Taos Ski Valley continues $300m. investment with new high-speed Quad Chair lift, event space and dining build


B-Corp Ethic Underpins all upgrades to ensure environment, community and socially just rconomy are foremost.

TAOS SKI VALLEY, N.M. - Building on the last three seasons' investments, Taos Ski Valley continues to invest in its infrastructure and amenities to give visitors the best possible experience. The 2018-2019 winter season will mark the first time the resort has had a high-speed quad chairlift, which will quickly transport skiers and riders from the main base area up the mountain in just over five minutes. Additionally, Taos has renovated and re-imagined two popular dining areas, The Bavarian and The Phoenix Grill, giving resort-goers more restaurant choices while also creating modern and beautiful event spaces. These improvements round-out many upgrades Taos recently completed including the new state-of-the-art Children's Center and the new 'gondolita' connecting the base area with the beginner's area.

Other improvements visitors will notice this season include renovated restrooms, new seasonal lockers and kitchens in the main resort center, and another significant investment in high-capacity snowmaking equipment including new pumps, 30 new tower guns, and 50 new hydrants, which help provide better productivity and allow for more terrain to open during the early-season time frame.

Looking ahead, Taos will continue its ongoing collaborations with the U.S. Forest Service and The Nature Conservancy to develop more sustainable forest and river ecosystems, which involves further glading of the Wild West forest area.

As the world's first B Corp ski resort, Taos Ski Valley's is committed to ensuring that every investment, upgrade and operational decision is underpinned by a commitment to environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and economic contribution to the local communities in Taos and Northern New Mexico. Specific initiatives have been taken to continue to improve the resort's business operations, such as a new food digester to facilitate and reduce food waste, re-envisioned the recycling programs, and philanthropic programs that allow staff to work for local non-profits while still on the clock.

"Everything we do is about improving the guest experience while preserving the underlying spirit, soul, and history of the mountain," said Taos Ski Valley CEO David Norden. "Amid the rapidly consolidating ski industry, Taos Ski Valley remains proudly independent, but we recognize the need to give visitors a world-class experience, one that does more than offer great skiing, but which allows skiers and riders of all levels to enjoy all Northern New Mexico has to offer: great food, culture, art, history and spirit. We are doing all that with an unwavering commitment to being the industry's most visionary and proactive defender of the environment, our local culture, and our neighbors."

The 2018-2019 season is expected to open on November 22, 2018.
