Mardi Gras in Angel Fire
Every year, Angel Fire celebrates Mardi Gras, and this year will be no different with many varied activities throughout the final week of the Mardi Gras season.
To start things off this year, The Angel Fire Resort Shovel Race Championships will be held the weekend of February 11 & 12 at the Angel Fire Resort Ski and Snowboard Area. Competitors will sit on snow shovels and race down the mountain in this exciting snowsport! Spectators are welcome! The Jimmy Stadler Band will provide music for the awards ceremony in the afternoon and evening. Sunday, February 12th is a “Just for Fun” day so bring your snow shovel and try this out.
The Shuter Library Benefit Ball, “Mardi Gras with your Valentine,” will take place on Saturday, February 11th at 8 PM at the Angel Fire Resort Country Club.

Also on February 11, JAKE-FM radio of Oklahoma is hosting an acoustic concert by Casey James, who was a finalist on American Idol in the Lodge at Angel Fire Resort.
Angel Fire Resort Ski and Snowboard Area is also the only New Mexico ski area to have night skiing every weekend, throughout the season.
On Sunday, February 19, the Angel Fire Rotary will host the Angel Fire Mardi Gras Parade at 3:00 PM. Come out and celebrate with us and see the great floats we can create for this parade. Anyone can put a float in the parade. If you like – call Donna at 575-377-1100 for more information.
And then on Ash Wednesday, we rest . . . well, maybe a few runs, just for the fun of it!
