Thank you Martha Stewart, We love Taos too!

I received my copy of the January edition for Martha Stewart Living magazine a few weeks ago but just had a chance to peruse this morning.  Paging through the stories about New Year's resolutions, cooking with citrus, organizing, winter gardening and the contents of Martha's makeup bag, I found an article describing the tiny ski town of Woodstock, Vermont, pop. 900.  Truly beautiful.  Imagine my delight when, at the end of the piece, there was a sidebar entitled:                                                              

"you'll also like... Here are four more small-sized laid back, well rounded ski towns that will appeal to every member (skiing or otherwise) of your travel party.

Where  Taos, New Mexico
Why      Two words:  perfect weather.  Taos gets an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, and if you go in spring, chances are high that you'll find yourself skiing in a light jacket under bright blue skies."

Other towns listed are Lake Placid, New York;  Bend, Oregon and Truckee, California.  (And my totally biased view is that the attributes they assign to these three towns are also here in Taos).

Taos Ski Valley is a must for both experienced and beginning skiers.  Also try Sipapu, Red River and Angel Fire resorts. We are going cross country skiing next week at Enchanted Forest ...and they have 5k of dog trails so Mosey can come too.  Enchanted Forest also has over 15km of exclusive snowshoeing trails in addition to their 30-plus km of cross country ski trails which are snowshoe friendly.   We plan to spend a lot of time this winter and spring at the ski resorts.  You should come visit Taos and join us!  Martha would....
