CONFRONT THE DARKNESS – “AN AERIAL NIGHTTIME ADVENTURE”

High Country Ski Rentals Says “I Know Jo, Do You?”

Giraffe, Jo & Bi-Bi (Co-Owner)

High Country Ski has changed locations, expanded their hours and added a toy store. On June 1, 2017 they opened their doors in the new location at 48 N. Angel Fire Rd. (upstairs) to become a year round business with toys, candy and musical instruments. They will continue to be a full service ski and snowboard rental/service shop, as they have been for the past 26 years. But instead of being open only during ski season, they wanted to add something that Angel Fire did not have, not only for their tourist and guests, but also for the Angel Fire locals. With proof that you are a local, High Country Ski will give you a 10% discount.

Inside of the store, I was pleased to see the large selection of merchandise they are carrying. There are Ty stuffed animals of all varieties. Even Disney Movie characters are there. They stock Melissa & Doug, Angel Fire t-shirts, board games, puzzles, even sunglasses, and much much more. For your sweet tooth there is salt water taffy, fudge and other candies lining the counters. They even stock musical instruments- horns, ukuleles, guitars and more. Plus they carry guitar strings and accessories. It’s true, you don’t have to drive to Santa Fe when you break a guitar string anymore!

Bi-Bi and her husband Chris have operated High Country Ski for four years. Bi-Bi grew up in the store. It was first opened by her parents after they moved to Angel Fire in 1979. She loved working and helping out while she was growing up, so when it was time for her parents to retire, it was only natural that Bi-Bi would want to continue the family business. She loves working in retail because she loves working with people.

High Country Ski will be open 7 days a week through the summer season, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Then she plans to close one day per week in the off season. Please stop by and say hello, spend a little money and take home real goodies. And don’t forget to sign up for the end of summer giraffe give away! (The one pictured with us above)
