Taos Ski Valley Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Situated at over 10,000ft and just a short walk from the Kachina ski lift, the Alpenglow Chalet is waiting to become your family's favorite getaway. One of the newest accommodations in Taos Ski Valley, this vacation property offers *unmatched* views of Kachina Peak and the Sangre de Cristo mountains surrounding the ski area. Thanks to it's height in the valley, sunrise and sunset paints a special glow on the mountains, hence the name "Alpenglow Chalet".

This property has all the extra touches to make your vacation memorable. Downstairs it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus plenty of storage for your outdoor gear. Heated tile floors take the edge off the brisk mountain temperatures and the fire place in the middle of the floor-to-ceiling windows is the perfect setting for a night of stories, cards, and laughs. Also, enjoy the large, flat screen TV recently installed in July 2011. The kitchen is open and has plenty of counter space for cooking big meals for the large groups that fill our condo. Upstairs, you'll find comfortable couches, a TV for DVDs, and dozens of movies and board games- it's perfect for the kids or young adults. Additionally, there is one queen, one standard, and three twin bunks in this spacious loft area.

If you don't feel like cooking, you're in luck! The highly-acclaimed Bavarian Restaurant is our neighbor. You will find delicious homemade German meals and the finest imported beers served in a beautiful and rustic Bavarian lodge. No need to drive, it's just down the trail!

In the summer, the Alpenglow Chalet is the perfect headquarters for all your outdoor adventures. Adjacent trails lead into protected Wilderness Areas and onto the picturesque Williams Lake. Towering above the condo is Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico, and a great place to hike. We also neighbor 'Northside', a collection of mountain bike and hiking trails for all skill levels.

During the winter, a short 5 minute walk takes you to the base of the Kachina lift, where you can skip the crowds by putting on your skis or snowboard starting your day on the fresh backside snow! The easy access to and from the condo means you can have a hot lunch in the well stocked kitchen, or sit on the deck and watch your family and friends ski the Kachina bowl and trails.

Roads are well maintained in the summer and plowed in the winter, however chains (available w/ most car rentals) or a 4x4/AWD is strongly recommended in the winter.

We met serving in the Air Force. Mark & Heather were married while stationed in England, where they also met Rob. The three of us have traveled the world together and shared many amazing memories. Mark and Rob still serve in the Air Force and climb mountains together in a charity program. Mark and Heather have two kids that are quickly growing up to be amazing skiers and rock climbers.

Jennifer Hillberg purchased this condo in 2007

We LOVE the mountains and that is why we bought this property. It is perfect for our families and we hope you are able to experience the stunning sunsets and unbeatable views. Each morning we wake up in the condo puts a huge smile on our faces! Give it a try- we're willing to bet you'll love it too.

Since we are moving all over the nation/world, we wanted a place we could always meet at and call 'home' together. So, while stationed in Albuquerque, we purchased this beautiful property! Now stationed elsewhere in the nation, we still meet up there at least 2-3 times a year in order to share more good times in the mountains and keep involved in our friends' and families' lives.

We love how close it is to the Kachina lift. It gives us time to have a leisurely breakfast before walking w/ the kids to the lift area. Plus, having a beer at the Bavarian is nice b/c we can just walk back to the condo and not worry about driving.

In the summer we like to enjoy our coffee on the deck, then head out for a hike along the creek (just a stones throw away) or get our discs out for the free frisbee golf course.

At night we love to cook large meals and feed big crowds of friends and family, then gather around the fireplace for card games that last late into the night.

If it's winter, we make sure to go out for at least one night of moon-lit skiing in the backcountry above Lake Williams. It's a magical experience. (But we don't recommend it unless you are an expert in backcountry travel)

Perfect Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 30, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
I joined some old friends at the Alpenglow to ski over spring break and we all had an outstanding time. The condo is spacious, comfortable, and homey. It was a great venue to catch up on old times while we cooked, played games, enjoyed the views, and recovered from the long days of skiing. The skiing itself was great, and the easy walk from the Alpenglow to the lifts was fantastic. We couldn't ask for better convenience. I'll definitely stay here again next winter, and now I want to check it out in the summer too.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
For the last 9 years we have been making ski trips out to Taos and we have stayed all over the place: in the village, in town, and now up at Alpenglow Chalet. This location, specifically this condo, will be at the top of my list to book going forward. The condo was quite nice with plenty of linens/towels, spices in the kitchen, DISH TV, spacious loft, and large master bath (and closet). We walked to the lift/Bavarian everyday; the walk is not much longer than what you have from the shuttle drop off, through the village, to the lift. Add in the time on the parking lot shuttle and it becomes a wash. The bonus of staying up on the Kachina side is that you do not have to 2-chair your way out of the base area. You start your day away from the crowds/chaos of the base area!

Side note (but an important one): The owners/managers/maintenance staff for the condo were all amazing in their communication while a major/minor crisis was happening. A water main broke near the complex the night before our arrival. They promptly communicated the issue and the progress of the resolution via email and phone calls. We arrived to no issues and an amazing time. I truly felt like they were concerned for our trip and not just their revenue! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Jonathan- Awesome news that you loved the location- that's our favorite characteristic of the condo! Walking to the Bavarian and lift is a great way to start/end the day. And you're right- it's way faster than parking in the lot and then taking the shuttle. Best part is going to be next season when the Kachina lift is in place... you'll be able to get access to it way faster than from the front side of the mountain. (We can't wait to make multiple laps up there since we stare at that face daily from the condo).

And thank you for the side note/compliments regarding communication between us and our guests. We want people like you to come back year after year, so ensuring your stay goes well is our top priority. Plus, we value our own vacation time and believe in the Golden Rule, so we want your vacation to be awesome. We got lucky that the underground pipe breakage didn't affect our property and your stay- though you can be sure we'd find a way to make things work out if it had.

Hope to see you guys staying with us again next year for some Kachina runs! --Rob M

Owners Take Good Care of Their Guests!

Our stay didn't begin on the right foot -- we arrived late at night with small children in tow, only to discover that somehow the condo hadn't been cleaned from the last guests. The owners quickly remedied the situation, getting us into alternative accommodations and ensuring that our stay was good. It was the owner's personal communications with us that really sealed the deal. We would stay in the condo again, primarily because of the excellent attention and care provided by the owner. Thank you, Heather!

Owner's Response: Adelma- Thank you for your feedback and especially for your understanding/flexibility. We pride ourselves on operating a responsive and high-quality mountain property and we were saddened that you had to experience our rare hiccup. However, we're happy we could work things out with you guys and that you were still able to enjoy a weekend high in the mountains. Most importantly, we look forward to having you and your family stay with us in the future- hopefully for a weekend of fresh snow and lots of Lobo basketball coverage!! Cheers- Heather, Mark and Rob

Wonderful ski trip!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We had a wonderful stay!! We had two families in the condo and it was perfect- 4 adults and 5 kids! We prepared almost every meal in the condo and it was stocked with adequate supplies for preparing from dishes to even had a cabinet full of spices! The view was beautiful and everyone was very kind and helpful! We were all beginner skiers and found the ski school for the adults and for the kids to be just delightful and very helpful!! We hope to return one day!

Owner's Response: Karen- we're happy to finally have you and your family/friends stay in the condo! I know how much you've been looking forward to your vacation and I'm very happy you found our Alpenglow Chalet everything you expected. The setting couldn't get much better, eh?! Bring your merry bunch back again this summer for a totally different experience- 4th of July parade and fireworks in the Ski Valley are great fun, as is BBQing burgers/ribs and spitting watermelon seeds from the sun filled deck!

Best Wishes- Rob M

Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We had a blast over the Thanksgiving holiday! The condo is located perfectly within the valley. Easy access to the backside of the mountain enabled us to ski-in/ski-out everyday! Also, the proximity to the Bavarian was extremely enjoyable. We cannot wait to take another vacation to Taos Ski Valley!!

Owner's Response: Garett- So happy you enjoyed two of our favorite perks of the property's location- the easy access to the backside lift (never crowded!) and of course having the best German food in the Southwest as your neighbor. Not sure if you got to try their fish and chips- it's trout panfried in a coarse corn meal with the perfectly breaded french fries. Mmm... my favorite ski day lunch! Come stay with us again and give 'em a try! Cheers - Rob M

Use 'satellite' imagery function on the map to find the four green roofs just up the valley- that's the correct location for the Alpenglow Chalet! Will be fixed as soon as VRBO gets their map working right :)
