khok101 was at taos a week ago and i would like to say it was awesome, okay most of the green runs at tao i kinda consider to be borderline blue, with alot of steep areas that my cousin had a really hard time handling when compared to the green runs at heavenly or those at keystone. last run of the day off the lift i twisted my knee and my ankle, word of warning when your tired as hell and not paying attention dont get off the real steep lifts. Manned up and went down the hill been a week and my ankle and knee are all good. Ankle still hurts and knee hurts if i twist it but other than that i dont feel the pain i did last week.

But other than that the place seemed totally board friendly, no flats to speak of. Chair 8 has some cool runs, especially if you go directly under the chair toward the top is a out of bounds section that had great tiny trees and untouched pow. Chair 7 serves a descent park. Have fun!
I will be going with some newer folks and I didn't see too many green and blue runs at Taos.

BMW_TT Thinking about hitting up Taos in Feb. I've been to Angelfire twice and want a change. Are the trails at Taos geared more towards skiers?

ShredTaos Just hit Taos, man. If you are in the area there is no reason to go to AnalFlair.

As for Taos, conditions have been pretty damn fun! Despite there be no storms recently, the snow is soft and carve-able due to the awesome warmer weather we have been having. Come enjoy yourselves!

Bretfred I maybe heading down there next weekend from Kansas. Usually always go to Co. Wanted to try something new probably will hit both angelfire and taos.

ScottVD Rode Taos for the first time few days ago 12/28/11 while on Christmas vacation in NM. Expected there to be a bad vibe toward snowboarders on the mountain, but it was totally cool. I talked with locals and visitors (mostly Texans) and they all (and I mean all) had really good things to say about the mountain opening up to snowboarding. The snow was surprisingly good considering it'd been ~12 days since dump, terrain was awesome - total thumbs up on this resort. Also rode Angel Fire which was an ok chill type small mountain, they do offer a small hill to ride at night.. so worth checking out if you're already in the area, but doesn't compare at all to Taos.

BMW_TT I hope Taos still gets snow in Feb-Mar. I plan to drive there from Dallas.
