TAOS SKI VALLEY, NM—Each weekend in the summer, families and adventure-seekers can enjoy live music, scenic chairlift rides and a cool mountain escape from the heat at Taos Ski Valley’s (TSV’s) new Saturday Summer Music Series, at no charge. Situated at 9,200 feet in the Northern New Mexico town of Taos Ski Valley, this series of events celebrates summer and the many various styles of music.
Every Saturday through Aug. 30, TSV presents a unique variety of live music by up-and-coming musical artists. Highlights include Austin, Texas based blues guitarist Cody Jasper; Americana Indie folk music by The Gleewood Band; Afrobeat Cumbias music by Radio La Chusma; Austin singer/songwriter Dana Falconberry’s vocal harmonies mixed with cello and banjo; and local favorite, Michael Hearne’s Mini Barn Dance.
Music lovers can bring their own blankets and enjoy the music from 3-6 p.m. at the TSV Resort Center stage. Kids will enjoy the TSV playground with hula hoops and complementary popcorn, volleyball, horseshoes, and disc golf. TSV’s new Pioneer Bike Park will also be available – a lift-served, beginner’s mountain bike area for downhill biking on easier terrain.
Many summer adventures beckon at TSV – including horseback riding in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, mountain biking, hiking, hot air balloon rides, fishing in mountain-fed streams, and rafting the Rio Grande. Because of its high elevation, TSV’s summer temperatures average a cool 78 degrees.
One of the favorite summer events at TSV is the 4th of July festivities – beginning with a parade featuring hilarious floats created by locals, the 13th Annual Rubber Duck Race, followed by an afternoon of live music.
While in TSV, visitors can hike, bike, play, and stay at Alpine Village Suites located just steps from the concert venue and the summer chairlift. All guests of the Alpine Village Suites have complementary use of outdoor hot tub and sauna, continental breakfast, complementary use of mountain bikes and fishing rods, unlimited disc golf, and access to picnic tables and barbecue grills. Summer lodging specials are available at alpine-suites.com or by calling 800-576-2666.
Less than half an hour south of TSV, the famous art colony of Taos has many notable galleries, art events, shops, and restaurants. Visit taos.org for a schedule of events.
