The Blake

Your alpine home in the heart of Taos

The Blake at Taos Ski Valley is at the heart of the resort’s renaissance connecting the iconic mountain with a vibrant cultural journey. The Blake embodies a soulful tapestry that is uniquely Northern New Mexican. Woven into The Blake experience are the wild elements of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a confluence of cultures a thousand years in the making and an independent streak that belies Taos’s true sense. From big-mountain adventure steps from the door, to tiny rituals that sear the story of our alpine retreat in the hearts and minds of the guests we welcome year-round, this is more than a place to stay.

Magic in the air, powder on the slopes, New Mexican spirit abounds.

What it's like

The Blake is an 80-room alpine guesthouse adjacent to Lift 1 that’s designed to deliver mountainside adventures, whether you’re skiing, hiking, shopping or strolling. Guest-service "hausmeisters" are on call to attend to every detail, while well-appointed rooms and sophisticated suites lull the adventurous into welcomed relaxation. 

Independent spirit

At The Blake, an eclectic cultural context and delightfully unexpected rituals flavor each moment with deep soulfulness and connection to people and place. Taos features a unique blend of Native American history and European mountain charm that culminates in an exquisite art around the village. Take an art tour with The Blake's hausmeister for a surprising cultural adventure. Every nook and cranny of The Blake celebrates Taos's unique cultural heritage, making an unforgettable stay. 

Small touches

The Blake is serious about sustainability -- it's a LEED Silver certified hotel. From the big things like geothermal heating and cooling, to the delightful amenities like souvenir water bottles you can fill from the hallway filtered water stations, this hotel is invested in the future. These aspects are just some of the many examples that showcase the B Corp ethos of Taos Ski Valley.  

Eat and drink

Centered around a communal fireplace, the intimate dining room at 192 Blake radiates international flare—rustic European alpine architecture folded into colorful New Mexican design. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Before and after outdoor adventure, this is your space to connect while savoring shareable dishes and inspired wines. Enjoy eclectic shared plates, flatbreads, pizzas, entrees & sweets. Indulge in carefully curated wines & signature après-ski cocktails. Traveling with a group? There's private dining available for groups up to 24.

And more

At 9,120 feet, Taos Ski Valley raises the bar for all group gatherings. The Blake is a stunning wedding venue:  In summer, this verdant sanctuary is part playground and all adventure. Come winter, Taos provides a breath-taking backdrop of snowy peaks. But The Blake is so much more than wanderlust weddings -- groups of all kinds will find just what they need, and so much more than they ever expected. The Lakefork Room is a high-tech executive conference space which overlooks a river and the Resort Center offers slope-side flexible meeting space.
