Jean Mayer arrived in Taos Ski Valley over fifty years ago with a passion for skiing and a dream to create a sanctuary for like-minded ski lovers. With his family, he began building the hotel in 1960. Its sturdy log construction mirrors European Alpine traditions and is located right at the base of Al's Run and the main chairlift. Today it is the only hotel in Taos Ski Valley still offering the traditional, all-inclusive Ski Week – a full week of immersion into the passion of skiing with every need supplied by a well-trained staff of skiing professionals.
At the Hotel St. Bernard we continually evolve while keeping an eye on the past. The St. Bernard has stood the test of time since 1960, nestled on the ski slopes it is a perennial favorite. We maintain an historic appeal but we constantly seek improvement to offer a distinctive flair to our guests.
The hotel has 28 lodge-style rooms, a beautiful communal dining room with a superbly stocked bar, a spa and work out room, and ski storage lockers. Enjoy lunch outside on the deck - location, location, location! The deck is located on the ski slope! Enjoy a taste of New Mexico with our famous green-chile cheeseburger, other lunchtime treats, drinks and more!
The Hotel St. Bernard Ski Week includes 7 nights in hotel room (double occupancy), 6 morning ski lessons, 6 days lift tickets, and three meals a day in the Hotel dining room.
The world-famous Ski School, ranked Number 1 in the country, is one of the reasons guests keep coming back to Taos Ski Valley. Under the technical direction of your host, Jean Mayer, and its dedicated instructors, it will challenge and stimulate you to become a big mountain skier, at any level!
Jean Mayer and Aspen ski legend Weems Westfeldt discuss Ski Weeks, and Taos Ski Valley's friendly ski instructors.
Begin your Ski Week with dinner for the entire family, children included, on Saturday evening at 6:30 pm. Starting on Sunday evening, the adults will continue with nightly gourmet dinners and the children will begin their special Kid's Club program with dinner each night at 5:30 pm, followed by supervised activities at the Hotel during the adult dinnertime.
