Most folks have a fantasy about a beautiful place for a vacation. Something about great scenery makes a person feel better, takes your mind off your worries and puts the daily grind on the back burner. From the angel fire that lights the high peaks at sunrise and sunset to the mountains etched against the bluest of blue skies to the deep canyons with their crystal clear lakes and streams to the magnificent vistas filled with pines and aspens, Angel Fire is one of those places. It's something you have to see to believe.

Some of the highest peaks in New Mexico are here with enough steep terrain to make any mountain biker, snowboarder or skier happy. Angel Fire sports the family fun focused Angel Fire Ski Resort with 2 high speed quad lifts, more runs and more snow than ever. The World Championship Shovel Races happen here, as do the New Mexico State Mountain Bike Championships. Angel Fire also hosts a world class Chamber Music Festival every summer, along with a Balloon Festival, Mountain Man Rendezvous, Gourmet Jubilee Culinary Extravaganza, and Mountain Theatre stage plays.

Relaxing doesn't just mean doing nothing, it means doing what you like to do without being in a rush all the time. The Forest isn't going anywhere, neither are the mountains or the slopes. On the other hand, the fish are just waiting to say "Hello" to every flyfisherman who comes along. So take a little time out and see what Angel Fire is really all about. You won't be disappointed.
