Located at the base of Mt. Wheeler, the tallest peak in New Mexico at 13,161 feet, Angel Fire Ski Area gets plenty of snow each winter. The mountain boasts 40 miles of new and improved trails for skiers at all levels. This is one of the largest lift-access mountains in North America. Maximum elevation is 10,650 feet with a drop of roughly 2,000 feet. However, visitors can choose between skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, tubing, Nordic skiing, sleigh rides, snow blades, ice fishing and more. The resort offers gear rental, ski and snowboarding schools, great terrain parks, night skiing, and a Nordic park.

In the spring, summer and fall, the resort offers just as much fun with mountain biking, ATV tours, rafting, horseback riding, rock climbing, disc golf, scenic chairlift rides, wildlife tours and hiking. The Angel Fire Resort Golf Course and Country Club, offers a challenging 18-hole course that winds through two canyons filled with aspens that murmur in the summer breeze. If that isn’t enough, try the high altitude zipline — a spectacular three-hour tour starting at the 10,600 feet at the summit of the Angel Fire ski mountain.

Angel Fire Resort has spacious rooms and suites, and there are also plenty of vacation rental condos and homes located within two to three blocks of the slopes. There are plenty of places to quench your thirst and your appetite at Angel Fire, including Elements, with it fabulous view of the mountain. The resort also offers a gift shop, a fitness center, a hot tub and pool, pet-friendly rooms and just in case you actually have to call into the office, a business center.
