Here at Taos Ski Valley, we know that an appreciation for the mountains runs deeper than skiing and riding.
That’s why we are committed to protecting our local environment by practicing environmentally friendly habits throughout all areas of the resort. Taos Ski Valley is the first major ski resort to become a certified B Corp. This certification helps ensure that Taos Ski Valley meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, sustainability, public transparency and legal accountability. Becoming a B Corp also means that our long-held values of inclusion, sustainability, and respect for all are validated. By practicing reverence for our local environment, we hope to promote a more resilient and robust community that celebrates the region’s rich, diverse culture.
