This week, Taos Ski Valley is beginning a cautious, phased re-opening that maximizes the health and safety of guests, staff, and the community. This phased re-opening will allow New Mexicans to get outdoors and exercise, enjoy nature through hiking, biking, and camping, while still maintaining proper distance and hygiene.

The re-opening activities will be deliberately conservative and slower than the government agencies allow for, in order to ensure new health protocols are executed properly.

Re-Opening Plan and Dates (subject to change):

Taos Ski Valley’s phased re-opening plans maximize the health and safety of guests, staff, and the local community while offering visitors a way to rejuvenate in the mountains and nature. The resort deliberately phased activities and services, including dining, so it can ensure new cleaning and physical distancing operations are seamless.
