Angel Fire Resort News

Food & Beverage

The Resort is excited to announce a few changes to their food and beverage program this season.

First, congratulations Amy Warmbein, who accepted the much deserved position as Assistant Food & Beverage Manager. Amy will be a key figure overseeing all F&B product orders and inventory control.

They will say goodbye to En Fuego and Caliente as these areas become one venue called Legends Grill. This name change takes the Resort back to their roots, when they began as the Legends Hotel.

Chef John Treasaigh was key in developing the new menu consisting of burgers, sandwiches, fish & chips, appetizers and signature homemade fries and onion rings. Décor changes will happen after the ski season.

Chianti’s will remain a pizzeria open daily for dinner.

The Village Haus welcomes back Debbie Miller as floor supervisor, Jen McCallister as bar supervisor and a new employee (but old friend of Angel Fire) Jose Arellano, from Tres Amigos, as our new kitchen manager. The Resort has a great team in the Village Haus offering a few new menu items, faster service programs and earlier hours for entertainment to capture our guests as they leave the mountain.

Sorry, but no more late nights at the Village Haus. When the mountain closes for the evening, so does the bar with the exception of a few special events.

The Resort announces another new face who will be supervising the Summit Haus and assisting at Legends Grill. Please be sure to welcome Richard Koch from Evergreen, CO.

Richard comes to us with over 20 years food & beverage experience. Richard will be key to training front of the house staff and isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and jump in where needed.

The Mountain House will have a very limited menu of food & beverage available on busy weekends and holidays. However, an area of the Mountain House will always be available as a warming hut.

The Resort looks forward to a fun and successful season and are confident that all food & beverage venues will offer quality products, friendly service and a positive work environment. Once hours of operation have been established, we will be sure to forward that information on to you as well as menu items.

Ski Mountain Update

Many of us are getting inquiries about the snow conditions and opening day scenario. While the conditions are currently less than ideal, please know that a lot can happen in a short amount of time. It only takes one good storm to go from a limited opening to the start of an epic snow season.

Angel Fire Resort is still scheduled to open on Thursday, December 16. They will have a more accurate picture of what opening day will look like as we get into next week.

In the meantime, keep in mind:

  • Whatever mother nature decides to give us we will make the most of it.
  • John Burt and the snowmaking crew are working diligently to keep the snow guns going whenever temperatures allow. The Resort has snowmaking capability on 52% of the mountain. This is predominately focused on blue and green runs to set a solid base.
  • We are no worse off than the other mountains in New Mexico. In fact, Angel Fire was the sole snow beneficiary of the last few storms that rolled through the state.

In the past three winter seasons we received significant snow storms during the second week of December. We’ll keep our eyes on the patterns to see if this holds true again this season.

In the meantime, keep thinking snow and when the moment feels right do a little snow dance!
