Personal, Customizable and Very Affordable

The Taos Snowsports school is a great way to get more out of your vacation and you can take advantage of it in many different ways. The Flagship of the Snowsports School is the Snowsports Week, but no Ski Schoolmatter how many days you will be skiing or riding here you should try one of our convenient offerings.

  • Discounted PM Private Lessons
  • Build-Your-Own Ski or Ride Groups and Snowsports Weeks

Regardless of your age or skill level there’s no better way to discover the hidden secrets of Taos, than participating in the Ernie Blake Snowsports School.

Taos is unique among ski resorts. It has a special character that some describe as mystical. It is a place of dramatic peaks, steeps, deep snow, remote chutes and an abundance of uncrowded blue/green cruisers.  And you will find that our Snowsports School is in a class by itself. Whether you are interested in improving your technique, increasing your enjoyment and knowledge of the mountain, or just enjoying your day, we will help you in every way! We hope you will be joining the many guests that return year after year for their Taos fix.  That’s our goal, as instructors and hosts, to make learning fun and engaging.
