Driving to Taos Ski Valley and The Austing Haus
The drive takes about 25 minutes. Head north on the main road out of town, and take a right onto 150 at the traffic lights. This road continues, passing through the cute little town of Arroyo Seco, and finishes at Taos Ski Valley. The drive up to the ski area is very easy as the road meanders through the valley with no steep pitches. The road is very well ploughed so it almost never closes and is easy negotiated in a 2WD car. The Austing Haus is located in the Village of Amizette at 1282 State Highway 150, Taos Ski Valley, NM 87525. In the map to your right you will see the Amizette area on the lower right hand side. The Austing Haus is marked at #27 on the map. Amizette is 7 miles from the base of the ski valley road or 9 miles from the Village of Arroyo Seco.
To get to the Resort you need to drive 1 mile further from the Austing Haus. There are lots of car parks all named after animals. These are serviced by frequent shuttle trucks to get you directly to the base areas. If you want to park closer to the Resort Base area you can pay for premium parking.
