Come ski & ride under the stars.

Angel Fire Resort offers New Mexico’s only night skiing & snowboarding on the front side of our mountain on weekends and holidays from shortly after 5 PM. We close the mountain briefly from approximately 4 – 5 PM to allow time for our mountain crew to do a Ski Patrol sweep and a courtesy groom. Terrain includes 50 acres of groomed trails. We thank you for your patience while our Ski Patrol makes sure that all guests are safely off the mountain and our groomers make night skiing a great experience with fresh corduroy.

The cost is $24, or if you already have a day ticket, you can add Night Skiing for an additional $12.
