As of May 30, 2019. the land Northside leases to operate our recreation area has been sold to Taos Land and Cattle Company I, LLC. We do not know the intent of the new owner with regards to keeping the property open for managed public access in the future. However, Northside will remain open until September 30, 2019 when our lease is up.


Robert F. Corroon Jr., owner of Taos Land and Cattle Company, who has been visiting and skiing in the Village of Taos Ski Valley since the late1970’s is a conservation oriented buyer with no immediate plans for the future of the property.


Thank you for your help and support for nearly 15 years!


We are open...partially. The only trails open are Gold Camp, Sawmill, Bull of the Woods Rd. and Bull of the Woods Trail.


Thanks to Big Al clearing BOTW Rd. and BOTW Trail for his horseback tours, you can ride to the top of BOTW Mtn. With more shoveling, we hope to get the singletrack open to BOTW Pasture. Keep checking back or follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the latest.


The trailhead kiosk is now open. Those of you with annual permits, check your expiration date. We are offering a $40 seasonal permit which will expire Sept. 30th.


We are thankful for awesome volunteers, annual permit holders, and honest riders who bought a daily permit last season. Northside wouldn't exist if it wasn't for all of you!


Watch for postings and photos on Instagram and Facebook too.





Right now you will find a mixed bag of conditions, from dry to wet and drifts.


If you want to keep out of the snow, hike the lower elevation trails in the ski valley. Forested and north facing slopes will have snow and drifts.


The trailhead kiosk is now open.
