Texan here... I took the family to Winter Park this past season... and they loved it.. It was actually the kids first time to see snow.. anyhow this year we planned on going back to Winter Park as that is where my parents took me growing up... but this year we decided to invite the "in-laws" to go with us. They accepted and the planning began. My Mother-in-law then asked, "have you considered AngelFire instead of Winter Park? it would cut down the driving considerably...and I have some friends who say they really enjoy it there...) seeing that my pipe dream is to one day own some property or at least a condo in a ski area, going to see a new ski resort would help me to know if there is life outside of Winter Park so to say. I must say I have been pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the AngleFire area. The mountain does not look challenging, but being that my kids are just starting, this might be ideal. Anyhow I just wanted to see if any of you have any insight on the area, and possibly some vacation ideas. Since Taos and Red River are so close, we are hoping to ski at all three areas that week. My main concern is "will there be snow" I am just ignorant about NM snowfall. looking at past reports it seems as though we will be fine. All this El Nino talk also has me wondering if perhaps this might be a awesome year to be in NM. El Nino seems to produce more precipitation in the southern regions of the US.
Thanks for any inputs or suggestions you might have
