Taos is just another hour. One annoying factor for both Santa Fe and Taos (but not Angel Fire) is that the ski areas are in Forest Service land, so you have a half hour or so drive from lodging to the ski area, there's no ski in / ski out lodging.

Taos was one of the last holdouts on the no boarding thing, but thankfully Grumpy Old Man Taos kicked the bucket and his family had some common sense. There's a ton of moguls up there, which I never enjoyed on a board, but love on skis.

Food in Santa Fe is better than Taos or Angel Fire (and certainly better than Wolf Creek) for what that's worth. If going with a family or spouse, Santa Fe certainly has the best amenities, but if you're actually going for the skiing, Taos and Wolf Creek would be at the top of my list.
