2014-2015 Camps


CampsFor over 50 years, Taos has been famous for its Snowsports Week programs but with current lifestyles and modern pressures not everyone can get away for 7 days at a stretch. For all such mountain enthusiasts, Taos has invented the new and improved, concentrated and condensed mountain sports camps. The camps are fast, fun, friendly and focused so you can get the most out of your time on the mountain. They will have you feeling like you have been on snow for a week and it’s only a weekend. Camps begin Saturday morning and run through Sunday afternoon, eight hours of instruction in all. The price for all camps is $160 and does not include lift tickets. Lift tickets must be purchased separately. Pre-registration is recommended.


Taos Ski Valley will host the 2014 Ski & Snowboard Academy December 5th-7th, 2014.  The cost of the academy is $120 which includes three full days of coaching. Lift tickets are not included, but can be purchased for $25/daily.  The focus of the Academy is toward skiers and boarders interested in learning or developing their contemporary teaching and movement skills, based on the participants needs. Many current instructors and advanced skiers and riders regularly attend as a great season warm-up. No prior teaching experience is required. Academy includes:
