A New Mexico ski vacation is ideal for the skier or snowboarder looking for a truly unique experience. A trip to Taos is like going to a whole new world. The town of Taos boasts some incredible Native American history and is a hotbed for native and new-age artists alike, so you can expect a lot of art galleries. Perfect for sightseers and those looking for a slew of off-mountain experiences, Taos also has Native American adobes and Spanish Missionary architecture to explore. Taos ski resort is about a 45 minute drive from the town, but the whole experience is well-worth the travelling. Taos has a nice variety of terrain, but is best suited for advanced and expert skiers, who will especially enjoy skiing off the 12,481-foot Kachina Peak.
