Taos New Mexico is a great place to go ski as well as other things. There are some really great casinos in the area as well as great restaurants. But as with every ski town, the magic happens when you hit the mountain. This has to be one of the most beautiful places to ski in the country. With tons of snow and more runs than you could imagine, it will definitely take more than a day or two to hit them all. If you are in a group, you will definitely want to stay together, otherwise you might end up skiing by yourself for the day. If you have the extra cash in your pocket, look into getting a lodge near the mountain. It will save you time in the morning.
Sante Fe is a great beginner mountain and with all the city has to do, anyone can have a blast here. Take the kids and drop them off at the mountain, then spend the day shopping at many of the authentic shops around town. For those of you hitting the slopes, you have plenty to keep you busy all day. Not all of this mountain is for beginners as it has some really awesome blacks and double black runs. While you're on the mountain you have to stop at the Totemoff Bar/Grill and Lodge for one of their fresh cooked burgers with jalapenos. Warms you up real nice while you take a break from skiing.
This is a relatively small mountain and while the trails are limited, this is the perfect place for a nice little getaway. Having a great time on the mountain and then spending an evening in the small but exciting nightlife of Red River really make this a nice and intimate place to spend a vacation. Great food, reasonably priced lodging and a really fun mountain give this ski destination all the allure that you could ever want.
Angel Fire Resort is a great place to go and it is only 5 hours away. This is a perfect place for beginners and experts alike. This is a beautiful resort and has some really great deals year round. One of the coolest things about Angel Fire is the fact that they offer 'Night Skiing'. You can stay on the mountain and keep on skiing, and take part in other activities that they offer on the mountain after nightfall. This is a great place to take the family and truly one of the best vacations around. I say gear up your family, load up the vehicle and hit the slopes this winter. Angel Fire will not disappoint.
