Romantic weekend getaways don’t have to be reserved for warm weather. A winter escape can revive your passion for adventure and create lasting memories. With its snowy mountainous backdrop, Angel Fire Resort is home to activities that bring couples closer together. After all, what’s not to love about the Southern Rockies and the alpine experiences they offer?
The key to setting the proper mood for your romantic getaway? The perfect room: one that gives you privacy, plenty of amenities and the space you need to relax.
Angel Fire Resort’s private home or condominium vacation rentals definitely fit that bill. Fully furnished — complete with kitchens, separate living areas, and fireplaces — these accommodations also open up to decks and balconies that provide spectacular views. Private hot tubs are also available at some properties, perfect for soaking up each other’s company after a long day spent exploring the Enchanted Circle.
Whether admiring the scenery, cozying up by a roaring pinon log fire, preparing a decadent meal, or jacuzzi-ing, you and your special someone will feel right at home at Angel Fire Resort.
Party Of Two, Please
Some say there’s no accounting for taste. Not so here at Angel Fire Resort. You and your valentine have multiple options for wining and dining one another.
Set the table for romance with a gourmet entree like braised beef shanks (osso bucco) from Elements. Hankering after a sinful dessert? Try the crème brûlée or the cheesecake, but remember that sharing is caring.
Spice up your date night with margaritas and the pleasures of New Mexican cuisine — from Rio Verde pork carnitas tacos to house-smoked brisket burritos — at El Jefe. Comfort food and seasonal craft brews more your thing? You’ll always have Legends Grill. Finally, if you want to take your weekend to new heights, sit down for a casual brunch on the wraparound patio at The Summit Haus.
Of course, you don’t even have to leave your room to enjoy a restaurant experience. We’re offering guests take-out, online ordering, home delivery, and room service (at The Lodge) all season long.

Take Your Turns At Night
Hitting the slopes with your honey feels a lot more romantic in the moonlight. (Mark your calendars: the next two full moon phases occur January 28th and February 27th.) You’ll feel like you’re the only two people on the mountain as you take your turns side-by-side on our lighted runs. On select nights between 5 and 7 p.m., Angel Fire Resort plays host to the only night skiing (and snowboarding) in New Mexico.
We’re talking over 50 acres of groomed trails along the front side of the mountain. So bundle up, breath in the crisp evening air, and get ready to wish upon a star — more stars than you’ve ever seen.
Fall In Love With Nature All Over Again
Imagine leaving the stress of your workaday life behind and exploring all the wintry wonder on display in the Southern Rockies. Don snowshoes or cross-country skis and get ready to explore off the beaten track.
Leisurely take in favorite Angel Fire Resort sights like Oeste Vista. This moderate hike is especially suited for snowshoes and provides majestic views of both Wheeler Peak — the highest point in New Mexico — and the Moreno Valley. And keep your eyes open for the critters that call our mountain backyard home. That includes wild turkeys, white tail deer, bobcats, rabbits and members of one of the largest elk herds in North America.
So, pack a picnic basket and experience the peaceful solace that only a winter hike can offer.
After your Nordic adventures, chances are you’ll want to bask in the glow of each other’s company. Strike the first spark over a hot adult beverage from Elements’s special take-out “winter warmup” menu. After stoking your passion by one of our communal fire pits, head on up to The Club. It’s a great place to quietly appreciate the surrounding wilderness.
If you’re fresh off the slopes from a night skiing session, grab a cold beer or craft cocktail to-go from Legends Grill, repair to your room, and loosen up.
