Nestled in the Moreno Valley at almost 8500 feet above sea level, Angel Fire is an ideal location for adventurers and families looking for outstanding summer activities in a place where you can just be yourself. Angel Fire offers something for everyone who enjoys the outdoors. This summer, enjoy adventures above, down, and in the valley.
Above the valley, Angel Fire is home to one of the most inspiring balloon festivals in the United States. Over 40 balloons ascend in the morning and float high above the Moreno Valley and the mountain peaks. Take pictures, enjoy the laid-back Angel Fire atmosphere, and meet people who come from across the country for this remarkable event. A great Father’s Day Weekend getaway (June 19-20, 2020), our balloon operators are relaxed, fun, and eager to share what they do.
If you want to race down the Moreno Valley, check out Angel Fire’s mountain bike park which was voted best in the Southwest by MTBparks,com for five years in a row. Served by the chairlift at the Angel Fire Resort, climb over 2,000 vertical feet and race down over 60 miles of purpose-built terrain. If you’re an experienced mountain biker you can gear up and scream down an advanced trail like Pinball. Beginners can try out Easy Street for a chance to build some skills and have fun. Lessons, guided tours, and rentals are available.
In the Moreno Valley, the golf season begins in May and runs through the summer. At 8,400 feet above sea level, morning tee times are cool and bright and the average high in July is 78 degrees. The clubhouse is fully staffed and offers a wide array of amenities and lessons are available. Surrounded by mountain peaks, you can golf along canyons, between towering pines, and among the aspen forests. Golf at Angel Fire is like everything else in this beautiful valley: it’s a place of spectacular beauty for people who love and appreciate the outdoors.
People return to Angel Fire year after year for many reasons. They often cite the beautiful mountains and the fresh air. The biggest reason visitors return again and again, however, is the people. Angel Fire is an adventurer’s delight for outdoor enthusiasts who don’t take themselves too seriously, for families who want a break from hectic cities and summer heat, and for anyone who wants to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of a fantastic community.
