The Edelweiss Chalet was part of the Edelweiss Hotel which we owned and operated since 1963! After 34 wonderful and most successful year in Hotel operation we retired and sold the Hotel - however I kept the Edelweiss Chalet. It was part of the hotel for all those years. I have lived in the Ski Valley for over 45 years now and still love it. The location of the house is perfect with access to the ski slopes and the village (short walk). Skiing and mountain sports are a big part of my life. I am very experienced in the ski industry and love what I am doing every time over again.

ILSE MAYER purchased this chalet in 1972

Why ILSE MAYER chose New Mexico

If you are a skier, beginner or ready for serious slopes, this is the perfect place to be. Walk out of the house and put on your skies - you are practically on the slope! Perfect in many other ways as a family vacation or reunion with other families, it all suites nicely.

If you are a hiker, biker, or just lover of the outdoors, cool nature, clean air, forest and stream in front of your door - this is the place for you.

What makes this chalet unique

Breathe the healthy mountain air while you are relaxing or doing what you most want in nature! Touch Nature from your deck, smell the trees, feel the snow!

Refresh and recharge!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! We stayed at the Edelweiss Chalet for springbreak with my family and two other families (we rented the studio apartment and the main house) for a total of 11 people (5 adults and 6 kids/teens). The house with the studio was a great set up for all of us to be together, yet also have our privacy. The best part of the house is its location. We took the beautiful and scenic pathway behind the house that leads directly to the pioneer slope in less than 5 minutes! Couldn't have asked for anything better than to be able to ski in and ski out from the house. Kitchen was fully equiped so we ate all our breakfast and dinners at the house. Ilse, the owner, is a great hostess. She can be reached easily and always responded promptly to any questions or requests we had. All our expectations were met and we would definitely rent the chalet the next time we return to Taos Ski Valley!

Our group stayed for a long weekend on the slopes. Everything with the chalet was great, and the location was outstanding! Ilse was very responsive and helpful. I would recommend the Edelweiss Chalet for any group!

Perfect ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

This Chalet provided a very lovely ski vacation with my family and my in-laws. We were able to have the main floor for us and our children - my in-laws (parents and sister) stayed upstairs where they could have privacy. We all ski and were able to walk over to the ski lodge easily, making it convenient to alternate watching the little children left behind. We cooked and had nice meals together on the great dining bench accompanied with a full window. The decor and quanitness reminded us of our ski trips to Austria. Everything we needed was there and in nice condition. The owner checked in to make sure everything was okay upon arrival. Everything in the listing was accurate.

Owner's Response: Thank you Maya, for the nice words. We are glad you had a 'perfect vacation', 2 families together yet apart enough for privacy. Good that you enjoyed the 'quaintness' and Austrian decor, as well as the great location. It is near the village and so close to the lifts. I am very concernded and hope to please all my guests and hope to offer utmost comfort and convenience. Thank you for bringing all your family, including your in-laws. I am happy if you all were comfortable at the Edelweiss Chalet!!
