LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO STAY?

Come celebrate the 4th of July under a sky full of stars.
The Resort campground, conveniently located just a short walk from the base of the mountain, offers port-a-potties and a washing station. While we aren’t allowing campfires this season, you’re welcome to bring your cooking stoves, pop up your tent and gather around our community fire pit.
Just steps from the base of the mountain, our Lodge offers rooms for families of any size! Cool off in our pool, grab coffee or lunch at The Lift Cafe in the lobby, or walk right up to the Ticket Office and get your Scenic Chairlift Ride tickets.

FAMILY FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES:
MONTE VERDE LAKE
Gather the family and get in touch with nature at Angel Fire Resort’s Monte Verde Lake for some fishing, standup paddleboarding or pedalboating on the water. Let the kids try out our Eurobungy & Climbing Wall. There are plenty of picnic tables & an easy walking path surrounding the entire lake that every age can enjoy.
DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKING
While in Angel Fire, you can enjoy the largest Bike Park in the Rocky Mountains! If you have never ridden a Bike Park or are a beginner to downhill riding, this is the perfect time to take a lesson or a guided ride. Riders will be introduced to elements of bike control through body positioning, braking and cornering on a gentle slope under the guidance of an instructor.
The Moreno Valley awaits your adventurous spirit. Meet it on foot or on a bike to experience the great outdoors on terrain suited for all levels. The Greenbelt trail system in the Village of Angel Fire is a free-access system of trails that can be used for cross-country mountain biking, running or even hiking.
Take in the beautiful views as our chairlift rides take you to the summit of our mountain at 10,677 feet. Explore one of the hiking trails, play disc golf or pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the valley views. When you are ready to head back, you have the option of either hiking down or riding the chairlift back to the base area.
The Angel Fire Resort Zipline Adventure Tours are sure to get your adrenaline pumping and create family memories that will last a lifetime! Between ziplines, you’ll walk along a well-maintained path which allows you to fully enjoy the beauty of the Southern Rocky Mountains. Your kiddos do need to weigh at least 90 lbs. to enjoy the full Adventure Tour, but this summer we’re offering the Family Flyer – two shorter ziplines for those who weigh 50 lbs. or more!
