If you have not ridden Angelfire Bike Park in Northern New Mexico, then stop what you are doing right now and plan a trip. It’s a bucket list destination.
In this episode Angelfire’s Bike Park Manager (Patrick West) and Gravity Trail Development Manager (Tucker VanOrmer) give us the inside scoop on the park’s history, operations, trail design, build process, and future plans.
Angelfire is the largest Bike Park in the Rocky Mountains. It was voted Best in the Southwest by MTBparks.com 7 years in a row. Built on land privately owned by the resort, it features a 10,650 foot summit, 2,000+ feet of vertical, 32+ trails, and 60+ miles of purpose-built, lift-served terrain with some of the best jump lines, manicured flow, and super chunk in the United States. It’s fast, incredibly fun to ride, and caters to all riders from the greenest beginner to the most seasoned shredder. The rental options for bikes and protective gear are vast, current, and well maintained. The park has a solid core of bike park instructors catering to all riding levels. The park recently opened two “bunny-hill” style trails serviced by a magic carpet named “mac&cheese” and “spicy mac” for beginner riders and kids.
And that’s not all… the resort and the local area offer an astounding amount of diverse recreational activities including; epic cross country rides, white water rafting, fly fishing, golf, zip-lining, ATV-OHV adventures, horseback rides, hiking, disc golf, and more…
(not to mention the winter activities of skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowmobile riding…)
Stop thinking about going. Just go.
