About Kyle Zottnick

Kyle and Crystal, along with a few family members, pooled resources to purchase this awesome Taos Ski Valley condo late summer of 2014. Recently married, we are a combined family with our teen base ball player, Shane and a Siberian Husky named Timber. We reside in Albuquerque, NM and frequently enjoy the condo.

Kyle Zottnick purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kyle Zottnick chose Taos Ski Valley

We’ve been skiers for three decades and Taos was always a ski area we enjoyed coming to every year. The ski area is large and world class but it has a small town local vibe. There are year round activities up in the valley so we found ourselves looking just as forward to our summer visits. We probably became silly excited about this place during our summer and winter lunches on the deck of the Bavarian. There is nothing like the feel of the warm sun in the cool mountain air. The large deck at the Bavarian is rustic and sun drenched. The views of Kachina and Wheeler are incredible. A little walk through the trees behind the Bavarian is our Wheeler Peak condo. The windows in the family room look out past the covered deck up into the Williams Lake valley. It’s incredible to be able to enjoy that magical mountain experience from the condo now too.

What makes this condo unique

Use of the owners over sized garage will ease the burden of having to lug your skies, boots, bikes, or gear up to the condo. In the garage you will find a heated space with ample room for your automobile too. No scraping snow and ice off your vehicle upon departure and no worries about locking up your bikes and skies.

Great stay in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! My wife and I will definitely be back again. Pictures of the condo don’t do it justice and the porch views of the mountains were more incredible than we thought. Everything was comfortable in the condo and it had a hotel suite feeling to it as well. The only downside was it was very busy in the area due to a popular trail head across from the condo. The area was packed because it was the weekend but the evenings and nights were quiet.

Excellent Spring Break Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful experience! It was as if the owners anticipated our every need. The condo was convenient, clean, and very well provisioned. We were comfortable and happy! With novice skiers in the family we drove each day to the base to the ski school. It was an easy drive each day and parking was no problem. We mostly ate in and cooked comfort food in the well equipped kitchen. We spent an evening at the Bavarian for a meal that was amazing and a highlight of the trip. The condo was perfect for quality family time! We would love to return!

Wonderful rental! Very comfortable and well stocked. Owners a pleasure to work with.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this rental at Taos!

This was the best stocked rental on VRBO and HomeAway that we have rented. They supplied plenty of extra towels, pillows, linens, etc. They were also well stocked on items such as toilet paper, paper towels, tinfoil, kleenex, plastic wrap, dish detergent, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, and more.

The rental is within walking distance to a wonderful German restaurant and the bottom of a ski lift. If you get your equipment and lift tickets early you don't have to go to the base of the mountain to start skiing. We liked that the condo was not in a crowded area but was still convenient for skiing. The heated garage was such a nice perk. At the end of the day you can take your ski boots off in the chairs provided in the garage and not have to lug them around.

They are also very dog friendly. Our dog came with us and had a great time. The condo has several dog beds, dog dishes, and bags for cleaning up after them on your walks. Our dog probably had as much fun as we did.

Great amenities - it's like staying at your best friend's condo

  • 5 of 5

This condominium has great amenities such as extra towels, shampoo, hand cream, books, DVD's, board games, placemats, tablecloths, an extremely well stocked kitchen with everything from a Keurig coffee maker, crockpot and condiments to a heated garage with chairs in it and a ski boot drying rack. It's a 10-minute walk to the ski lift and near the Bavarian which is a wonderful restaurant. You really do need a 4-wheel drive or chains to get up the driveway to the condo - they are not kidding about this! It is clean and well-maintained - we had absolutely no issues while staying here. I would highly recommend it.

Wonderful Condo - Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo the first week of February 2018. We felt like we were at the top of the world! We skied and the snow was better then we thought it would be. It was an easy walk to the Bavarian Inn and the Wheeler Trail head for nice walks to lift 4 (which was not open) and to the lake. The cat-track down to the base area was perfect. The condo is exactly as described and the view is even better. We had beautiful days we could sit outside on the deck. It was very relaxing and just what we needed! We would defiantly stay again - we love Taos and the surrounding area.

Great condo, great view and attention to the details

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 really enjoyed the long weekend in Taos Ski Valley. The condo is a nice size and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen had everything that we needed. I was most impressed with the small things that the owners made available, including zip ties for ski passes, extra ski area maps and soft blankets in the living room.
