How to Plan a Summer Couple’s Getaway to Angel Fire Resort

August 16, 2021

Remember how fun summer was when the season meant no school, road trips, and spending quality time with your relatives? Three months of excitement, adventure, relaxation, and making memories. It was the absolute best! 

Just because you’re an adult with a job and a family doesn’t mean you have to forego feeling like a kid again. Now is the perfect time to book a couple’s getaway to Angel Fire Resort!

Between now and the start of ski season, you and your significant other still have time to enjoy all the enchantment our corner of northern New Mexico has to offer. Taking inspiration is as easy as checking out the following sample itineraries. 

Adventure Itineraryzipline2

For anyone who misses the thrills that come with summer vacation, Angel Fire Resort offers a wide variety of outdoor activities to get your adrenaline pumping. From hiking and biking to hot air balloon tours, there are as many ways to enjoy the natural splendor of our mountain as there are ways to explore it.  

Many visitors spend their time at Angel Fire Resort hiking the numerous trails in and around the area. Our greenbelt trails are perfectly suited for walking, running, mountain biking, or horseback riding. More advanced hikers will definitely want to check out our mountain trails — especially Enlightenment Trail, which span thousands of vertical feet. 

Looking for other ways to get around on the mountain? Take the Chile Express scenic chairlift to the top of the mountain to try out the Angel Fire Zipline Adventure Tour. Soar through the air above the beautiful scenery for a view most will never get to experience. 

If you’d rather ride than fly, then the Angel Fire Bike Park is for you. Ours is the largest bike park in the Rocky Mountains, covering more than 60 miles of purpose-built, lift-served terrain. Rent all the gear you’ll need so you don’t have to pack anything other than a change of clothes and a sense of adventure. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, you can connect with a network of trails that run through the entire Moreno Valley — they’re ideal for cross-country biking

Other area adventure options include horseback tours, hot air balloon rides, river rafting trips, and ATV and off-road tours. Additionally, Monte Verde Lake on Angel Fire Resort offers boating, paddleboarding, and fishing. 

Play Itinerary 

Competitive couples who love giving it their all can spend their long weekend sporting at Angel Fire Resort.

September golfMany are eager to hit the links at our 18-hole golf course. When you tee off at 8,500 feet above sea level, it becomes obvious why: the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains surround our par 72, 6,653-yard course. Even if your game is a little off, you won’t mind as much because of the gorgeous views available at each hole. 

You can also take the Chile Express chairlift to the top of the mountain to play disc golf. Our 18-hole course is equipped with both amateur and pro tee pads. Scoring each of them takes you on a scenic hike passing through forested terrain that’s more than 10,000 feet above sea level. 

Eat, Drink and Relax Itinerary

Maybe you’ve already had a summer packed with activities, and, more than anything, you and your significant other just want to relax for a few days without the kids. Angel Fire Resort is fantastic for that, too! Lounge by the pool or on the shore of Monte Verde Lake.

Foodies rejoice when they discover all the culinary delights awaiting them at Angel Fire Resort. From fresh-made breakfast burritos at The Lift Café to Wagyu steaks and decadent desserts at Elements, you’ll enjoy every bite when you dine with us at Angel Fire Resort. Whether you’re looking to refuel for more adventure or wind down with a handcrafted cocktail at happy hour, you’ll never lack options that are both convenient and delicious.

If your idea of relaxation is a bit more active and social, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to mingle at Angel Fire Resort. Extracurricular and cultural activities include live concerts, a Sunday Farmers’ Market, and culinary and mixology classes

And, if you happen to meet another couple who’s up for a game of mixed doubles, visit the Angel Fire Resort Tennis Center. It’s home to six hard courts, including pickleball courts. Lessons and clinics are available with Tenni Pro Jimmy Celli. 

Maybe one of these itineraries really speaks to you. Perhaps portions of all three itineraries sound like the perfect way to give yourself and your partner a break from the kids before summer ends. 

Whatever the case may be, the time is now to stay more and play more at Angel Fire Resort! Now until the end of September, we’re giving guests who book a 3-night stay at our all-season mountain playground a FREE $100 credit they can put toward any activity.
