CHILDREN'S CENTER

Ski SchoolAt Taos Ski Valley, we have all kinds of activities for families and teens. Mountain vacations have always been a family affair here, so we make it easy to introduce your children to snowsports while ensuring you have a great time too. We have developed a series of unique children's programs, led by specially trained instructors and housed in a state-of-the-art facility that kids will be comfortable using as a "home base" during the day. Children even have their own area, pint-sized lifts, special terrain, and equipment shop. Check in for lessons begin at 8am. Classes start to form at 9:30 am. Please come early in order to have your child registered and be fitted for equipment by 9am. Pick up time is 2:30 to 4:00. 

Reservations are strongly recommended for all the Children's Center Programs and are required March 9th - 11th, & 15th-19th. For reservations, CLICK HERE TO BOOK ONLINE

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.
