Mini Blizzard at the Basin

Outside of Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico, Ponce de Leon is now just the remnants of an old hot springs resort. These pools are located near many private residences, so make sure to obey all signs and be courteous to the nearby houses. The upper pool is usually the most reliable bath, but don’t expect a clean, full pool. Also, expect an exceedingly muddy road during the winter and spring.
