I am reposting here from the Taos County forum as I believe this may be the more widely read forum.
A lot has been written about Taos' wonderful ski school and the mountain's appropriateness for beginner and intermediate skiers despite its reputation as an expert's resort. As a cautious and still learning intermediate skier I understand that the color rating of each run is relative to all the runs at a particular mountain. As one forum contributor said ,"Taos greens are Angel Fire blacks". Is this an exaggeration? On the East Coast I'm comfortable on blue runs at all the major resorts.
How do the green and blue runs at Taos compare to other resorts in Colorado and Utah, especially those that cater to families or relaxed recreational skiers; think Beaver Creek or Deer Valley where we were comfortable skiing blue.
We prefer wide open cruisers with few surprises! Would be better off at Angel Fire?
How about Ski Santa Fe?
