Property description

Our comfortable condo in the Gold Creek building is very close to the Ski lifts, including the high speed quad, the 'Chili Express'. We measured the distance with a laser rangefinder, and it is only 280 yards to the Chile lift line.

Great views of Wheeler peak from here, and summers are delightfully cool and refreshing at 8600 feet elevation. Get away from that Texas and Oklahoma heat for a while, and enjoy golf, fishing, horseback riding and hiking in the beautiful Moreno valley of northern New Mexico.

The unit has no AC.... even in the summer, it is cool with a window open. Climb the tallest summit in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, at over 13000'. Fishing for trout and yellow perch is terrific in Eagle Nest Lake, and anglers can ply the forest streams for coldwater trout. Hunters will find abundant elk, some deer and blue grouse nearby on National Forest land. The fall is particularly breathtaking, with the aspens coloring the mountains in a golden patchwork, and the wily bull elk bugling in the distance....a uniquely wild sound of the mountains.

In the winter, skiing is king, and snowboarders love the new terrain parks. Ample snowmaking will keep your family on the slopes even when other resorts run out of snow. This unit is close enough to head home for lunch and avoid those overpriced burgers at the slopes. If your younger skiers tire before the lifts shut down, they can find refuge and snuggle up in front of the toasty wood stove and enjoy a few cartoons or movies (DVD or VCR). The unit has electric radiant heat throughout, but the wood stove is more fun! Firewood is stacked behind the condo building.

Shoppers and historians will enjoy Taos, a mere 35 minutes or so away, with many artisans shops, restaurants, and a lengthy history going back to the Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago. The area is so appealing that many movie stars have their homes here, including Julia Roberts. Or head down to Santa Fe for even more variety, about 90 minutes away.

Note: Our prices are listed below. We do not collect taxes (typically another 12.5%), nor extra booking fees. We do charge a $75 cleaning fee and $50 for each well trained dog you bring along.

No telephone, bring your cell phone.

Please note: We consider reservations confirmed at the time we receive payment. Until that time, dates from your inquiries are not guaranteed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Angel Fire is a family oriented ski and snowboard area, the best one for families in New Mexico... and it has the fastest lifts! So when we bought a ski condo, naturally it was in Angel Fire. Our kids were 6 and 8 years old at the time. We also love the hiking and fishing in the area, and enjoy the wonderfully cool summers as a getaway from Albuquerque. We like to go backpacking up Wheeler peak and camp in a secluded basin, and watch bighorn sheep from our camp. Our kids are teenagers now, and they out ski us easily, but no problem... we meet up at the condo when they make it back.

Why the Owner Chose Angel Fire:
Best place in NM.... a very friendly community. Angel Fire offers the best all around, year round recreation opportunities.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our place is so close to the lifts that we can go back to the condo for a break, nap or lunch and then continue skiing afterward.
