WHERE IS THE CHILDREN'S SKI SCHOOL LOCATED?

When you enter the Taos Ski Valley you drop down a hill to our parking area. The children's center is the first building you will see on your right hand side. There is a large wooden sign at the edge of the parking lot with children's center listed on it. You can park in our temporary parking for the children's center to register your children and then drive to the main parking area for all day parking. You can also park in the main parking area and catch one of our parking lot shuttles which makes a stop at the children's center, check your children in and then catch the shuttle up to our resort center for ticket sales, ski rentals, adult ski school and the main lift.
