New Mexico Public Health Emergency Order has delayed Taos’ opening day.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and the New Mexico Department of Health have extended the Public Health Emergency Order through November 30, 2020. All state residents must stay at home for all but essential travel and service, preventing ski areas from opening in November as planned.

Starting today, Monday, November 16, 2020, all non-essential businesses must remain closed until November 30. “Essential” businesses are limited to 25% capacity or 75 customers, whichever is fewer. All businesses must close by 10 pm.

This latest shutdown will delay the start of the ski season for those planning on a November opening. Taos Ski Valley and Red River Ski Area were both scheduled to open within the next two weeks, and although the current Public Health Order is only for two-weeks, who knows how long it might last.
