Backcountry Skiing Brings Avalanche Safety to the Forefront

Will Ford of The Washington Post shares his experience from a day exploring the backcountry of Taos Ski Valley.

"In the coming year, the resort’s first high-speed chairlift will replace its old base lift, shortening ride times by about 40 percent. Taos’s new luxury base lodge, the Blake, sits just behind it along with a gondola, opened last year, that shepherds skiers along the base area. But even with the updates that began with new ownership a few years ago, Taos retains its laid-back, old-school vibe." Says Ford.
