With the expansion of the base area in the past few years, Taos now has an exceptional array of beginning ski slopes.  The three “zippers” give you a chance to get your “ski legs” under you prior to tackling short, easy runs like Rueggli and Pioneer.

Once you have mastered your “pizza” and “french fries” it is time to move on to Strawberry Hill.  This is a great place to practice your turns, get comfortable with your abilities and learn to control your speed.

Having mastered Strawberry Hill most beginners will then want to try something a bit more adventuresome.  That means it is time to head over to lift 1 and take a long, smooth ride down White Feather or head to the back side and go “around the world” via Honeysuckle, Winkelried and Rubezahl.

Yes, Taos has steep terrain but we also have some pretty good beginner terrain as well.  Treat yourself and your family to the adventure of a lifetime – who knows you may just be inspired to reach the peak.
