Taos Ski Valley will open Kachina Peak to lift-accessed skiing and snowboarding this coming ski season. With a summit of 12,450 feet, the Kachina Peak lift is one of the highest chairlifts in North America and increases the mountain’s lift-serviced terrain by 50 percent. The lift will provide access to a wide range of terrain , from the wide open bowls of Main Street, to the narrow and steep lines of the K Chutes.
Taos Ski Valley’s season pass, has also seen improvement. The popular Millennium Pass (good for 70 days), the unlimited Adult Full Season Pass, and the Family Full Pass, will each include exchange days at Copper Mountain, Durango Mountain Resort, Crested Butte, Arapahoe Basin, Powder Mountain and new this year, Silverton Mountain. Taos Ski Valley will also continue to offer discounted season and day passes to active military, college students, seniors and children.
Taos Ski Valley has also upgraded its snowmaking system with two energy-efficient compressors. The upgrades are expected to allow Taos Ski Valley open Thanksgiving weekend, as well as provide skiing from the top of the mountain as soon as possible.
