What’s Happening This Summer?
Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime…..time to pack away your skis and snowboards and get ready for a fun-filled season. There is so much to do this summer!

(Father’s Day Tournament-June 15, Holy Angel’s Catholic Mission Tournament- June 21, National Veteran’s Wellness & Healing Tournament- July 21) Hit the tennis courts and check out their webpage to find a list of tennis clinics for all age levels. Maybe you’re more of a cyclists, be it motorcycle or bicycle, Angel Fire is the place to be this summer. The Bike Park at the Angel Fire Resort is open daily. Either bring your own bike and equipment or rent from the Bike Park Bike Shop, The Trailhead, Cottam’s of Angel Fire, or Mountain Sports of Angel Fire. Maybe you just need to put on your hiking shoes and trek up the mountain. Do you want a group to walk/run with? Meet at Mountain Sports every Thursday morning at 7:30 am and join the Couch to 5k Road Runners group. (Getting into shape can be fun whether you’re a beginner or an expert.) And any of the before mentioned sports stores have the gear you need, including High Country and Winter Sports.
Book a four-wheeler adventure at Angel Fire Excursions or Bobcat Pass, go horseback riding with Roadrunner Tours, or get your adrenaline pumping on the Rio Grande River whitewater rafting with Big Billy’s Raft Tours or Far Flung Adventures. Not enough yet? Everyone should try sailing across the mountain on the Zipline Tour. Get your body moving every Monday night this summer with Ball Room Dance classes taught by Diane Peterson in Elements at the Angel Fire Country Club. Summer is a time to laugh, enjoy, and have fun as you soak up the sunshine or bask in the views!
Do you want a milder adventure? Stick a worm on your hook and cast it into Monte Verde Lake, Eagle Nest Lake, or Cimarron Creek. Streit Fly Fishing will provide guides & equipment or enjoy a guided fishing trip on Eagle Nest Lake with Turquoise Trout. Drive down Hwy 434 to feed the Alpacas at Victory Ranch in Mora. Book a painting class at Katherine’s Fine Art or Binford-Bell Studios. Beginning July 5, every Friday night in July, enjoy Movies Under the Stars at the base of the mountain at Angel Fire Resort.
Take a day to relax and be pampered. Have a massage at Kathy Dunbar’s Body Mechanics, get your hair and nails done at Studio 434, then wander over to Enchanted Circle Pottery or read the book you checked out at Shuter Library. And to make your summer memories last a lifetime, call Wende Woolley Photography to capture the moments!
