Taos Ski Valley summer activities includes several new intermediate and advanced lift-served mountain biking trails, as well as new mountain biking private lessons.

Taos Ski Valley’s summer offerings focus on human-powered adventures that have a low impact on the mountain and allow visitors to truly connect with and experience the natural beauty of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

This summer, travelers can look forward to the respite of the cool, clean air of the ski valley and an array of new outdoor activities opening on June 24, with something for everyone:

  • New expansions and offerings have been added to the Taos Bike Park:
    • Building upon the popularity of the Green Chile Flow Trail, a handful of new trails give mountain bikers more options. Intermediate trails Pop Rocks, Grip It And Rip It, and Blue Bottles have been added, as well as an advanced trail, Risky Biscuit. An additional intermediate trail, Hondo, will open later this summer. These trails feature everything guests loved about Green Chile – the lift-served access, the amazing scenery, the attainable challenge, and the excitement – but taken to the next level with tighter and steeper features.
    • Also launching for the first time this summer are mountain biking private lessons for groups of up to 4 people. Lessons includes bike rental, all safety gear, lift ticket, and 3 hours of instruction.
  • The one-of-a-kind Via Ferrata climbing experience is back. Situated at 11,500 feet in the sub-alpine ecosystem of Kachina Peak, it features beginner through advanced climbing route challenges, a 100-foot skybridge, and a double-cable catwalk. For the first time this summer, sunset tours will be available.
  • Scenic Lift Rides allow riders to enjoy the spectacular alpine scenery of the Kachina Basin.
  • Winter 23 season passholders have the option to upgrade their pass to add an Unlimited Summer Lift Pass for $175, or $225 for non-passholders. This provides unlimited access to Lift 4 while it’s operating for either mountain biking or scenic lift rides. 
  • On June 30, Taos Air will restart its popular seasonal service offering direct public charter flights to and from Austin Executive Airport, Dallas Love Field, Hawthorne Municipal Airport in Los Angeles, and McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, California. Service resumes just in time for Texas and California-based travelers to enjoy the Rocky Mountain adventures in Taos, and Taoseños to escape for their own summer vacations. Taos Air offsets 100% of its carbon impact and has been since 2018, making it the world’s first carbon-neutral airline. Taos Air passengers can receive one complimentary Scenic Lift Ride at Taos Ski Valley.

The resort’s base-area hotel, The Blake at Taos Ski Valley, reopened May 26. Visitors will find a number of dining options throughout the ski valley this summer, including 192 in The Blake and The Bavarian. Corporate events and weddings are also welcome in the ski valley, which features an array of venues with stunning mountain vistas.
