With a Purpose like Enjoy. Protect. Give. it’s no wonder we’ve built an incredible team living our values both personally and professionally, each and every day. Our culture and heritage have always set us apart. So as we grow better, not bigger; we’re letting our values guide us. As the world’s first and only B Corp™ ski resort, we use our business as a force for good. We invite you to join us!
We are located in the beautiful Northern New Mexico, where the Rockies begin!
About Taos Ski Valley
We are the world's first and only Certified B Corp Ski Resort! Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. When we became the world’s first B Corp™ ski resort, we committed ourselves to use our business as a force for good, for all.
Becoming a B Corporation means that Taos Ski Valley’s long-held values of inclusion, sustainability, and respect for all are validated. This is highlighted by the following quote from a staff member responding to a recent employee survey, "I've been in other workplaces where I didn't feel I had the freedom to be who I am. But I feel very happy to be at [Taos Ski Valley] where individualism is both celebrated and respected, and it is something that brings people in our workplace together."
We have started on a journey towards a better future, and we've only just begun. Our journey consists of 101+ ways we're improving ourselves, our environment and our community; one turn at a time!
The Employee Experience
What is it like working for us?
In the past few years, we have taken intentional action to be more inclusive for our diverse community of employees, visitors, and neighbors. We value diversity because we value all people. We also know that shared perspectives from people with different lived experiences lead to new and better ways of acting for the common good. We are intentional about increasing the diversity of our staff and promoting equity in the outdoor recreation industry because doing so is right, and because it allows for richer experiences for staff and guests, as well as a greater connection to each other and this special place where we work.
