The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Get Adrenaline and Culture in Taos


4. Insider’s Tip

Hot springs make for a unique après-ski treatment.  

For après-ski treatments or a muscle-soothing soak, you could dip into the mineral pools ($40 for 50 minutes) at Ojo Caliente, a 45-minute drive from town, or you could have a rustic soak outdoors for free. If you’re game, join the locals at the Manby Hot Springs (a.k.a "Stagecoach Hot Springs") next to the Rio Grande. To get there, drive northwest on Highway 64 until you see a sign for Tune Drive, then turn right and follow that for about four miles until you see a parking area. The views alone are worth the detour.
