Regardless of your age or skill level there’s no better way to discover the hidden secrets of Taos, your skiing or riding, or yourself than participating in the Ernie Blake Ski or Ride 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 Ski and Ride Schools are in a class by themselves.  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. And 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.
