The Coldest City in the Nation

Yep, you heard right: last week Angel Fire wan announced the coldest city in the nation for three days straight by several news and weather channels. Rumor is that one of our days was even announced colder than the thermometer placed in Antarctica! This extremity of cold weather was completely unexpected for those of us in the valley. Last year was one of the warmest New Mexico has seen in years, since about 1895, and we didn't receive any measurable amounts of snow until December! But temperatures have been well below 0 for the past week, even reaching into -33, and experts say we gon't get a break for another week or so. In fact, this weekend we are expecting snow, wind, and white-outs.


But don't let this scare you away from visiting the quant town of Angel Fire! Just let it encourage you to rent a cozy house, buy a bottle of wine, and sit by the fire for a few days. And with all the new snow predicted for this weekend, the slopes next week will be powdery and ready for new skiers. So get in touch with a New Mexico Mountain Properties agent to start your hunt for the greater indoors. Find that beautiful house on the Angel Fire ski mountain to watch the snow gather on the trees, or that home in the valley to see wildlife scanter around. No matter what suits your family the best, we can find it for you.
