Northside Ranch New Mexico: A true mountain property located in one of New Mexico’s most iconic valleys, Northside Ranch is a treasure chest of recreational opportunities. Richly forested, it occupies 1227 deeded acres directly adjacent to the legendary Taos Ski Valley Resort and is perfectly situated to supplement the recreational amenities of the existing resort. Visionary owners with an eye for environmentally-friendly development could hardly imagine a better canvas upon which to create a masterpiece than Northside Ranch.
Ranging in elevations from 10,000 feet to 12,630 feet above the summit of Frazer Mountain, Northside Ranch occupies classic subalpine and alpine life zones. The subalpine is represented by an abundance of dark timber forest comprised of Engelmann spruce, Douglas fir, blue spruce and corkbark fir. Groves of aspen appear here and there and create a blaze of color in the fall. A summer wildflower explosion in the alpine zone of blue columbine, paintbrush, sky pilots and bluebells easily qualifies Northside Ranch as one of New Mexico’s finest examples of a healthy ecosystem.
