There comes a time every year when the pencils are put down. The notebooks are tossed out or abandoned in a backpack hung in the storage closet. The Summer days get longer and hotter and harken for all of us to frolic in them, bask in the sun and revive our sense of playing, once again.
So, heed nature’s call! There is really no better way to do it than at Angel Fire Resort. Weekend getaways or months-long, multi-generational stays — bring your youngest and oldest for a summer vacation everyone will love. Book a family suite at The Lodge, or check out available homes and condos to rent in the area.
Here are a few fantastic ways to enjoy it all once you get here.
BASE AREA ACTIVITIES
Nurture kids’ adventurous spirit and get some wiggles out at our base area. Package prices available or access activities a la carte.
- Climbing wall with over 100 holds, and routes that include the “gnarly tree” and the “treacherous waterfall”
- Eurobungy, a combination trampoline-pulley that lets kids jump, soar and spin
- Bounce House for littler ones to go bonkers in (because you know they will!)
- Olympic Park, our free piece of paradise that includes a pond and picnic area, tennis and basketball courts, and a playground
KIDS’ GOLF CAMP AND CLINICS
Got the next Annika or Tiger? Give kids a chance to learn golf basics or better their games at our focused yet fun camps and clinics. Dates are available all summer long, for kids aged 6-16. Camp is five, full days of golf instruction plus hiking, fishing, tennis, volleyball and zipline. Clinics are weeklong programs with a few hours each day of golf fundamentals, games and activities.
KIDS’ DOWNHILL BIKING CLINICS & LESSONS
Offered once a month from June through October, our downhill bike clinics are for kids aged 7-15 who want to blaze down mountain terrain atop two, tough wheels. Come with or without a bike and armor — we’ll make sure they’re outfitted, safe, and totally stoked about this awesome sport.
New this year we will also be offering a “Ready to Ride” intro lesson for only $49. Just the kids or the whole family can comfortably be introduced to elements of bike control through body positioning, braking and cornering at the base area on a gentle slope under the guidance of an instructor.
MONTE VERDE LAKE
A high mountain lake on a summer day is maybe the best thing on Earth. Boating, fishing and stand-up paddling on one? Definitely the best. All equipment is available for rental onsite at our very own, Monte Verde Lake. Trails circling and within walking distance from the lake offer a chance to stroll, hike or bike. Kids six and under can fish for free!
COOL SUMMER NIGHTS CONCERT SERIES
Wind down your wild days with our free and family-friendly summer show series. This brand new part of our summer lineup brings the sweet sounds of Folk, Blues, Bluegrass and Rock to crowds on Friday nights at Frontier Plaza. Lounge, laugh, dance and taste local flavors from a foray of food trucks with all your favorite people at your side.
And get ready to explore other options like the chairlift, swimming pool, disc golf and so much more. Because, really, this is just the beginning. Vacation is about everything you plan — and everything you can’t. The stories, the slip ups, the inside jokes, the silly moments. It’s your wonderful family, your summertime, and our pleasure to have you here.
