Im from austin texas where the low temp in the winter is not even below 30 sometimes. The first mountain I have ever skied was Taos a old run down ski resort. Never would I ever look at skiing the same. I have been back to Taos 8 times never going any where else. Its the friendly atitude and the hard terrain that keeps me here. Skiing once a year is terrible and wish I could do something about it. Over my bed there is a taos poster that i wake up to every morning and go to bed every night and I dream that someday maybe I will get to call a ski resort home.
