Trip Ideas: Taos, New Mexico

The steeps of Kachina Peak should be on the résumé of any skier who’s got the chiles for it.

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

WHY: Because you like big terrain with little attitude, bro (yes, people in New Mexico will call you “bro”).

WHAT: The steeps of Kachina Peak should be on the résumé of any skier who’s got the chiles for it. This year, a new lift makes the hike shorter, which might attract gapers but also means you can rack up more laps.

WHERE: Get out of the Ski Valley and rage in the town of Taos proper. The Alley Cantina serves up real New Mexican food, stiff margs, live bands…and a resident ghost.
