Adventures await you at New Mexico’s True Mountain Resort! Fall is a spectacular time of year in Angel Fire. With the extended season for Golf, the Bike Park and Chile Express, now is the time to enjoy everything the resort has to offer. Check out our top 5 adventures to experience fall at Angel Fire Resort.
Ride the Chile Express & Hike Down
The leaves are starting to change in the mountains and we’re ready for some autumn color here at Angel Fire Resort. What’s the best way to see these beautiful fall colors? A quick ride up the Chile Express will bring you 2000 ft above the Moreno Valley where you will see panoramic views of the Southern Rockies and gorgeous fall colors. If you’re feeling adventurous, the Enlightenment Trail is an advanced hiking trail that spans over 2000 vertical feet, from the summit of Angel Fire Resort to the base accessed by the Chile Express.
Disc Golf at the Summit
Capture the best views around and challenge your friends to a round of disc golf at the Summit. The 18-hole disc golf course features both amateur and pro tee pads. The course snakes you through a scenic hike above the Moreno Valley floor. With the last hole bringing you back to the central summit area. Course maps, disc rentals and scorecards are available in the Ticket Office at the base of the Chile Express chairlift. Call (575) 377-4383 for any additional information.
Golf With the Pros
Grab your clubs and tee off at Angel Fire Resort’s unspoiled golf course. The par 72, 6,653 yard, 18-hole golf course meanders through groves of aspen, spruce and pine. Autumn at the golf course is particularly special, with tee times plenty and an uncrowded country club. Reserve your spot here or by calling (575) 377-4488.
Paddle Around the Lake
Just because summer is over, that doesn’t mean the water is off limits. Monte Verde lake is your premiere spot for fishing, paddling and even walking the dog. Fishing equipment, bait, stand-up paddle boards, pedal boats, two-person kayaks, and fishing boats are available for rent. In fact, the fun continues at Monte Verde Lake on weekends through October 27.
Bike Park Adventures
Ah yes, autumn. Our favorite time of year for a crisp, morning ride through golden glades, kicking up leaves! But seriously, it is gorgeous this time of year here at Angel Fire Resort. Not only are we extending the season through Nov. 3rd, but we’re opening up a new trail! Rejoice! Because Smoke Signals will turn up the heat on your morning ride.
