Taos Ski Valley to host World Championship Ski Tour

New Mexico

TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Taos Ski Valley will hold Pro Ski Tour Championships for the first time.

Pro and Olympic athletes from around the world will kick off the tour in Colorado and continue on across the U.S. They will rack up points for a shot at being one of the 50 to compete in Taos for the grand prize of $100,000.

The tour in Taos will feature three days of dual-style racing and be nationally televised.

“Taos will truly be on the world’s stage, as will New Mexico. We can’t wait to work closely with Taos and the state to bring this historic event, once again revitalize the resurgence of the event to the great state of New Mexico and great ski valley of Taos,” World Pro Ski Tour CEO Jon Franklin said.

The championship will take place from April 10 to April 12.
