It's one of the last old-school, skiers-only resorts. Your lift ticket dollar haven't been spent on elaborate halfpipes, lift reconfiguration, or regrading. It's all about a traditional ski experience, complete with a little hiking, traversing, and skating. We did the Ski Week, getting six mornings of intensive instruction and guided exploration. We could ski it!
Note: the airport x-ray machines that screen carry-on baggage are rather powerful. My 800ASA film got hopelessly fogged. Beware, now that higher-speed film is more common. These photos were salvaged with some serious GIMP manipulation.
advantage of the ski week is that the instructor is also a guide.
While most of the clientele practiced PerfectTurns(TM) on the
groomers, we hiked for the good stuff, like this steep tree shot named
passes the final exam.
our ski week with a visit to the Martini Tree, where our favorite
mixed drink is stored under the powdery Taos snow.
