Angel Fire Resort, located in the Rocky Mountains of northern New Mexico, opened its RV resort for its first summer season, according to an announcement.

The resort has announced a series of expansions that will be completed in time for summer travelers. The new state-of-the-art RV resort is now open offering guests a scenic 35-acre location to camp and play.

Additionally, the resort’s popular Bike Park, ranked No. 1 Bike Park in the Southwest for the second year in a row, will nearly double its trail access to more than 100 miles and offer a first-of-its-kind Global Gravity Pass.

The resort will also be opening a fully stocked fly fishing lake at the summit, and offer fishing camps, lessons and rental equipment. The resort is already home to New Mexico’s largest zipline tour, an 18-hole PGA championship golf course and mountain lodge.

New This Season

RV Resort Now Open

Some places start with RVs and call it a resort. Angel Fire is starting with the resort and adding the RVs. The luxury resort, constructed on mountain meadowland at the foot of Carson National Forest, is now open with 102 RV spaces and will grow to offer 325 spaces in later phases. The new RV resort includes a well-appointed private clubhouse, paved roads, fully concreted, over-sized spaces with easy pull-through access and 30/50-amp electrical pedestals, DirecTV access, bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities, convenient Wi-Fi access and Jacuzzis, a putting green, horseshoes, a dog park and more.

With frontage access to U.S. Highway 64, the multi-million dollar resort will offer guests access to golf, fine dining, horseback riding, a zipline adventure tour, fishing and a mountain full of outdoor activities.

Additionally the resort is located on the Enchanted Circle and is in close proximity to world-class fishing in Cimarron Canyon and Eagle Nest State Park, guided hunting and ATV trails. Guests also have access to Carson National Forest for biking and hiking.

Angel Fire Bike Park Expands

Offering the longest season in the Rockies, Angel Fire’s award-winning bike park, created just a handful of years ago, has been named the #1 Bike Park in the Southwest by readers of MTBParks.com and Decline Magazine for the second year in a row.

The Bike Park has expanded its trails for this upcoming season to more than 100 miles, making it one of the largest bike parks in the North America. Additionally, the bike park is launching a new Global Gravity Season Pass — which allows season pass holders from any bike park in the world to purchase a single day pass for half price.

Continuing to build on its reputation as one of the largest world-class mountain biking destinations in the country, the Angel Fire Bike Park’s goal is to engage more beginners and intermediates to the sport and expand its cross-country trail network throughout the Angel Fire region and nearby Carson National Forest.

The park will also expand its new blue trail, Devinci’s Code, by two additional miles and will open to the public at the 5th annual Gravity Games and Bikes, Blues and Brews Festival, happening over Labor Day weekend. Rounding out the improvements for the park bike carriers have been added to the Chile Express chairlift for an easier transport to the summit.

Fly Fishing Lake Opens at the Summit July 1

A year in the making, the resort will officially open a fully stocked, fly fishing haven at the summit this summer. Summit Lake will be home to colorful Rainbow Trout and will host a series of fly fishing clinics, private lessons and full rental equipment.

New Mexico’s Largest Zipline Adds More Tour Times

The resort is continuing to improve on its ever-popular Rocky Mountain Zipline Adventure Tour, which takes thrill-seekers through multiple zipline stages at the summit. The tour is the second highest elevation zipline tour in the United States and the largest in New Mexico.

The six-segment tour opened in 2012 and has been so popular that the resort is now adding additional early-morning tour times to give adrenaline seekers more opportunity to fly 200’ high above the forest floor.

A zipline tour connects multiple ziplines of varying lengths and descents. The adventure begins with an introductory zipline of only 100 feet and works up to the Super Zipline, which carries guests on a 1,600-foot cable 200 feet above the forest floor.  Guests must weigh 90-270 pounds to ride the zipline.

High-Altitude Golf

Situated at 8,600’ elevation, Angel Fire Resort’s high-altitude, 18-hole Championship golf course offers affordable play to guests and its members. Rated as one of the top five courses in New Mexico by Golf America, the course winds through two unspoiled canyons of aspen and spruce high up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

In addition, the high elevation provides golfers relief from the summer heat and extra distance on their drives. The signature 6th hole features a tee box soaring 200 vertical feet above the green.  Rates start at $59 per round/$45 twilight and include a shared cart.

New this season, the golf course will also offer unlimited golf for $100 per person, per day.

Tennis Opens June 1

Located at Olympic Park just south of the Lodge at Angel Fire Resort on Highway 434, the Angel Fire Resort Tennis Center includes six hard courts for use by Resort members, guests and visitors to the Moreno Valley. The Tennis Center is open to the public. Clinics, lessons, tournaments and weekly play are available and start in June.

Special Summer Lodging Packages

The Lodge at Angel Fire Resort is located at the base of the mountain and has undergone a large makeover now offering 121 rooms and 24 family-style suites with updated amenities. Along with the hotel, condos and private homes are also available. The lodge offers several dining options, including The Coffee House and Legends, as well as free Wi-Fi, indoor pool, hot tub and fitness center.
