Mr. Luxury Ski
The Blake at Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
Northern New Mexico’s Taos Ski Valley has long stayed under the ski radar despite boasting two towering peaks blanketed by over 300 inches of powder annually. With the opening of The Blake at Taos Ski Valley, the resort stakes out its spot on North America’s luxury ski scene with slope-side rooms and a hot new restaurant, all part of a reported $300-million investment revamping the entire resort. All 80 guest rooms and suites balance historic Taos influences with the Alpine style of the original resort village—lots of natural wood, aspen print wallpaper, historic pueblo photography, and hits of coral and turquoise. Slide into 192 at the Blake for a New Mexican twist on the après-ski with a massive communal kiva fireplace, a curated wine cellar, and eclectic tapas featuring locally sourced meat, cheese, and produce.
