Fantastic Snow Conditions Drive the Decision to Push Back the Mountain’s Closing Date for the First Time in Years
ANGEL FIRE, New Mexico (February 1st, 2007) – Angel Fire Resort today announced it will extend the ski and snowboard season an additional week, moving its scheduled closing date from March 25th to April 1st. The extension follows a number of record-breaking snowstorms, which took the mountain from an 18-inch average snow base at Christmas-time to over four and half feet at present. Some forecasters are calling for additional significant snowstorms for the southern Rocky Mountains in February and March, citing the current El Nino-influenced weather pattern.
“To date we’ve received more snow than Mammoth, CA or Park City, UT,” says Jon Mahanna, general manager for Angel Fire Resort. “So much fresh powder has led us to extend our season for the first time in years. We got off to a late start, and now with some of the best conditions in the country, no one wants to see this great season cut short.”
Angel Fire Resort’s mountain is currently 100% open, including all chairlifts, two freestyle terrain parks, two new glade skiing areas, Nordic ski trails, the expanded Polar Coaster tubing hill and New Mexico’s only Halfpipe.
