Getting Here

New for the 2015/16 ski season, Taos has partnered with Carpool World to provide you with a fun, cheap, and environmentally friendly way to get to the resort. Log onto carpoolworld.com/taos, create a profile, and find new friends looking to share a ride! You can use this service to find regular rides on your weekends or to arrange a last minute trip when the forecast looks promising. Use this service and fill out two surveys sent throughout the season and you’ll automatically be entered into a raffle during the Pond Skimming Championships on April 3rd, 2016 for a chance to win awesome prizes!

There are lots of ways to get here, but many find it difficult to leave. Distance travelers can choose to fly into Santa Fe and drive 2 hours to Taos Ski Valley; or fly into Albuquerque with a drive time of 3 hours. Many major airlines service each airport. A daily shuttle runs between the airports and the slopes year round. Reservations are required; call our Central Reservations department at 575.776.2291 x2384, or 800.776.1111 or email us at shuttle@skitaos.com for more information.
