Unit #101 is one of 5 vacation rentals in the 8 unit St. Moritz Condominiums. Unit 102 is next door. These condos are nestled in the European style alpine NM Taos Ski Valley at 9,200 ft. Once you park your car, it is just a 10 minute walk and/or ski beside the Rio Hondo River to purchase your lift ticket, catch the main base lifts, rent the latest ski and snowboard equipment, purchase those new warm mittens, or sit beside a cozy fire for a mulled cider, snacks and a great meal.

The historic Village of Taos, recently rated by Fodor’s Travel as one of the Top 10 “Best Solo Escapes This Winter,” and by Yahoo as one of their Top Five “Best Destinations for Christmas,” is a scenic 20 minute drive. The surrounding area offers the visitor many interesting historical and scenic sites as well as many cultural and sporting opportunities.

Down comforters and a variety of pillows will keep your nights restful.

The St. Moritz complex was completed May of 2011 and is one of the newest in the valley. The warm NM sun floods the condo throughout the day. Sledding, snow shoeing and snowmobiling are nearby.

A one-touch gas fireplace keeps the nights cozy and inviting. Elegant stone work adorns the fireplace and bar. Travertine tile on the floors give a touch of class yet are easy to keep looking nice and are indestructible. Carpet in the bedrooms will help keep your toes toasty. Electric baseboards quietly heat the unit, maintaining each room at a constant, even temperature. The bathroom baseboard heating unit is separately controlled.

A 46' HD TV with satellite and Blue Ray DVD will keep you entertained. While free high speed wi-fi internet will keep you connected to the outside world.

The kitchen has granite counters, stainless steel appliances and is fully equipped for your cooking and baking needs. Outside, there is a new gas grill for your enjoyment. You will find a washer and dryer with all needed laundering and cleaning supplies in the unit’s laundry room.

On the same level and just around the corner you will find your own lockable equipment storage closet to secure your skis, poles and snowboards.

Sorry, no hot tub.

About Kelly Grossetete

I am an outdoor enthusiast. I love skiing, hiking, mountain and road biking. I am a commercial pilot by profession.

Kelly Grossetete purchased this condo in 2011

Why Kelly Grossetete chose Taos Ski Valley

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Very Nice Condominium

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our five day stay in unit 101 of the St. Moritz. The condo is very clean and in excellent condition. My only critique would be the price. At the end of our stay I concluded that the daily rate was probably higher than I would pay for another visit. We visited during the last week of March and the entire ski area was largely empty so plenty of supply available. Otherwise, fine units and no complaints.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our stay with at St. Moritz. The condo was immaculate and having the washer / dryer was a extremely helpful while traveling with an infant. The place was spacious and included everything we needed along with quite a few extras including snacks, epsom salts for the bath, and laundry detergent. All of which came in handy! Kelly was fantastic and couldn't speak more highly about this place and our visit.

Great clean place

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Very, very clean, close to the slopes. Absolutely the best stocked VRBO we have ever stayed in. If you have little ones in ski school, it is on the opposite side of the base of the mountain. My advice would be to drive and park in front of the children center. Easier getting back after a long day on the slopes for the little kids. The trail is very close walking distance from the condo and very easy for adults and even older kids. Our 6 and 4 year old could do it early in the day, just very tired by the end. 5 stars, would definitely stay again.

A great escape into the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful property located near Pioneer

  • 5 of 5

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!

Best place in Taos Ski Valley

  • 5 of 5

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!
