Angel Fire Resort And Angel Fire, New Mexico Winter Review

My family, dog, and I recently returned from memorable rocky mountain experience in Angel Fire, New Mexico.  We stayed at the pet-friendly, Lodge at Angel Fire Resort.

We spent four nights and three days there skiing, playing, taking snowboarding and skiing lessons, eating, relaxing, and playing in the snow.

Arriving At The Angel Fire Lodge

The staff was very warm and welcoming and seemed especially happy to see our big Golden Retriever. We also got a welcome gift bag for our dog filled with treats.

The Lodge is a short walk to the ski lifts and ski rental. There’s an indoor pool, hot tub, fitness room, free Wi-Fi access, washer/dryer facility, and a few restaurant choices.


There is a variety of restaurants to choose from at the resort. The food and food service overall was just mediocre. The food was overpriced, as it is at most resorts.

Our experience skiing was nice. While the kids were in ski school for two days, my husband and I were able to enjoy the slopes.

Angel Fire Ski School

We signed the kids up for two days of Ski School. The first day of lessons did not go well. The next day, we switched the kids to ski lessons. It was a success.
