The resort enjoys a summit elevation of an impressive 10 677ft and it makes full use of the mountain’s height. There is a 2 077ft vertical drop featuring 70 different trails, which encompass an area that is approximately 445 acres in size. The trails cater to skiers and snowboarders of all levels and are graded 31% beginner, 48% intermediate and 21% advanced.

Your hunger is best satisfied at the Lazy Lizard Cantina, the Branding Iron or the Angel Fire Resort Country Club. Lodging takes the form of a hotel or a number of condominiums, and you will usually find a warm fireplace, a good masseuse or soothing hot tub at your disposal. On weekends the village comes alive with bars, special events, fireworks displays, fun races and snowboard competitions – it all depends on when you’re visiting. In summer the face of the resort softens somewhat but you’ll still find tons of activities to enjoy. These include mountain biking, golf, AVT tours, bungee trampoline, scenic chairlift rides, rock climbing, river rafting, horseback riding, hiking, tennis, wildlife tours and access to the Olympic Park Playground.
