I learned to ski at Taos, then spent 17 years skiing and working at Snowbird and Alta, Utah. I've found myself back at Taos Ski Valley with its friendly, multicultural, laid back atmosphere. I love the variety of terrain the ski area has to offer, both for the expert and beginning skier.
The condo is located in the heart of Northern NM where the sights and activities are almost endless: stunning mountains, expansive national forests, rolling sage plains, ancient and contemporary Indian pueblos, early Spanish historical sites, 400 year old Mexican adobe villages and churches, art galleries, museums, performing arts (music, concerts, plays, opera), hiking and biking trails, fishing, numerous hot springs, white water kayaking and rafting, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, bird watching, workshops and classes --- well you get the picture!
Taos Ski Valley and the surrounding area is full of delightful sights and a great variety of activities to keep my mind and body active and healthy.
My family bought this property for its close proximity to the base ski area, its amenities and the spectacular skiing and hiking trails. Once I drive to the condo I never have to use the car again. Yet, in the summer or when muscles need a break from skiing, Taos and the surrounding area offers great opportunities for a wide variety of activities and really unique shopping opportunities.
St Moritz was such a gem in the beautiful town of Taos. My husband and I are road tripping to AZ and decided to take a mini break to go snowboarding and I'm so glad we found this place. Walking distance to the slopes and all the cute restaurants in town, we definitely enjoyed it all. And after eating out for several days, it was nice to cook in our own kitchen for a home cooked meal. Kelly was amazing and accommodating, answering all questions and offering great recommendations. Will definitely be back!
We loved our stay and had a wonderful time. Kelly and her family were very responsive, and wanted to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Taos is a very close knit community. Another property manager that managed other properties in the area stopped and introduced himself and also made himself available to us. Very friendly atmosphere. We rented a one bedroom condo for a family of five, three boys. While it accommodated our family, we could have used a two bedroom condo for our kids - mainly because we are a family with boys.
The amenities were great. The condo is close enough that you could walk to the Village for dinner in the evenings. We ordered Pizza. The Pizza Shop gets busy. So order soon for take out, and get there early for dine in.
The short walk to the slopes was beautiful. You cross a snow covered bridge over a stream and it was fabulous. The boys took the sleds and went sledding down Pioneer in the evenings. The new year's eve show at Taos was fantastic. It was a very memorable and unforgettable trip. I highly recommend it.
If some of the family is still in ski school, no problem, the walk to the ski school is easy. Also, if you choose to drive, there is parking at the ski school for drop off that makes it very easy and convenient. I recommend arriving at the ski school early though because you will encounter the arriving ski traffic going back to the condo. If you get to the ski school early enough, 8:15, you will have no problem.
We will definitely stay again at the St. Moritz. Kudos to Kelly for providing a great experience. Warning - make sure you have a 4 wheel drive or tire chains!
This place over exceed my expectations for what you might get in Taos. Everything is brand new and extremely nice. The bed and bedding could not get any better, especially after a long day on the slopes. The kitchen has everything you need to whip up any type of food you wish. I will make sure that I stay in this same spot when I return next. Kelly that runs the place was great!
Great location and an amazing condo. It was warm, inviting and owners were very generous with all the details. We will definitely be renting this one again!
Amazing property- immaculately clean and well stocked. Everything from coffee filters, herbs for cooking, to lotion and clorox cleaning wipes. It was better stocked than kitchen suites in a luxury hotel- definitely recommend this property and appreciate the extreme attention to detail from the owner! The added items really made it feel like a home.
My twin boys and I were in for a long weekend. The property was immaculate and very convenient to the lifts. It was also a very easy walk to the ski village. Kelly was very accomodating and available to answer any questions. We could not have asked for a more seamless stay. It would definitely be the top choice for our next visit to Taos.
The Taos area is the home of Pueblo Indians, descendants of the early Spanish and Mexican settlers, world famous artists and folks who treasure a life style off the beaten path. Fodor rated Taos as one of the 10 'Best Solo Escapes This Winter'. Taos is the home of the green, 'off the grid' famed Earth Ships, the mineral hot springs at Ojo Caliente, the Rio Grande Gorge bridge and the music, film and wine festivals in at the ski valley and in Taos
