It”s Dean”s Birthday! The Best Reason To Ski Taos!

I haven”t had a chance to ski Taos for a couple of years.

. . . so it was really cool to sneak down there and surprise my soul-mate ski buddy Dean and go rip around on the early ski season hard pack. Since I use to live there and ski Taos for many years, it was good to be back on a warm, blue sky, no wind, picture perfect day and take in the magic of Northern New Mexico.

If you are planning to ski Taos, it”s time to get it done . . .

As Dean was saying on the video, there are big plans for Taos in the coming years; new chairs and some significant expansion. I suppose that is all good in the name of progress but if you want savor the old-style, old-world simplicity of historic Taos and Taos Ski Valley, the time is now.

I remember February”s of one pounding storm after another, 4o” days of the lightest, driest fluff you could ever imagine and monthly totals of 8ft.

Born and raised in Taos, he”s lived,skied and raced at Taos since the early days. He”s the home town boy who now has ski shops all over the state and is your go-to guy for whatever you need when you are there: rentals, hotel, clothes, food – he can set you up. www.CottamsSkiShops.com

Don”t You Think It”s Time To Ski Taos?
