Taos Ski Valley, like Aspen and Telluride, had humble beginnings as a mining village with gold, copper, and timber. Orville E. Pattison acquired much of the land post-World War II, and developer Ernie Blake's vision in the 1950s fueled growth, introducing lifts like Al’s Run (Lift One) by 1957. The ski destination evolved from mining roots to a renowned skiing spot.
