With a strong winter season behind it, Angel Fire Resort takes a short breather before putting on its warm-weather outfit.
Tops among summer activities at the northern New Mexico resort is the mountaintop ziplines. Now in its second season, the Zipline Adventure Tour connects six ziplines of varying lengths and descents for thrill-seekers who venture to the 10,600 summit area. Ziplines range from a modest 100-foot introductory ride to a 1,600-foot cable that soars 200 feet above the ground. The tour also includes two side-by-side ziplines.
Cost begins at $105 per rider, who must be between 90 and 270 pounds, regardless of age. The ziplines open on May 17. More information.
Angel Fire crews have expanded the resort’s mountain biking park, with 50 miles of new and improved trails for riders of all abilities. New this season is the Enduro Trails on the backside, accessible by chairlift.
Daily passes start at just $30 and a Summer Gravity Pass for $250, which allows unlimited lift access all summer long. The Bike Park also offers full rentals and lessons for those trying out the sport for the first time. More information.
Angel Fire’s 18-hole golf course opens May 10, with improvements to the area around the 10th green and the driving range. Greens fees start at $59, including a cart.
The all-season resort also boasts tennis courts, stocked fishing lakes, high-altitude hiking trails, Frisbee golf course, outdoor movie nights and fine dining.
