I believe it's a better place to vacation than live full time as well.

Expensive home prices.

Median is 349,000 compared to Las Vegas 128,000. Aztec 150K, Santa Fe 330K. Just got that from the web. Could be right, could be wrong. Median is where 50% are above and 50% below.

Default Angel Fire?

Good spot to retire?

You close to retirement?

I would not really want to retire in Angel Fire, but it is suitable for some people.

Not far from it but was using shorthand for someone over 50 (me) not needing a job there.

For me, I would agree with Poncho.

But hey CAVA... are you an avid skier & golfer? Have you been up to Angel Fire in your travels?

We are certainly looking to Angel Fire for retirement skiing since it is the closest ski area to our home.

No, that's an area of Northern NM I've not been to. However, I figured since it has a ski resort it must have pretty decent recreational and other amenities. Was hoping some locals such as yourself could fill in some of the blanks.

I'm a snowboarder, not a skier, as well as a golfer and tennis player. I keep scaring my wife with the idea of quitting life to join the senior snowboard circuit, if there ever is such a thing.

Why would it not appeal to you versus other places in NM? The average age there of 46 versus other parts of the state seems to indicate it attracts an older crowd.

And there is only 1 registered sex offender so safe trick-or-treating!

Angel Fire is a ski resort rather than a town, IMHO. But for a snowboarder/golfer, it could be a good match. There are some nice log homes up there. I am far from familiar with Angel Fire since we have only gotten up there occasionally over the years. When we retire, tho, I hope to skate ski up there, since they have groomed skate ski trails.

Do you like high elevation & snow? It beautiful high country.

As long as I can ford the streams to get there. From the (lack of) responses I've seen so far, its obscurity intrigues me. Interesting that the population declined 6% from 2000 to 2008.
