Potential homeowners have two options when choosing a home in Angel Fire, New Mexico. They can choose to live inside Angel Fire Resort’s boundaries or they can choose to live outside the resort boundaries. The majority of Angel Fire’s 29 square miles is inside Angel Fire Resort’s boundaries which comes with a membership, more on that later.
Properties that can be found outside of resort boundaries include a variety of homes as well as large ranches and horse properties. These properties are typically located further away from resort amenities and town center.
Living inside the resort brings you closer to the town center and all the activities like skiing, golfing, biking, hiking, and fishing! All property owners within Angel Fire Resort boundaries, whether land, condo, or home, automatically become Base Members for a required annual membership of $1,305, as of 2017. This was put into place by the Association of Angel Fire Property Owners (AAFPO). Base membership benefits include a 20% discount on daily ski lift tickets, complimentary nordic center, pool and fitness, tennis, hiking trails, hourse stable privileges and more.
For an additional $1,530 per year, more enthusiastic members have the option of upgrading to Platinum Membership ($2,835 annually). In addition to Base Membership benefits, Platinum Membership benefits include UNLIMITED skiing, biking, and golf, preferred parking, a seasonal ski tun up, as well as a 20% discount on all regular-priced purchases on resort property including hotel, restaurants, retail, zipline, golf, and more. Becoming a resort member also makes sense for families since the annual membership cost is per household regardless of the number of unmarried dependents under the age of 23. The more family members you have, the better the value! For a complete list of amenities, visit Angel Fire Resort membership page here.
Please note that membership is required for every property owned within Angel Fire Resort’s boundary. For example, if you own a lot, condo, and home, you would be required to pay 3 base memberships.
Finally, Angel Fire tends to have lower property taxes when compared to the rest of the country, especially Texas, so homeowners should view membership cost as a tax that keeps resort amenities in good shape and protects their investment.
