From the Desk of Angel Fire Mayor Jo Mixon: Are you Ready for the Summer? We Are!!!

by Mayor Jo Mixon, Angel Fire, jmixon@angelfirenm.gov

Activities slow down a little in the Moreno Valley during April and early May. Tourists are not as visible, many locals head for the beach to get a little rest from the seasonal pace we keep, some businesses close to take a breather, do heavy cleaning and regroup for the next season. Now is the time, behind the scenes, when all of the preparation for what is to come in late spring and summer is at full speed. The weather either cooperates or doesn’t, we don’t mind at all. Currently with the monster fires looming to our south and east, we are monitoring their conditions daily. Our gratitude goes out to the brave and tireless firefighters battling to keep us safe, as we try to maintain a bit of normalcy in our day to day routines. We are also thankful for the spring snow that blanketed the mountain last night and are praying for the winds to cease entirely. With all that said, I want to give you a glimpse of what events to look forward to in May of 2022.

May 20th is Summer Season Opening Day at the Angel Fire Resort. Gear up for the Angel Fire Bike Park or tee off on the Angel Fire Golf Course. Ride the Chile Express scenic chairlift to experience the Zipline Adventure Tour and 18-hole Disc Golf on the summit of the mountain. Opening also will be all Monte Verde Lake activities and the Olympic Park Tennis and Pickleball Courts. For more information and a complete calendar of activities and chairlift calendar, visit this link, Angel Fire Resort

Run For the Wall, May 20th: Meet us at the blinking light approximately 4:00pm to welcome over 300 riders along their way to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. Sign up to help provide them a meal in Eagle Nest.

Plus, there are so many reasons other than the above events to plan a trip to Angel Fire this summer. You can attend the interactive Cowboy Evenings Chuckwagon dinners or go on an ATV tour at Bobcat Pass Wilderness Adventures, ride the rapids of the Rio Grande with Far Flung Adventures and New Mexico River Adventures, purchase or rent bikes from the Trailhead Ski & Bike Shop, get all your summer hiking and fishing gear from Mountain Sports of Angel Fire.

There is something for everyone with plenty of other activities and events filling the summer roster, check it out at Calendar of Events (note: events are updated as soon as we are notified) so do not hesitate to make your reservations now. We invite you to come on up for fresh air and fun!


Shuter Library Will Soon Have A New Children’s Activity Center

This organization is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities & the New Mexico Humanities Council.


Construction is under way! When complete, the Children's Activity Center will provide 300 square feet of space for reading, writing, building, singing, playing and sharing.

Library staff and volunteers will nurture skills in personal expression such as art and design; interactive skills such as computer programming and object design; and distance learning through organizations we can link to our patrons. Children (of all ages) can learn to make xylophones out of bananas and use 3D printers to make robots!

Donations are welcome--to fill this new space with supplies and equipment. You can make a gift through Facebook; in person at the library; with your credit card over the phone (575.377.6755); or by mailing your check to the Shuter Library, P O Box 298, Angel Fire NM 87710-0298.

And Watch For The Grand Opening!
