Mr. Luxury Ski
While everyone has their favorite resorts, true ski aficionados claim allegiance to one favorite destination. Here's what your choice says about you.
Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
You crave an authentic, old-school ski escape that won't be spoiled by hordes of millennial techies or truckloads of Texans, the type of resort where the only bottle serve for 100 miles is of the beer variety and expert terrain means steep and deep. News of a $300 million reimagining of the Taos Ski Valley resort village has you worried that your beloved "private" northern New Mexico resort has been discovered. And maybe it's true. Rest assured, you will always have bragging rights that you've been skiing Taos since the days when snowboards were forbidden and you had to hike Kachina peak. It makes for a good tale to tell as you ride up the new Kachina Chairlift to 12,481 feet.
