No. 10 Here, the best seat in the house sits 12,500 feet high.
Late-season skiers, rejoice. Thanks to the new Kachina Peak chair lift – one of the highest in the U.S. at 12,450 feet – lift-serviced terrain at Taos Ski Valley just doubled. “Ooooh” and “ahhhh” at the unparalleled views of northern New Mexico. And then get ready to hit the slopes, because this peak holds snow late into the spring. Whether skis are your thing or a snowboard is more your speed, Taos Ski Valley and Kachina Peak have a seat with your name on it.
