what to wear taos ski valley

I have it on good insider authority that The Blake at Taos Ski Valley is going to be THE PLACE this winter to ski and be seen.    The brand new lodge hotel is opening in February and now is the time to book it to get in on the action and for incredible savings in rates.  My son Jake is working there, “Taos is on of the most unique places to ski in North America.  Speaking terrain, you can get yourself in as much trouble as you like – cliffs, chutes, hike-to, and great Northern New Mexico “blower powder.  But there are plenty of cruiser runs for intermediates, plus the storied Ernie Blake Ski School for beginners as well as advanced skiers.”   And now with the opening of The Blake, the accommodations match the setting for a top notch,  ski in – ski out experience.  Scroll down to discover Jake’s favorite haunts.

For what to pack for a western ski holiday, we put together a selection of Bogner ski gear – the jacket and pants are a perfectly flattering pairing.  We like the fitted jacket and the flare of the pants to update your schussing style.  These pieces are a chic investment to  wear for years on the slopes.

is the heart of a long-awaited base-area revitalization. From big-mountain adventure steps from the door, to tiny rituals that sear the story of our alpine retreat in the hearts and minds of the guests we welcome year-round, this is more than a place to stay.

The Blake’s influences are woven in the independent, soulful tapestry of Taos. Yet a fabric is still unfolding here—one tied deeply to the wild elements we continue to embrace and preserve for the future.”
