The arid climate means that the snow is light and fluffy while the sunlight makes the snow glisten and sparkle like enchanting snow diamonds. It is a beautiful time to get outside and explore the wide open spaces of New Mexico on skis, snowshoes, or by foot. Read about snowshoeing adventures by Daniel Gibson in our new column Beyond the Itinerary. It might just entice you to give snowshoeing a try! Learn the story behind one of our Inspired Partners, Taos Mountain Outfitters, in our new Meet the Makers + Inspired Partners series.

An Interview By Lewis Bailey, Inspired Taos Guide
The go-to spot for outdoor gear and apparel in Taos In business since 1969, with the current owners since 2016 Located on the Taos Plaza At Heritage Inspirations, we partner with Taos Mountain Outfitters to rent equipment for the Taos Backcountry Snowshoeing Tour and our Taos Overnight Backpacking Tour, but we love to shop there for a lot of our personal gear as well.
It's so important to shop local!

Our CEO, Angelisa, was invited to attend Arival 360, a domestic and global travel conference focused on creating amazing in-destination travel experiences. The conference was held in San Diego, California last week and Angelisa was a featured speaker for their DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) track which was the theme for the 2022 conference.

Heritage Inspirations is a leader in the travel industry for creating immersive and authentic experiences. Angelisa was honored to share the HI approach with a dynamic group of peers as they tackled discussions about why DEI matters in travel. This theme is especially relevant in New Mexico due to our rich cultural background.

At HI we are committed to cultivating meaningful and diverse relationships as a part of our tour development. Storytelling is the forefront of what connects us to the authenticity of a region and invigorates opportunities to enrich the voice of our New Mexico cultures and communities. Inspired guides learn from our community partners and integrate a deep layer of our living heritage and communities that make up the cultural diversity of New Mexico into each of our tours. Our mission is to weave a colorful tapestry throughout our tours that connects our guests to the rich stories of New Mexico that inspire and peak curiosity in each of our experience tour pillars. (Adventure, Immerse, EBike, Glamp, Wellness, Family)

This quote written by a dear colleague and peer, Sophia Hyder Hock, inspires much of HI tour development strategy.

 “Culture makes us who we are. Perception defines how we act. Knowledge is power.”

Angelisa stayed at The Pearl Hotel, which is part of the Casetta Group. They are currently building the Hotel Willa in Taos which is scheduled to open by the end of 2022 offering an exciting new place for guests to stay.

Angelisa was able to fly TaosAir from Carlsbad (near San Diego) directly to Taos! Angelisa explains,

“This is a perfect way to start your Taos Travels with us if you are traveling from Austin, Dallas, Los Angeles or Carlsbad. Skip the TSA, enjoy B Corp snacks and drinks on the plane and one of the most profound views of the Rio Grande Valley you could ask for upon arrival to Taos!”
We are excited to partner with TaosAir. The crew on TaosAir flight were so impressed with Heritage Inspirations Tours they shared our story over the mic with everyone! We are in the design stage of creating comprehensive travel packages with TaosAir from each of these destinations. Stay tuned for updates.
