Winter made a welcomed return, dropping 14 inches of fresh snow and very cold temperatures at Angel Fire Resort, located in the Southern Rockies of New Mexico. The resort has been taking advantage of the colder temperatures throughout the past six weeks, making snow in anticipation of this year’s opening, set for this Friday, December 14. The additional natural and man-made snow has allowed the resort to open more trails.

“We’ve been able to keep the systems running throughout the night since October 31 and our crews are working consistently to get as much out of the cold temperatures as possible,” said Jamie Seifert, mountain operations manager, Angel Fire Resort. “Clearly the more natural snow we can add in is great, but in the meantime, it's our job to get the mountain ready, so we are focusing our efforts on snowmaking and getting our Winter Zipline ready for this season.”
The resort will be opening 3.5 miles of trails for skiers and boarders, and the Nordic Center, as well as their 4-segment Winter Zipline Tour.
Beginner skiing/snowboarding trails, the bunny hill and the Angel Fire Ski School will all be open starting December 14, creating a great landscape for those just learning the sport.
The resort has also decided to keep the brand new multi-station Zipline Tour at the summit of the Angel Fire Resort ski mountain open for the winter. The Angel Fire Zipline Adventure Tour is one of the highest elevation zipline tours in the United States and one of the only ones open during the winter ski season. It’s also a first for the state of New Mexico. The resort opened the zipline in July and due to its growing popularity, officials have decided to keep it open, weather contingent, this winter. The 4-segment tour gives adrenaline seekers an extra kick as they fly high above the snowy forest floor as they traverse from peak to peak. Reservations for the popular attraction are encouraged.

For its second year, the resort will also host a state-of-the-art Nordic Center. The Nordic Center offers the best in cross-country skiing and snowshoeing with over 15 kms of groomed trails. The Nordic Center is located at the $16 million Angel Fire Resort Country Club, creating a one-of-a-kind Nordic experience in northern New Mexico. This year the resort will offer a shuttle service from the Lodge to the Nordic Center. The Nordic Center will also sell a “Fitness Pass” which will include a day pass for Nordic Skiing, full use of the Country Club’s modern workout facilities and yoga room, indoor swimming pool and locker room facilities.
Angel Fire continues to focus on being the most family friendly resort in the Rockies by offering extensive beginner runs, development terrain parks, a sledding hill, and day and night snow tubing on the Polar Coaster tubing hill complete with a 900’ moving carpet.
