Taos Ski Valley announced Wednesday (Dec. 11) the resort will be hosting the 2020 World Pro Ski Tour World Championships. 

The World Championships is a nationally televised event which brings the top pro skiers from around the globe for two days starting April 10, 2020.                    

“Taos Ski Valley is thrilled to welcome the world’s best skiers to the mountain this spring,” said David Norden, CEO of Taos Ski Valley in a press release. “We’ve always had the terrain to host a major event like this, and now through years of careful investment we have the infrastructure, lodging, and facilities to roll out the red carpet to this world-famous group of Olympic medalists and professionals.”

The event offers up a $100,000 top prize and is expected to draw about 50 professional skiers, according to information from Taos Ski Valley.

Norden made the announcement in Santa Fe alongside Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham who expressed the opportunities for New Mexico tourism from the event. 

“We’re taking important steps forward in developing a robust outdoor recreation economy and boosting New Mexico’s tourism industry,” Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham said. “Taos Ski Valley is demonstrating how businesses can serve local communities. I am so proud of this selection and eager to watch Taos Ski Valley represent our great state on a national stage.”

Due to the event, passholders at Taos SKi Valley will be able to enjoy the mountain until April 12, as the company usually ends the season in the beginning of April. 

The event is open to the public and will feature Olympic, NCAA and professional skiers for spectators to witness.
