Angel Fire Resort opens terrain park

Angel Fire Resort announced that it will be adding new terrain for skiers and boarders, offering added value special winter discounts, and focusing its efforts on creating the best Southern Rockies Family Friendly ski resort for the 2013-2014 season.

This summer, Angel Fire’s Bike Park was named one of the top five in North America. The resort will now transition the popular biking destination into new terrain for skiers and boarders. Transforming a few of the resort’s popular bike trails from summer, two new half-mile winter trails will be added to Angel Fire Resort. The first will offer berms and jumps, similar to the popular Bominable trail, at the top of the mountain. The second, continuing with Angel Fire’s popular “Gladed Tree Trails”, will offer skiers a gentle winding trail through the trees.

The resort is also building a completely new nighttime terrain park on the front side named “Powder City.” The park will be off Ridge Run on Valley Trail. The resort will host at least one USASA Freestyle Competition in Powder City this winter.
