Chalet Swiss, an original Taos Ski Valley landmark was built by Walter Widmer who came to Taos from Switzerland as a young man in the 60′s. As a result, this inviting chalet comes equipped with the ambiance of a Swiss ski chalet and was one of the first large chalets to be built in the early days in the history of this remarkable ski basin. Mr. Widmer still resides in Switzerland and his nieces and nephews still come to Taos to ski.
This well maintained 3 story chalet has the flexibility of being rented as one large 5 to 6 bedroom 3 bathroom home or as a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom, 3 bedroom 2 bathroom, 2 bedroom 1 bathroom or a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom property enabling smaller groups to enjoy the benefits of this charming historic vacation lodge.
Renting it as a 3 bedroom combines the top floor and the bottom floor leaving the middle floor 2 bedroom 1 bathroom + 2nd kitchen locked.
Guests enjoy the added amenity of flat screen satellite TV and Wi-Fi high speed internet access.
An easy 3 minute walk to lifts, shops and eateries means you never have to get in your car until it’s time to go home.
The King or 2 Twins allow for flexible sleeping for couples or singles. Please contact the caretaker well before arrival to request Twins.
If you want to feel like you are skiing the Swiss Alps, come to Walter Widmer’s “Chalet Swiss” and view across the village valley to Al’s Run and Kachina Peak. Awesome!
