About Julie and Gary Gittings

We are Gary and Julie Gittings and we obviously adore Taos year round but especially in ski season. We first came to ski in Christmas of 1999 and started dreaming of owning our own special place in the mountain. We want you to love the experience as much as we do.

Julie and Gary Gittings purchased this condo in 2008

Why Julie and Gary Gittings chose Taos Ski Valley

Taos Ski Valley is uncrowded and friendly without pretension. When they say it is truly a skier's mountain and the unresort resort, they mean that everyone values and respects the fact that we all just love to ski or ride. Not that the shops and restaurants aren't amazing and authentic also, but the mountain rules them all. You need all wheel or 4WD however in winter.

What makes this condo unique

Are you excited about the Kachina Chair that we can see in addition to lift 4 and lift 7, Highline Ridge, Fraser and Wheeler Peak itself? Our condo boasts the best breathtaking views of any location. In summer walk out the door to the Williams Lake Trailhead - cool 70 degrees. Ski season, we walk to the lift - at 5 minutes - but you can drive over and drop off your equipment and start at lift 4. Check out the trail map to see how you will get first tracks by being here at mid-mountain. (If you need to drop small children off at Ski School, either leave extra time to ski them down the green return trail or drive them down the mountain in your 4WD vehicle)

Exactly as advertized. Great location, just a walk to the lifts.

We did spring break skiing for a family of 4. The condo had plenty of room for our family. The boot warmers came in handy, the view (of Kachina) was perfect to wake up to, all appliances worked and extras were on site. We did not get to use the garage but fortunately, it was not too cold.

The location is a few hundred yards to the uncrowded lift 4. If someone wanted to take a break (rest) at the condo mid day, it was easy to get to.

Perfect for a family, we recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such nice words! It gives us very warm feelings when a family enjoys togetherness at and in the mountain. The Kachina spirit stays with us all long after we leave physically each time.

Great condo, friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Great place!! Breathtaking views of the mountain out the front deck, and a short walk over to chair 4 for great skiing. Plenty of space for the 4 adults and 3 small children and the condo had everything we needed- fully equipped kitchen, warm gas fireplace, nice sitting area, plenty of entertainment, even boot/glove warmers. Property was clean and well-maintained. Two full bathrooms and very comfy beds. We had a great time. Julie and Gary were very responsive, friendly, and were great hosts. We would definitely stay again next time we’re in the area.

Paradise in Taos

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest, best-furnished and equipped rental condo we've ever had at a ski place, ever. Julie and Gary have thought of everything, including boot warmers! While warm and cozy, the condo is spacious - and what a location to the slopes. We hope to be back, winter and/or summer.

Owner's Response: Wow - what a day I have had - My first day in a yellow jacket as I am learning to be a children's ski instructor - AND a 5/5 review with such lovely specifics for our condo - and we didn't even provide you with an outdoor gas grill - which we now have! Christmas present from the kids. Thank you thank you. yes, please come in the summer to hike! all the best for 2014, Julie and Gary

I’d like to thank you for sharing your cozy condo! It was great and we absolutely enjoyed our time during our vacation!

You were right. The views are breathtaking! We took a lot of pictures, but, as beautiful as they are, none of them can do a complete justice to the views in person! ?

Again, your condo was perfect, providing everything one might need… and a little more!

Thank you so much!

Car: necessary

The snow at Taos is light and plentiful. The mountain has a challenge for everyone at any level especially for the expert skier and adventurer who is willing to skip into a secret stash just off the main trails.

Summer features ideal hiking weather with low humidity, sunshine early and late, cool nights and never too hot. We are at trailhead of Lake Williams and Wheeler Peak.
