Angel Fire Resort is taking carnivals to a higher level.
The resort is hosting its Winter Carnival on the mountain Thursday, Jan. 30, through Sunday, Feb. 2. It will feature a vibrant and colorful carousel for eventgoers to ride, as well as a number of carnival games with prizes along the midway. Attendees also will get to show off their ax-throwing skills in one of the activities. Popcorn, snow cones and cotton candy will add to the carnival experience.
“It was actually the idea of our new director of marketing, Greg Ralph,” said Krysty Ronchetti, Angel Fire’s public relations coordinator. “It was his brainchild. And it gives us some kind of challenge to do stuff that meets the needs of the wider audience that I would say safely are 80 percent families or probably higher than that. At least 80 percent of our guests are families, so we’re trying to find more events that tailor to all ages.”
