The snowy peaks of the New Mexico Rockies provide the backdrop for Angel Fire, a resort town abounding with outdoor activities. Visit an Angel Fire cabin at any time of the year, and you’ll find that refreshing mountain getaway you’ve been craving.
This ski hub sits about 24 miles east of Taos, another popular New Mexico destination. An Angel Fire cabin is the ski vacation of choice for many Texans and others who’d rather not make the long trek up to Colorado. It’s about a 90-minute journey south to Santa Fe, for anyone eager to experience the city’s abundance of art galleries and restaurants.
Angel Fire’s ski slopes and terrain parks draw tons of winter sports enthusiasts each season. Grab your skis or board (or even your sled) and take advantage of Angel Fire’s fresh powder. In the summer, there’s plenty to explore, including a mountain bike park, a zip line, and a multitude of hiking trails. Head up the road to Eagle Nest Lake for the opportunity to catch some salmon or trout to grill up at your vacation rental. In the fall, the mountainside turns golden with aspen leaves, though photo-worthy vignettes abound in Angel Fire no matter the season.
Whether you’re staying in an Angel Fire cabin during ski season or summer, prepare to be charmed by this town’s mountain beauty. Your New Mexico getaway is waiting!
