About the property

Taos Ski Valley Lodging - 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Location, Location, Location!! Our Bavarian Chalet is located at the base of Lift 4 with its access to the new Kachina Peak Lift. The Bavarian Restaurant and Après Ski fun is right outside your door. In the summer the Williams Lake hiking trail, Wheeler Peak (highest peak in New Mexico), mountain bike trails, hiking trails, fly fishing, horseback riding, etc are also right outside your door.

Once inside the Chalet you are greeted with the mountain chic interior design of Alexandra Champalimaud, 2012 inductee to the Interior Design Hall of Fame. Thanks to her efforts the Bavarian Chalets were recognized as a 2009 best of the year finalist by Interior Design Magazine.

After a long day skiing/snowboard, hiking or other outdoor activity you enter a mudroom (ample ski/snowboard and gear storage), a warm open plan living, kitchen and dining area with ample space for your group, powder room and gas fireplace. The second floor includes a master suite and a bunkroom. The master suite includes a luxurious king bed, desk, outside deck and private bath. The bunkroom includes 2 bunk beds (4 single beds), a desk and private bath. The third floor is a master suite with a luxurious king bed, sitting area, office and private bath.

The attached pictures by Emily Minton Redfield do a better job of illustrating the style and comfort which awaits you. The Chalet incorporates locally sourced materials, such as dead-standing timbers and locally inspired themes. The feature wall in the living room, timber framing and stainless steel firebox cladding all recall the valleys mining tradition. Artwork is comprised of old Taos ski advertisements, black and white wilderness photography and the like.

This Chalet is perfect for a group of friends a large family or two families with young children to enjoy all of what Taos and the Taos Valley Ski area have to offer.

Amazing property, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property, exactly as described! The Bravarian chalet was warm and inviting and extremely stylish as the pictures displayed. It was equipped with all the amenities as described. All the bedding was super comfortable and the owners went over the top to accommodate our three-year-old daughter to provide her with toys from their home. We will definitely stay at this property again. The location was convenient to ski Valley and several restaurants on the mountain. We were extremely pleased!

Awesome Bavarian Chalet!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for New Year’s Day. Location was beautiful, just outside of Lift 4. Extraordinary scenery and close to TSV. The Chslet is gorgeous, with lots of space and gadgets. The only downsize is the altitude. If you are not accustomed to go from lower elevetations to higher elevations (+10,000 ft), you may suffer from altitude sickness, which may include headache, dizziness, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing, some may also have coordination problems. Several of us experienced this at different levels. When your body gets used to altitude symptoms starts disappearing, but for us one or 2 people never got used to it. We also got a late winter and never got snow, so only 10% of the trails were open. Lift 4 was closed. We might try it at a later month. Overall our experience was pretty good. My 5 yr old kids loved it and even had some games and sleds to play with. Thank you to the owner for a great communication all the time and make us feel super welcomed. We will definitely be back!

Very nice and well appointed property.

  • 3 of 5

This property is very nice and the lift is a short walk across a parking lot. We were surprised to learn a few things at the last minute. You must have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to drive up the mountain to get there. And when I say drive up, I mean straight up. Altitude is an issue if you aren't used to it. We noticed a big difference between the altitude at the base and the chalet. Also, the "chalet" is a duplex, there is another condo sharing a wall and parking with you. You are very close to the neighbors. All that said, the property was nice and the people on Taos mountain are very friendly.

Great property -- great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location and beautiful property. We had ski in ski out access, it snowed 5 inches while we we there, and it is the best ski mountain in the US for varied and steep terrain. Loved it.

And the owners were great to work with.
