Taos Ski Valley has been blessed with a great winter. It will be interesting to see how the Spring thaw goes. There's no way to predict now when the trails will be ready to ride, but it looks like some trail shoveling will have to happen in order to open.


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.





There's plenty of snow for snowshoeing!


We have had so much snow, all the trail signage is buried. If you want to hike Northside, please buy your permit at Taos Sports or download a permit and drop in the trailhead kiosk. Please stay on either of the two roads.


The trailhead kiosk is not open in the winter, so please buy your permit in the village at Taos Sports. Our Snowshoeing page has more info.


Watch for postings and photos on Instagram and Facebook too.
