Snow Day

February 10, 2009 | By | Comments (5)


For me, it was love at first sight.

Growing up, we never went on snow-filled vacations, but opted for with sandy beaches instead. I never got "snow days" from school, but instead watched Dallas shut down due to ice. Snow was something I had only seen on the big screen. So when I saw all that snow in Taos, New Mexico last year, well, I was smitten.

From watching skiers at the Bavarian Lodge and Restaurant to driving to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire, a visit to Taos is all about relaxation and exploration. Taos Ski Valley right now has 84 inches of snow and primo conditions for skiing. Or, if you’re like me, making snowballs and simply gazing at the beautiful white stuff.

Check it for more information.

    Taos Rocks. Great skiing – Good Food and cool people. Don’t miss white-water rafting in summer!
    Killer fly fishing as well.
    Taos Pueblo is a cultural treasure and a window into Native life.
    My wife and I loved the music and people we met at the Adobe Bar & Taos Inn.
    The breakfast burritos at Mantes Chow Cart are to die for with delicious Green Chile.
    Taos is worth discovering.

    Crossroads Pizza, here I come. It’s the only pizza place I’ve been where, while you sit at the bar, they will make your FINE pizza while giving you the play by play of the night’s basketball games as they watch it on their little TV. (We ski during March Madness–GO MEMPHIS!)

    My wife, son, and I only discovered the marvel that is skiing about 5 years ago, and Taos Ski Valley deserves much of the credit for all three of us now being bitten with the ski bug. Make that mauled with the bug. Since that first trip we’ve been back once and we plan another trip this year. It’s a small resort, but known as one of the toughest for skiing. Heck of a place to learn, right? Actually, the ski school is rated one of the country’s best and the people there — the resort staff, the restaurateurs, the shop owners — are every bit as hospitable as us Southerners. If you can’t tell, I love the place and can’t wait to get back.
