Angel Fire, NM
It's been years that we've been hearing that we should be running a camp at Angel Fire in New Mexico, and we're so excited to say that it's now happening.
The bike park has a great variety of downhill trails for all levels -- beginner through advanced -- and one of the best dedicated teaching areas for drops and jumps that we've seen. There are also beginner and intermediate cross-country trails heading out right from the base with short and long loops, lots of flow, some steeps and other technical challenges, and great scenery.
As always, we’re planning technical skill development sessions in the mornings, small group instructional rides in the afternoon, and a program featuring maintenance clinics, bike set up, snacks, drinks and social time on Saturday evening.
At the Angel Fire camp, participants can choose between two days of lift-accessed downhill riding, two days of cross-country riding, or one day of each. One bike park lift ticket will be included at no extra cost, and additional tickets will be offered at a discounted rate.
Angel Fire is in a desert, even though it's also located in a high altitude forest, and late September is one of the most beautiful times of year. The resort staff have already been super helpful in setting things up, so expect good deals on accommodations and delicious food too.
During the camp weekend, Angel Fire Bike Park is providing participants with a coupon good for 10% off all retail merchandise, as well as offering 25% off standard and high performance bike rentals. Please email them directly to reserve your bike in advance, and mention that you're part of the Trek Dirt Series program.
