Fiesta del Sol Timed to Best Spring Skiing in Years at Angel

The 5th Annual Spring Break Celebration Runs March 13 – 20, 2010

ANGEL FIRE, New Mexico (March 9, 2010) – Angel Fire Resort announced today it will host the fifth annual Fiesta del Sol on its ski mountain March 13-20. Fiesta del Sol is a week long celebration combining classic spring break fun and snow sporting events, all on one powdery, sun-filled mountain. It consists of wild competitions, including terrain park challenges, snow volleyball, pond skimming, live music outdoors, themed après ski parties and extended night skiing and tubing.

“Our spring break crowd is a great mix of vacationing families and young revelers so we strive to make Fiesta del Sol the perfect balance of entertainment for all ages,” said Dave Dekema, director of marketing for Angel Fire Resort. “With 100% of the mountain open, over 200 inches of snow year-to-date, a 60-plus inch base and fresh powder in the forecast, Angel Fire is enjoying the best spring skiing and boarding we’ve seen in years. Thanks El Nino!”
