EXPERIENCE KACHINA PEAK

 

KACHINA PEAK LIFT NOW OPEN!

Please Note, the Kachina Peak Lift will be temporarily closing at 12pm on Sunday, February 22 to support the IFSA Junior Freeride event.   

EXPERIENCE KACHINA PEAK

Beginning this ski season, skiers and riders will be able to access Taos Ski Valley's celebrated Kachina Peak via a new chairlift. The Kachina Peak Lift was successfully installed during the summer of 2014 and will summit at 12,450 feet, making it one of the highest chairlifts in North America. The lift will increase the mountain’s advanced and expert lift-serviced terrain by 50 percent.  Be sure to experience it yourself this season!


 


THE BIGGEST THING IN NORTH AMERICAN SKIING?

The new lift going up at Taos Ski Valley is arguably the biggest thing happening in North American skiing this year, and it could prove to be a huge boost for the state's tourism.


ABOUT THE KACHINA PEAK LIFT

The Kachina Peak Lift will allow guests to experience a variety of terrain, including advanced trails, tree chutes and open bowls. Additionally, skiers and riders will be able to hike from the lift drop-off to the summit of Kachina Peak to experience some of the most spectacular scenery in the Rocky Mountains. Taos Ski Valley has also committed to preserving a majority of the hiking terrain that is currently available. 

The American made triple-seated fixed grip lift, manufactured by SkyTrac, will rise 1,100 vertical feet in five minutes to a top elevation of 12,450 feet. The additional elevation will give Taos a lift-served vertical drop of 3,250 feet.
