ANGEL FIRE, N.M. (AP) — The list of New Mexico ski resorts open for the season is getting longer.
Angel Fire Resort in northern New Mexico and Sandia Peak Ski Area just outside of Albuquerque are opening Friday as the latest blast of winter crosses the state.
Many resort managers say they’re seeing some of the best conditions in more than a decade.
The National Weather Service in Albuquerque says a weak storm system is sliding into central New Mexico from the west. As much as three inches of snow were expected to fall along the Continental Divide.
Snow was also expected to reach the Interstate 25 corridor from Albuquerque south to Socorro.
Forecasters say the storm is expected to move out by Friday afternoon, and temperatures will get back to normal Sunday.
