Travel Tips for Taos

Taos Tip

by smoox

Visitors are welcome, although there is an entrance fee plus a fee for the camera. I think that´s a very sensible way of making the best of the situation. Please respect the inhabitants´ right to privacy although you have paid the fees; many tourists walk straight into the living rooms and will barge into anything.

Don't be Scared off by "Al's Run"!!!!

Should start by saying that Taos Ski Valley is a SKIING ONLY ski resort., so sorry to any snowboarder out there because as a surfer I think snowboarding is very cool indeed.

The area has a reputation for some pretty difficult skiing, but I'm here to assure that me, a mediocre intermediate level skiing absolutely loved it.

We loved how pleasant it was to ski in the sunshine with the air temperature being a tad more mild than skiing the U.P. with our Wisconsin relatives! (the master of understatement strikes again! LOL!).

To reinforce that it's for everyone. Of the 110 trails 24% are beginners, 25% intermediate & 51% are expert. With an average snowfall of around 300 inches & an average of more than 300 days per year of sunshine...,WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!! We brought all our own gear, including skis, but you could hire/rent anything you need, including clothes, there at a number of places in Taos Ski Valley.

Taos ski Valley is currently scheduled to stay open till April 11, 2004. so you still have plenty of time to get out there you Americans, particularly you Texans, southern Colorado people & all New Mexicans!

Rio Grande Gorge Bridge

by gulo

Are you not afraid of heights ?
Then take a walk on a bridge 650 feet over the Rio Grande Gorge. Take a picture from the bridge or even better from the west side for better view.
A scene from movie Natural Born Killers was filmed here

To get there drive west on US 64 north of Taos

There is very little traffic in this area and it's quite easy to park the car in the small parking lot nearby and walk back over the bridge for some stunning scenery. We were there early in August and the river is full and colored with clay from the monsoons.

Earthship Biotecture

by leafmcgowan

Along Highway 64 just southwest of Taos, New Mexico is a sustainable living community of Biotecture homes called "Earthships". Earthships are passive solar homes made of natural and recycled materials designed for off-the-grid living. Earthships also embrace a thermal mass construction for temperature stabilization and incorporating renewable energy and integrated water systems making the Earthship an off-grid home with little to no utility bills. Most of the Earthship designs are created by Earthship Biotecture of Taos, NM. The homes are primarily constructed to work autonomously and are generally made of earth-filled tires, utilising thermal mass construction to naturally regulate indoor temperature. They also usually have their own special natural ventilation system. These structures are built to utilize the available local resources, especially solar energy by means of windows strategically placed on the sunny side to bring in light and heat; contingent on a horseshoe-shape to maximize natural light and solar gains during winters; thick outer walls for insulation against summer heat; honeycombs of recycled cans cemented together for more insulation, and incorporation of earth and adobe. These kind of buildings took shape in the 1970's. Earthship Biotecture's founder, Mike Reynolds, created a company to specialize in building these sustainable structurres with the importance for them to be independent from the 'grid' so that they are less susceptible to natural disasters and free from electrical and water lines. Because of the earth filled tire construction, Earthships have great load-bearing capacity and have an increased resistance to fire. Earthships can be found in every state and are appearing in countries like Europe. Earthship Biotecture is located in the Greater World Community which is a housing development in Taos, New Mexico compiled together of strictly earthship homes. Officially a legal subdivision in 1998 - it was started in order to create an ideal condition from where a sustainable community could grow and flourish.
