If you want to get away, Angel Fire is a great place to play. Pack large, bring lots of gear, and don’t forget the toys.

Angel Fire is a tranquil, year-round resort smack dab in the middle of wooded wilderness and a high mountain valley. The Wheeler Peak range, New Mexico’s highest, is outside your front door. And of course, we all feel it’s one of the nicest places on the planet. Angel Fire’s #1 industry is tourism, with our tranquil mountain community attracting thousands year round. Winter brings snow sport fans to have fun skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling or sledding, while our cool summers attract golfers, fishermen (and fisherwomen), hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, 4-wheelers, and families just wanting to get away from the heat and hectic pace of city life. If you’re talking pure Angel Fire, you’re talking pure moments.
