Welcome to Beautiful Taos Ski Valley!
Located about 30 minutes from the town of Taos, Taos Ski Valley offers world-class skiing in the winter and a great escape from the heat in the summer. It differs from the adobe culture in the Town of Taos with its European alpine feel. People from around the world come here year round to ski, snowboard, snowmobile, hike, fish, road and mountain-bike, and soak in the fall colors. The Ski Valley is its own little village with restaurants and shops.
We hope you have a wonderful time during your stay here. To ensure that you do, we would like to pass along the following information regarding the Taos Ski Valley and Sierra Del Sol:
OFFICE HOURS – During ski season, the Sierra Del Sol office is open from 8:00 – 5:00 daily . Summer hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 3:00. Upon your arrival, we will have your room key and a map showing the location of your condo at the front desk. Should you arrive after office hours, you will find your key & map in an envelope by the front office door with your last name printed on it.
GAS STATIONS – There aren’t any up here. Be sure to gas up in Taos if you’re running low on fuel. (Conoco, Smiths, Chevron, Shell, etc.).
GROCERIES & LIQUOR – Taos Ski Valley has one small convenience store, BUMPS MARKET. The market stocks some grocery items, basic pharmaceutical supplies, snacks, drinks, beer, wine, liquor and tobacco products. But if you want to stock up for a few days, there are several specialty & big box stores in Taos. Taos Grocery Stores include Cid’s, Smiths, Albertsons
ALTITUDE SICKNESS – Many skiers cannot resist the urge to overdo it the first day or two only to ruin the rest of the week. Stop early when you start to feel fatigue or any prolonged breathlessness. Increase carbohydrate intake (pasta, rice, pancakes) to 70% of total calories. This means reducing fat intake. Avoid Alcohol, Tranquilizers and Sleeping Pills the First Two Nights, and Drink Plenty of Water. (This information courtesy of Mogul Medical website)
