Skied Angel Fire 3 days last week while staying in Red River. Much better than RR. Bigger, better lifts with lift operators who know what they're doing. Twice as much terrain with great terr. parks if you're into that. I skied the first day on a Wed. and there were no lines for anything. We skied Taos (the best) on Thurs. and were planning on doing Taos again Fri. and Sat. but our son and a friend came down from CO Fri. morning and since they board we had to go back to Angel Fire. What a difference a day makes. The weekend crowd that came in totally overwhelmed the staff at AF. There was an hour wait to get lift tickets at 10:00. One guy said he waited two hours to set up lessons for his family only to be told they were full. Lift lines were initially bad but improved throughout the day. The skiing was good with some nice blue groomers and a few nice black moguls on the backside but main thoroughfares were usually very clogged. Don't go on a weekend, especially if conditions are good. I think half the skiers and boarders in Texas were there. Also, bring car mat covers and old shoes, parking lots are mud pits.
