Angel Fire’s Season-Long Golden Anniversary Celebration

Angel Fire is celebrating its 50th anniversary and the gifts are all for you. Mark your calendar, Angel Fire Resort will host a weekend-long celebration January 19 through 22, 2017 and you will want to be part of it.


To celebrate the golden anniversary, the first 550 skiers/boarders on each day can purchase lift tickets for $5.50, the same price the tickets cost on opening day in 1966. The weekend starts with a welcome party and an open house that displays items showcasing the resort’s rich 50 year history. The Saturday night party includes a live performance by the classic rock band Atomic Balm. A Vintage Ski Suit Après Ski Party on the deck is planned, free night skiing, and it all wraps up with a fireworks show.

Angel Fire opens on December 9th this year and if you can’t make the golden anniversary celebration, there are other events throughout the season:

  • The Big Ol’ Texas Weekend January 27-29, 2017, features a hold ’em tournament and the Big Texan Steak Challenge.
  • The World Championship Shovel Races are February 3-4, 2017.
  • The Angel Fire Mardi Gras Celebration takes place February 24-28, 2017.
  • The two-week long Fiesta del Sol Spring Break Celebration rocks from March 4th to the 19th, 2017.

This year Angel Fire has a new boarder-skier cross course for your enjoyment, and it’s improving the Stash Park. Boarder-skier cross courses have both naturally occurring terrain and artificial features including big-air jumps and high-banked turns where stash parks use all natural elements. Trails are being widened, and there is new equipment to groom the trails.

Angel Fire is already one of the top resorts in New Mexico and with their anniversary year improvements, it just got better.
