    I have only been here in he summer to ride the bike park and it was pretty good. The staff on the mountain is terrible, very smug, lazy, and condescending. There is nothing around the town other than the resort so dont expect there to be anything to do after riding. Fun to ride but nothing spectacular

    Angel Fire is great because of its seclusion and variety of trails for all skill levels. It's not a happening town, but the resort itself is nice and well maintained. Don't expect Vail quality, but do expect shorter wait times, smaller crowds(minus spring break), and cheaper lift tickets. I'd say Angel Fire's difficulty really appeals to people like me who can only ski once a year. The greens are nice, gentle, and have length (The longest trails in the park are greens). Most all the blues are also quite manageable. I'd put them in line with...Read More

    Nothing terrible, nothing to write home about. If you're from central or northern NM proper why would ever go when you could go to Taos, Santa Fe which are more up to date, or Durango which is a real ski resort. Angel Fire's "hotel" a bit tired & in serious need of a renovation. Their daycare nearly put me through top security clearance before I could drop my toddler off there. Didn't have this problem w/Santa Fe or Durango. There are any hardly shops outside of the resort, no night life, not even a dollar store. It's a whole lot of nothing...Read More

    You'll never find a better place than here. The cabins in the woods and lasting sunshine make me excited. I love here.

    For the first time this year we did the awesome excursion of Zip-lining at Angel Fire! Our two guides were AMAZING and made us feel so relaxed and safe. We had an awesome time on each of the runs and thought it was well worth the expense. However, I would like to give a huge word of CAUTION about using the photographer services that photograph your tour. Atmosphere Photos owner and employees were rude and very hard to work with. They claim to photograph your entire experience which we found out after buying the CD was FALSE. We realized after...Read More

Most all the blues are also quite manageable. I'd put them in line with Breckenridge's Peak 7. As far as the ski school, regardless where you go, it's always so hit and miss. Most of my ski knowledge came from somebody else not affiliated with a resort. The only thing I remember from ski school is how to get on and off the lift. Pizza and french frying just doesn't really work...

It's a whole lot of nothing but folks from TX or Oklahoma, not even folks from NM seem to come here. Not that there's anything wrong w/people from TX or OK, but would be nice to meet folks from other places. I tried it, didn't love it, was just "meh." Don't feel the need to go again. However, not bad skiing & cheap.

For the first time this year we did the awesome excursion of Zip-lining at Angel Fire! Our two guides were AMAZING and made us feel so relaxed and safe. We had an awesome time on each of the runs and thought it was well worth the expense. However, I would like to give a huge word of CAUTION about using the photographer services that photograph your tour. Atmosphere Photos owner and employees were rude and very hard to work with. They claim to photograph your entire experience which we found out after buying the CD was FALSE. We realized after returning home and paying full price for the services that some of the photos from the "best" leg (the shots they actually use as their advertising photos) were missing of our group which was very disappointing. We assumed they just didn't get transferred to our CD at first. We went back and forth with e-mails and phone calls trying to figure out what happened to the photos because everyone else received photos of that run but the three of us. After a long run around and talking to several people they finally told us that the photographer went to the restroom and missed the shots!! When we attempted to request a partial refund Alex one of the employees said it wasn't deserved and refused. We told them we would be placing a formal complaint and posting negative reviews. Finally they agreed to give us a 25% refund which to us was a slap in the face after being lied to. This dishonesty is going to hurt their business. Before buying the photos ask the photographer if all shots were taken of each run (which we assumed were) and ask to review all photos so you won't be disappointed like we were. We will never use their services again.
