Cheapest Lift Tickets in the Country To Ring In Golden Anniversary


Angel Fire Resort, Northern New Mexico’s premier family vacation destination, announced today the schedule of events that are planned for the resort’s 50th Anniversary celebration weekend, taking place January 19-22, 2017.

Paying tribute to the resort’s legendary pedigree and family-friendly mountain, which opened in 1966, the four-day celebration will cater to those who grew up coming to Angel Fire Resort, who have worked for the resort, as well as, current members and guests who want to join the party.

On January 19, 2017 Angel Fire Resort will kick off its anniversary weekend with a welcome cocktail party, live band and an exhibit of selected photos and artifacts that showcase the 50-year history of the resort.

“Our resort has such a rich history that this 50-year event will give many a time to reflect on how they first learned to ski on our mountain, taught others how to or even just spent a family vacation near the area,” explained Spencer Weimar, director of marketing, Angel Fire Resort.

In addition to the activities planned for the weekend, Angel Fire Resort is rolling back lift ticket prices to 1966. 550 Tickets sold for Saturday, January 21 and an additional 550 tickets sold for Sunday, January 22 will be just $5.50 each. Half of those tickets are available online now as part of a lodging package. The remaining 275 lift tickets for each of those days will be available for purchase at the ticket window on those mornings. The tickets will be good just for that day.
“I’m confident that we’ll be offering the most affordable adult lift ticket in the country over the Angel Fire Resort 50th Anniversary weekend. It’ll be a great weekend to put on your vintage ski suit and come check out the mountain,” Weimar added.
