My wife and I are going to be able to get away for a weekend to NM to ski at the end of February. She has a work meeting in Santa Fe Tuesday and Wednesday, so we will probably be able to leave Friday evening so we can ski Saturday and Sunday, maybe half day on Monday.
I’m a solid blue skier, but avoid moguls and trees altogether. My wife will ski blacks every once in a while, but is good skiing blue with me.
We have skied Santa Fe a number of times, and I like that mountain, but it doesn’t have a lot of blue runs.
We are thinking about trying Angel Fire just for a change of pace and it looks to have a lot of blue runs. To me the only downside is Angel Fire will have a lot fewer restaurants and such than Santa Fe, and we love Santa Fe. The upside is we can stay in the lodge and be steps away from the lift as opposed to a 30 to 45 minute drive up the mountain each morning in Santa Fe.
Thoughts on Angel Fire? Or even other ski areas close by? We will likely fly into ABQ so it will be a drive to anywhere we go.
