- Ski Bum....Taos and Crested Butte.
Taos pass price now is the “early bird rate”. They’ll pause the sale in April and will restart in the fall at $200 or so extraThanks for this.
For my Colorado-based mountains (A-Basin, Wolf Creek, Epic Local) I'm used to initial pricing for season passes as being prominently tagged as "early bird rates". To drive purchase commitments, of course. Didn't see that with Taos marketing yesterday. Maybe that's a New Mexico thing?
This is because we left the state yesterday. You are welcome...Big storm coming. 4 days and maybe 2' plus. It's cold now let's hope it stays cold for the storm.

Putting myself out there for MA in ski school thead.
Lower part of Longhorn after enjoying R&R:
MA request: Taos bumpsTime to embarrass myself with a MA request again. This is not my best effort but representative of the issues and poor technique that needs improvement. What I see is that I am not absorbing as well and staying too upright. All and any feedback is welcome.www.skitalk.com
Being able to skip the little climb/sidestep/skate is even better!Kachina is skiing great! Being able to skip the lift line because of the ski week was an unexpected perk.
Very true, only had to do that climb once today thankfully.Being able to skip the little climb/sidestep/skate is even better!
Heading up there now.Chilling at Whistlestop letting my skis cool off. @Neurodrive

They make these chairs so when you sit in them you can’t get out. You have to like roll out.
Le Ski Mastery is my go to shop!!!I had a great first day of the ski week and can already see why so many of you end up coming back here for this. Thanks @Tex for showing me around, it was fun following your smooth skiing. I have to laugh at both of us telling each other we need to take it easy since it's the first day, but we still kept ending up in the bumps.
I may look at demoing skis for the upcoming storm. Any suggestions for the conditions we are likely to have and a recommended shop?
