The Restaurant
The Blonde Bear Tavern provides a welcoming, sophisticated, and warm oasis from the blistery weather outside. The restaurant is wrapped with extraordinary photographs of Taos Ski Valley that watch over diners at their candle-lit tables.

The Food
We offer refined European alpine cuisine with a devotion to seasonality and local ingredients. Our staff embodies northern New Mexico’s warm hospitality: expert service with a casual approach.

The Wine
We have meticulously crafted our wine list to compliment the menu, featuring wines from France, Italy, Austria, and the United States. Emerging styles mingle effortlessly with classics, making The Blonde Bear Tavern an essential wine destination where presentation and service make our wine program equally accessible to everyone, from casual aficionados to the most knowledgeable collectors.

Après Ski
We offer ski in / ski out cocktails – join us after a day of skiing, or pop in for a snack and a glass of wine or signature cocktail before the day's last run.

Café Naranja at the Edelweiss
Café Naranja is Taos Ski Valley’s most popular breakfast stop. Enjoy freshly-baked pastries, fresh squeezed orange juice, a full espresso bar, and breakfast specialties like our Breakfast Burrito and Huevos Rancheros – both smothered with our famous New Mexican red or green chile sauce. It's a perfect beginning to a vigorous day on the slopes.
Open daily from 7:30am through mid-morning (winter ski season). Open from 8am to 1pm for breakfast and lunch each Friday through Monday during the summer (Memorial Day to late September).
