The leaves are starting to change in the mountains and we’re ready for some autumn color here at Angel Fire. 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.
Thanks to an amazing summer season, we have decided to keep the Chile Express running until October 21st. Angel Fire will be one of the only bike parks in the country opened this late into the autumn, so don’t miss out! The temperatures have been dipping below 40° at night and fall sweaters have been making their return. Hopefully that means winter is right around the corner!
What is Whatville?
If you are and Angel Fire local, or have visited this summer, you may have noticed rainbow of neon glowing colors North of town after sunset. Local artist, Ray Renfroe, created this little village to promote happiness & love in Moreno Valley. He purchased the land 2 years ago and has spent the last year and a half completing his vision. The imaginary “Shadow National Forest” is part Dr. Seuss, part vintage Americana. One thing is for sure, it’s definitely a sight to see here in Angel Fire. For more information, check out a recent article by Albuquerque Journal.
We have more events planned for this fall that we will be sharing soon, follow us on Facebook to stay up to date!
