Just heard yesterday that Taos has 102" base. Anybody been there in the last couple od days?
If its correct, I may take a couple days off and go down to rip with a few friends...
I asked your question of a friend who skis Taos every weekend. He's a good skier, so I trust what he says...

Numbers are just numbers, but the coverage is good and the skiing's good considering it hasn't snowed in almost a week (and none forecast through the weeekend).
I skied with (names removed to protect the guilty) on Sat/Sun, and there were still some stashes of fresh - particulary off of
Kachina Peak - but spring break for Texans this week, hungry locals, warm temps and sun are taking their toll. I will say that the base is great, and though the chutes are going to get a bit bumped up (depending on how hard they are to got to), the skiing's going to be pretty dam' good.
Depending on what you like, you can hike/traverse far and seek shade, or just hammer the bumps, but Taos is as good as it's been in the last few years. If you like Kachina Peak and/or bumps, it's prime. Pretty much all the steeps are open with good coverage.

Have fun if you go.
