wow! what a week!

Stayed: January 2013
This property is as described and very nice. We stayed with 2 adults and 3 kids ranging from 11 months to 5 yrs old, and the condo is perfectly suited for that. I tend to agree with earlier reviews that the couches could be upgraded, but in all fairness it did not bother us at all. The place is immaculately clean, and -great for families with small kids- there is not much that can be broken. The place is decorated in a modern fashion, so its spacious, light and generally a very comfortable place to hang out. The kitchen is very well equiped. The views are indeed fantastic. There is unlimited space outside to build igloos and play in the snow; our kids loved it!
We dropped off the kids at the Taos ski school @ the base area a couple of days, so we skied from there as well. We had tons of snow first days, so snow tires & chains on our 2WD were a necessity. A 4WD would have been even better, but we managed without. Drive to base is less than 10 minutes. Walking to the Kachina lift/Bavarian is no problem.
The Ski school was very good, and the kids enjoyed it a lot. Our 5yr old made very good progress, in just 3 days.
To conclude: The condo and Taos Ski Valley come highly recommended! And last but not least: the owner is a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Rob!

Owner's Response: Hein- We're real happy you guys scored such a great snowfall and ski conditions. Getting that high up in the Ski Valley while it's snowing makes for a truly memorable experience, eh?! I'm especially glad to know that the Ski Valley's ski school helped your kids. I hear it's highly rated, so it sounds like they've earned their rating. We're also real happy to hear your kids were outside playing- some people miss out on all the fun of sledding, cave building, exploring, and snow ball fights in all the outdoor space. Come on back again- we'd love to have you guys stay for the summer or next winter. Cheers- Rob
