Le Ski Mastery at Taos

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 14, 2010 10:42 am


Alain and Peggy Veth, owners of Le Ski Mastery, welcome you to their quaint ski shop featuring quality, exclusive products.

Alain was a ski racer throughout his childhood. He claimed the National Spain Championship title in 1982 in GS, many National titles in SL and GS in France, and placed top 15 in the World Junior Championship in Italy. He then became part of the French National Ski Team and participated in Europa Cup and World Cup and went on to Pro Race in the United States.

Currently, Alain and Peggy have two children racing on the Taos Ski Academy of which Alain is the head coach. Alain teaches at the famous Taos Ski School during the day and by night you can find him tuning and selling skis at Le Ski Mastery. His passion for skiing is abundant. Alain says, “When your body, your mind, and your well-tuned equipment become ONE you can then blend each turn on the mountain with grace and harmony. It becomes so effortless that you never want the slope to end … that’s what we aim for … it’s exalting, it’s pure!”

Le Ski Mastery has everything you’ll need for an exhilarating day of skiing.

Whether it’s a new pair of skis, a pair of boots custom-fitted with footbed, a ski outfit, gloves, goggles, glasses or a pair of demo skis precisely tuned, Le Ski Mastery is your source to be outfitted properly for a great day on the slopes at Taos Ski Valley.
Le Ski Mastery


Our demo/performance program allows skiers to rent by the day or by the week. Our qualified staff can help you narrow down your selection and lead you to the proper ski package. There are powder skis, shaped skis, racing skis, slalom and giant slalom skis, and many more … Whatever your ability, or preference, we have a ski package for you. Our demo skis are replaced each year so you are always on the most current, updated equipment. We carry women specific skis and boots. We believe skiing on the best equipment will make a huge difference in your ski experience.

A note from the Rossignol factory … The Rossignol Race Centers are the ONLY places where you can buy the real deal. Real race stock skis, boots, bindings – built with our race department’s know-how. When you walk into a Race Center, you’ll walk into a place with people who live, breathe, eat racing. Who understand what a millimeter here or there can mean in a ski’s sidecut. Who will give you the answers to questions you may have about waxes and who know the race results from the latest World Cup races, as well as from your local hills.

We are an exclusive ROSSIGNOL RACE CENTER in New Mexico. We carry the entire race line, which includes race skis (SL, GS, SG, DH), race boots with different flex patterns and race bindings with din setting to 18. If you are a junior racer with high expectation or a master races who wishes to fine tune their racing skills, we have the proper tools to achieve your dreams.

We carry the famous Nordica boots called the “Dobermann” for juniors to adults. This year Nordica developed a new junior race boot from the Dobermann shell. The flex is appropriate for junior racers and gives tham a great lateral support combined with a good flex.

A note from the Stockli factory …
The Laser GS Jr. and the Laser SL Jr. are the ONLY handmade junior race skis available today … period! These skis are downsized versions of the World Cup skis, same materials, same lay-up and best of all, same base material. This translates into the fastest junior race skis known to mankind.

The Cross represents a new generation in Skier-Cross Competition skis. This is a dual purpose ski for the advanced competitor to the hard core racer who wants an advantage, but only wants to buy one ski. Great as an advanced to expert all mountain ski. The ski has 28 laminates of wood and incorporates all the same features of the GS ski.

We also carry the full racing line of Stockli, the SL, GS and SG.

We have a complete line of racing protective gear – shin guards, pole guards, face guard, back protector, helmet, etc…

All your race tuning gizmos are available – laser cut file, base beveler, side bevel, brushes, scrapers, fluro waxes, iron, etc.
