Taos Ski Valley opens with the debut of its high-speed quad chair

Skiers and riders have been lining up since 6:30 AM at Taos Ski Valley this morning! It’s opening day and we’re celebrating the launch of our new high speed quad chairlift with donuts, refreshments and a ribbon cutting ceremony.

With recent snow storms and enhancements to snowmaking, opening conditions are excellent at Taos Ski Valley, which opened today. The snowmaking crew has taken advantage of below freezing temperatures to make a bounty of snow. Additionally, Mother Nature has already provided over 30 inches of snowfall allowing for a nice selection of open terrain.

The mountain also has steep early-season discounts available: today through Dec. 7 — adult lift tickets are nearly 25-percent off.
