Taos Ski Valley Community
GaiaQuest’s founders have had a longstanding interest and involvement with the Taos Ski Valley community, its master planning and related community development initiatives. GaiaQuest founders have done so with the hope that this unique mountain community will evolve into a demonstration wilderness eco-resort community offering the most exciting sustainable alpine resort lifestyle available anywhere.
As part of an effort to help enhance and grow year-round business and prosperity for Taos Ski Valley, GaiaQuest promoted an Alpine Center concept seamlessly integrated into a comprehensive alpine eco-resort community demonstration project. GaiaQuest also volunteered aspects of an overall master plan for the Kachina basin to help promote a regeneratively sustainable solution for all remaining undeveloped property in that area. This community planning initiative included boutique hotel facilities, spa facilities with health bar, fitness/training center, conference facilities, restaurants, cafes, beverage bars, convenience market, onsite demonstration greenhouses, medicinal plant distillery, various commercial uses, year-round recreation amenities, engaging education & recreation programs for all ages, arts and entertainment programs, private residence club, nature center, glamping (glamorous camping) facilities, wilderness camping and more. Master planned as a pedestrian oriented community, all community facilities, businesses and homes were conceived to be conveniently interconnected by beautiful parks and trails.
GaiaQuest’s Kachina Mountain Lodge (KML) project in Kachina represents one introductory master planned element that has been successfully approved and launched as a regeneratively sustainable Alpine Permaculture demonstration project. KML’s beautiful mountain wilderness homesites offer a secure investment in the most exiting alpine eco-community available today. This is a place where families can enjoy the life they have always wanted in an affordable luxury Rocky Mountain home that a family can treasure for generations!
Building on the important synergistic relationship between Taos Ski Valley and Taos, GaiaQuest is also actively pursuing important projects and resources for Taos Ski Valley that need to be located nearby in Taos, such as work force housing and year round localized food production.
