A Full Service Lodge with a Passion for Skiing and Service

For 40 years, the original Hotel Edelweiss was a fixture in Taos Ski Valley offering visitors the traditional European-style Ski Week vacations.  After the original owner, Dadou Mayer retired as an innkeeper to dedicate his time to teaching skiing full time, the Hotel Edelweiss changed hands a couple of times before a tragic chimney fire on closing day one year led to its eventual demise.  In 2005 the new and improved The Edelweiss Lodge & Spa was opened in the same central location in the Taos Ski Valley resort’s main base area next to Strawberry Hill. The new lodge offers visitors up-scale vacation rentals (condominiums) and combines the same friendly atmosphere originally created by Dadou Mayer, with a new level of unpretentious luxury and a renewed commitment to personal service.

Taos Ski Valley has always been famous for its short lift lines, great snow, world-class ski schools, and challenging terrain. Now the Edelweiss offers visitors the ultimate ski-in/ski-out facility with an ideal location in the heart of the base area near the Children’s Ski School and the Ernie Blake Ski School, and just feet from the slopes. Our underground parking facility, personal boot lockers with dryers, complementary ski valet service, and an on-site full-service ski shop, let you enjoy more time on your skis and less time carrying them.  A day of skiing and snowboarding has never been so easy for the whole family to enjoy.

Personal Service Sets Us Apart

Our staff love the mountain and love skiing; that is why we are here!  We will be happy to help navigate and decipher the array of ski lessons offered by Taos Ski Valley’s first rate ski schools, find a great restaurant serving the best New Mexican green chili, or find that hidden chute not shown on the resort’s trail maps.  Experienced therapists are on hand at the Edelweiss’ first class day spa offering a range of massage treatments as well as facials, body scrubs treatments as well as private and group yoga classes.  The on site Alpine Xtreme Ski Shop will gladly arrange for your rental and/or demo needs, the Café Naranja and The Blonde Bear Tavern consistently provide the quality food and first class service to area diners.

Come see what makes the Edelweiss Lodge and Spa, truly “The Peak of Luxury in Taos Ski Valley”.
