About The Bavarian
The Bavarian Lodge and Restaurant is located about 30 minutes above the ancient, multicultural town of Taos (http://www.taosguide.com) and is co owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Thomas and Jamie Shultze. The Bavarian Lodge will offer high alpine wilderness living and world-class skiing in extreme comfort at the end of a 4-wheel drive mountain road. In summer, a resident at the Bavarian can enjoy nature hikes among wildflowers and later mushrooms to alpine lakes, rafting the Rio Grande, great trout fishing, and rock climbing.

Taos Ski Valley lies within the Kit Carson National Forest. The Bavarian (elevation 10,200ft) is at the top of the valley, facing Kachina Mountain. Only great ski terrain and the pristine Wheeler Peek Wilderness Area lay beyond the Bavarian.

About Taos Ski Valley (http://www.skitaos.org)
Taos Ski Valley is known for extremely dry powder, some of the world’s finest lift-accessible steeps, average snowfalls in excess of 300+ inches per season and abundant sunshine of the Southern Rockies, with 300+ days of annual sunshine. The skiing is consistently ranked amongst the nation’s top resorts. The ski school, dubbed “mythic” by MSNBC, is widely acclaimed as among the best in the world. It is often the case that lift lines are nonexistent.
