Angel Fire Bike Park

Want to knock the dust off your DH rig? Or maybe you just want to try out your new steed for the season? Summer is right around the corner and your buddies want take the first road trip of the season, what better place to clear your head than the new and improved Angel Fire Bike Park.

Our lifts are opening Memorial weekend May 24th- May 28th. The weekend will be filled with plenty of fun things to do such as: the new Strength and Numbers movie premier by Anthill Films, Dash “4” Cash Downhill, live music, Fireworks, Kids crit race, camping and more.
Last year the trail crew built over eleven miles of trail, making this season the biggest to date!

With over 40 miles of trail, and 24 miles of new trail this year on the tip of the shovel to be made in 2012, Angel Fire Bike Park is making a big statement in the bike park industry this year. Plans this year include; major expansion in Candyland, new 12 mile xc loop on the backside of the mountain, four new gravity trails, the completion of boulder dash, upgraded drop zone, and last but not least, improvements to all existing trails with a big budget for bridges!

Bike park director Hogan Koesis says, "Senior management wants to see 100+ miles within the next few years, a daunting task, yes, but we've got an ambitious trail crew this year, and a ton of resources to throw at the project, so we're all super stoked to be a part of the revolution that this mountain has been waiting on for quite some time”.

Lift-tickets are still cheap at $26 a day and a season pass is only $229, which includes three free days at Trestle Bike Park. Angel Fire Bike Park is also offering great deals on stay-and-ride packages starting at $59pn/pp.

 So there's a bike park opening somewhere on the surface of the planet? Or at least I assume that it is on the Earth. Either way, the location is secret. Shhhh.

Oh wait, I see. Second to last line of the article finally says where the park is.
