The pristine, undeveloped mountains surrounding the Taos Ski Valley are basically crowd free. Hikers and mountain bikers can find numerous trails through the New Mexico Rockies that lead to crystal clear mountain lakes and streams.

If hiking and pedaling up mountain trails isn’t your thing, local guides can take you to some of the most breathtaking sceneries on well-trained horses. Rides can include a chuck wagon dinner around the campfire.

Trout fishing is also a popular activity in the Taos Ski Valley. The beautiful clear waters of the Hondo River flow through the valley, providing stream fishing for rainbow and native trout. There are also local guides who are always available to lead you to some of the best fishing holes.

Alpine Village Suites, located steps away from alpine mountain lifts, is offering a June mid-week special. Visitors can receive 20-percent off any room Sunday through Thursday during the rest of this month. Enjoy the fine restaurants, exciting nightlife, and great shopping the village has to offer.

The Rio Hondo River flows right through the resort and an outdoor Jacuzzi overlooks the mountains. Also included with the offer is free mountain bike and fishing gear rentals for guests. Kids can also enjoy fishing for trout in their stocked fishpond.

Enjoy the warm ambiance of the Southwestern decoration, exposed wood beams, and large windows that offer stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Most units have gas-log fireplaces and kitchenettes.
