village of angel fire
Elevation: 8,600 feet
You’ll find us in the picturesque Moreno Valley, just a half-hour east of Taos. Our town sits on the valley floor at 8,420 feet and the mountains surrounding us rise to over 11,000 feet. At the northern end of the valley, Wheeler Peak (New Mexico’s highest) sits at a majestic 13,161 feet. Our people are friendly and down-to-earth and our streets never feel too crowded.
Here in Angel Fire every season offers new temptations. Our weather is perfect: nice and snowy in the winter, never hot in the summer. Sunny days and amazingly starry nights. Armloads of wildflowers in late spring and summer, mountainsides of golden aspens in fall. Eye-popping sunrises and sunsets.
How cool! Angel Fire in Winter!
Generations of skiers know Angel Fire as a family-friendly ski resort in the southern Rockies. Our community centerpiece, the Angel Fire Resort ski area, offers a mountain-full of unspoiled, uncrowded ski and snowboard trails for every ability level and short lift lines that’ll have you back up the mountain in a heartbeat.

76° summer average…nice!
In spring, summer and fall, the mountainsides form a backdrop of colorful meadows or brilliant golden aspens, and the weather’s always perfect.
There’s a lot to do and it’s all right here, whether you’re an extreme sports fanatic or looking for low-key decompression. You can golf, hike, fish, mountain bike or just hang out by the lake.
