Since hedge-fund manager Louis Bacon bought Taos Ski Valley in 2013, skiers and riders who favor the New Mexico resort have seen something new each season: infrastructure, chairlifts, overnight accommodations, even paved parking lots, and all-mountain cell service.

Now, in his ninth season of ownership, Bacon and his team are laying out the next generation of improvements all around the 1,300-acre mountain that has always been know for steep and deep terrain, unpretentious atmosphere, and a distinctly European flair.

The proposed 2021 Master Plan was unveiled recently as resort management begins to navigate the approval process through Carson National Forest, on which most of Taos Ski Valley sits. Here are some of the highlights:

All these plans are tentative, pending consensus from the U.S. Forest Service, neighboring Taos Pueblo, and the skiing and riding public. TSV hopes to begin work next summer.
