Are you looking to escape the heat and do something fun with your family this summer? The Village of Taos Ski Valley invites you to come cool off and enjoy some great family activities..
SUMMER CHAIR LIFT RIDES
Taos Ski Valley's easiest and most relaxing way to escape the heat and enjoy the mountain scenery. Take in the spectacular views, blue skies and clear mountain air while riding the chairlift. At the top, experience unobstructed views of alpine peaks and abundant wildflowers. The lift will run 10am-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday through out the month of June, and will run through Labor Day, September 2nd, 2013. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids and can be purchased at Taos Ski and Boot, Co. Season Passes from the 2012-2013 season, as well as the 2013-2014 season, are good for summer lifts.
GOLF AT 9000 FEET?
It's Disc Golf - test your skill, keep the score, enjoy the views and spend a day in the mountains. Located around the base area and on Strawberry Hill this is a great way for the whole family to get together and try to outdo each other. Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a an elevated metal basket target which is the "hole," As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the "putt" lands in the basket and the hole is completed. Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional golf, whether it's sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway. Play is FREE and rental discs are available at Taos Ski and Boot at the base of Lift #1. Disc Golf is open daily from June 23rd until Oct 1st. Come check out the newly designed course!!!!

Based in the Taos Ski Valley and designed for children from first grade and up, our camps focus on hands-on learning experiences. Throughout each of the two week day camp sessions, we focus on several different themes (archeology, river ecology, wildlife biology, orienteering, etc.). We explore each theme and our surroundings through hikes, field notes and drawings, organized activities, art projects, and games. The older children sessions include an overnight. We also offer two one week sessions that include backpacking trips.
