Visitor Reviews of Taos

seth brown from United States writes:

Taos, where skiing is still a sport, not a service. Bring your testosterone. There is no better advanced skiing on the planet, period. The intermediate stuff is pretty darn good too. Small by mega area standards, the variety is matched no where...every run has a different feel. This isn't a place to hang, see, or be seen...Mtn men and women only need apply. For you easterners, think Mad River Glenn/Stowe with real snow..For you Euros, think St Anton in the trees. The bonus is the ambience of northern NM. 1 hr north of Sante Fe...it makes for a great vacation. If you're a decent intermediate, you'll have a great time too. This is the antithesis of Vail and Aspen (attitude).
My memories here run deep...if you're a skier, don't miss this place.
