We went to Angel Fire for the first time last year and, after receiving such a warm welcome and having such an incredible trip, it was almost impossible that we wouldn't go back.
The bike park has a wide variety of downhill trails for all levels -- beginner, intermediate, and advanced -- and a dedicated drops teaching area too. There are also beginner and intermediate cross-country trails heading out right from the base with short and long loops, lots of flow, some steeps and other technical challenges, and great scenery.
As always, we’re planning technical skill development sessions in the mornings, small group instructional rides in the afternoon, and a program featuring maintenance clinics, bike set up, snacks, drinks and social time on Saturday evening.
At the Angel Fire camp, participants can choose between two days of lift-accessed downhill riding, two days of cross-country riding, or one day of each. We're still in the process of working out details with the resort, but at a minimum participants will be able to purchase tickets for $25 per day, which is 50% off regular rates.
Angel Fire is in a desert, even though it's also located in a high altitude forest, and late September is one of the most beautiful times of year. The resort staff are super helpful in setting things up, so see below for great deals on accommodations too.
