STORMS ROLL IN AS NEW MEXICO ROLLS ON WITH SOME OF THE NATION’S BEST SKIING
As New Storms Blanket The Mountains
Angel Fire Resort Preps for a Busy Spring Break
ANGEL FIRE, NM – As storms continue to hammer Northern New Mexico dropping five feet of snow over Angel Fire Resort, skiing and riding conditions just keep getting better. The snowfall from this past storm is leading into what the state’s ski resorts hope to be a record-setting spring season.
“These are definitely the conditions that everyone loves,” explains Dan Swanson, director of marketing, Angel Fire Resort. “Over five feet of new snow in the past 10 days has given us the best conditions of the season. With more storms heading our way and with the next couple of weeks packed with lively Spring Break events, hopefully it offers everyone a chance to come up and experience the best that Angel Fire has to offer.”
With 100% of the ski mountain now open and a 76” snow base, Angel Fire Resort enjoyed record skier visits over the President’s Day holiday weekend and a Veteran’s Appreciation Weekend they held in late February. Now the resort is focusing on Fiesta Del Sol, the Spring Break festival that lasts from March 6 – 19. Typically the state’s northern mountains see an uptick in storms in late February and March creating great conditions, which should continue through the resort’s extended spring break. After a staggering amount of snow topping 60 inches, meteorologists in the area predict another round of storms for the southwest through this week.
“We were optimistic that we would have a great snow year and that’s how things are panning out. With more on the way we are looking at incredible snow conditions leading into March,” Swanson adds.
As part of Fiesta Del Sol which runs March 6-19, Angel Fire Resort will run a Dos Equis Big Airbag March 9 – 11 and again March 16 – 18. The activity will take place on Exhibition just above the base of the mountain. Skiers and snowboarders will ride down a ramp and off a jump into the inflatable 50×50 foot airbag. Participants must be at least 21 and wear a helmet. The Bag is free, with a valid lift ticket for all brave enough to try it and includes a free Dos Equis beer in any of the resort’s dining outlets
Additionally the resort will host a Dos Equis Most Interesting Ski Run on the backside of the mountain, a Most Interesting Bar in the base village, a Pi Day Party on March 14, a St. Patrick’s Day Party, a dummy launch, live music and outdoor grills throughout the entire Fiesta Del Sol event. There will also be daily night skiing available.
