Intermediates—and especially advanced intermediates—can explore 47 percent of Taos’ terrain. The best blue Taos terrain can be found off of the Lift 8 chairlift. Intermediates will want to head up Lift 1 or 5, and make their way down Porcupine or Powderhorn Bowl—two ideal intermediate runs—to the bottom of Lift 8. At the top of the lift head skier’s right and enjoy the long, well-groomed descent down Lower Stauffenberg or Firlefanz. Intermediates also have a couple of notable terrin options off of Lift 4 and 7. More-seasoned intermediates will find that Taos is an ideal ski resort to challenge their skills, since the terrain offers a nice intermingling of black diamond and blue runs, providing the opportunity to bail out, if necessary.
