There are three restaurants on the front side of the mountain, one at the summit and another on the back side. The Angel Fire Resort Hotel offers 139 spacious rooms right at the foot of the slopes. The Resort Hotel also offers a hot tub, small indoor pool, restaurants, lounge, gift shop, massage facility and more. There are also hundreds of condominiums - from studios to 3-bedroom units - in the base village and close by. There is a ski/board gear rental shop at the foot of the lifts (and several others around town).
