Summer Fun: Mountain Biking, Golf, Ziplines, Hiking, Lake Activities and so much more. Angel Fire Resort is your base for all things family adventure in the heart of the mountains. Whether your type of fun includes an adrenaline-pumping afternoon of downhill mountain biking, or a day of fishing and relaxing at the lake.
Lake Day: Fishing and Cruising on a Pedal Boat
Monte Verde Lake is a treasure trove of family adventure, just choose your favorite activities! Cast a line and try your luck catching Rainbow Lake Trout. We even rent rods and fishing boats so all you need to bring is the picnic! Don’t like to fish, but still want to have a summer lake party? We even rent pedal boats, and paddle boards! After a day of fun on the lake, chill out with a cocktail for mom, and milkshakes for the kids at Elements and Par & Grill, inside the Country Club.
Family Bike Rides at Angel Fire Resort
This is top on our list of Family Must-Dos for Angel Fire, because our resort is truly built for families with a spectrum of all riding abilities. Although Angel Fire is well known for its award-winning Bike Park, there’s plenty of family-friendly trails that are perfectly suited for beginners to the two wheel game. One Greenbelt trail, Bobcat, will take you directly to Olympic Park here in Angel Fire. The park serves as the perfect spot to hold a summer picnic and rest as you plan your next adventure. Here’s a map of the greenbelt trails that weave through Moreno Valley.
After cruising around the village or letting gravity do all the work, fuel up the family at El Jefe, right at the base of the mountain. The family-friendly menu has a treat for everyone, and delicious margs!
Scenic Chairlift Rides: Cruise to the Top
Why hike to the roof of New Mexico when you and your family can take the Scenic Chairlift and enjoy scenery like never before? Take in the beautiful views as our chairlift rides take you to the summit of our mountain at 10,677 ft. When you are ready to head back, you have the option of either hiking down or riding the chairlift back to the base area.
While at the summit, enjoy a breezy game of Disc Golf with the kids, and challenge yourself to all 18 holes! The course includes amateur and pro tee pads, so the whole family can enjoy tossing one in for the victory. Disc rentals and packages with lift tickets are available at the Ticket Office at the base of the Chile Express.
Pro Tip: Place a to-go order at El Jefe’s or The Lift and enjoy lunch with a view from the Summit Haus. The trail head of the Enlightenment hiking trail is located to the right as you unload from the chairlift.
