ANGEL FIRE, New Mexico (October XX, 2005) – Angel Fire Resort, the southwest’s premier year-round alpine recreation destination, had nearly 170,000 skier visits last season, making it one of the most successful seasons in the history of the resort. Now Angel Fire is gearing up for its 39th winter season with affordable lift tickets and a winter calendar full of special events.
Angel Fire Resort will be offering the lowest lift ticket prices of the top five resorts in New Mexico and throughout the rest of Rockies. For $48 for adult / $33 junior skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the best winter value in New Mexico and southern Colorado. Along with low lift ticket prices, Angel Fire has reduced their lodging room rates at the recently refurbished resort hotel.
Angel Fire Resort will be opening new terrain areas. The resort has expanded its very popular tubing hill, the Polar Coaster, and will for the first time offer skiers and boarders a chance to ride in the trees with the new glade skiing area complete with natural terrain features. Also new this year is Lowrider Park, a small feature terrain park for both skiers and boarders, geared towards learning and perfecting technique on small scale rails and jumps before moving on to Liberation Park.
“It’s our goal to give people the best mountain value in the southwest. You won’t find a place in New Mexico where you can get more for your money than Angel Fire Resort,” said Jon Mahanna, Angel Fire General Manager. “Each year we try to expand winter options. This year it’s glade skiing. When you buy a lift ticket here we guarantee you’ll always find something new.”
The resort is also packing the special events calendar for the 2005-2006 winter season with activities that will entertain both expert and novice skiers, as well as provide benefit events which will enable skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts an opportunity to give back.
The resort’s annual Benefit Day will kick off the opening of the mountain on December 8. Lift tickets will be just $15. All proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross to help aid Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita victims. The resort will officially launch Opening day on December 9.
Angel Fire Resort will also be offering some of last winter’s popular promotions, including the 5th Grade Free promotion, Kids Stay, Eat and Ski Free, and You Keep the Gear package. Those 70 and over and 6 and under ski for free. Season pass options include: Sundays Only Season Pass which allows them to ski or snowboard every Sunday of the season for just $99; Student / Active Duty Military Season Pass good for everyday throughout the season for $249; and General Public Season Pass for $399. All Angel Fire Resort season passes come with three free days of skiing at Ski Monarch in southern Colorado.
