids can now share our extraordinary mountain and the special Taos ambience.
Festivals and events fill the calendar, from the resort's opening around Thanksgiving (earlier during great snow years) through March and often into April. Click on the links below for details on the many activities and celebrations you can join.
