Taos Ski Valley Resort in New Mexico Podcast

The next stop on our virtual adventure was in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico to visit David Norden, the CEO of Taos Ski Valley.

We caught up with David and learned about what makes Taos a unique ski resort and what it means to be a B-Corp ski resort. We were delighted to learn about the initiatives that Taos is leading to be a great organization for its staff, the environment, and for the skiers and snowboarders.

Taos is also doing a lot of work with their ski school to help the beginners get into the sport and enjoy their time on the mountain as much as possible.
