There are two kinds of taiga biomes; arctic/antarctic taiga and alpine taiga. The one we talked about above is the arctic/antarctic taiga. However, alpine taiga is different; it is warmer and is located in northern Alaska, western USA, western Latin America, northwestern Scandinavia, and central Asia (as shown below).
