Angel Fire Resort is ready to light up 50 acres for fun after dark. A set of freestyle park features including jumps, rails and fun boxes will be accessible during the evening hours, as well as the timed NASTAR race course and the very popular Polar Coaster tubing hill. Runs including Exhibition, a favorite front side run, along with Ridge Run, Valley, and Dreamcatcher will all be fair game when the sun sets.
"Where I came from, night skiing was a huge draw in the mountains nearby," said Pat Brunstad, Angel Fire CEO. "As much as any powder day was an event, night skiing was absolutely the place to be when the sun went down. We are looking to create that same high-energy fun here."
Night skiing and snowboarding will be available 4 p.m.-9 p.m.,Thursday through Saturday throughout the season, and seven days a week during peak holiday periods. Night lift ticket prices are $24, with a reduced $12 ticket available for guests with a valid Angel Fire lift ticket for the same day. A season-long Night Skiing pass will be available for $99. A grand opening for Night Skiing and Snowboarding is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19, and will include live music and entertainment adjacent to the slopes.
