Angel Fire Property Owners BlogAngel Fire Ski ResortA virtual meeting place where Angel Fire New Mexico property owners and residents of Angel Fire share ideas and information.

Angel Fire Resort, being a New Mexico Ski Resort, has many non-resident property owners.  As a public service to the community and out of state property owners this site was created to keep out of town and out of state property owners in touch with Resort amenities improvements, village government agendas and area recreational activity schedules.

Local newspapers, dependent on Resort and local business advertising revenue, seem unable or unwilling to provide an interactive venue for Angel Fire Resort property owners and Angel Fire residents to post their own ideas and opinions on Angel Fire Village government decisions and Angel Fire Resort amenities maintenance and enhancements.

Winter Mountain Driving Tips

Car Condition - Winter Travel

  • Keep a FULL tank of gas in your car.
  • Make sure you have good tires.
  • Get a mechanic to do a winter check.
  • Make sure they look at your: battery, antifreeze, wipers, windshield fluid, ignition system, thermostat, lights, heater, brakes, defroster and oil.
  • Keep an ice scraper handy and a small broom if your area is expecting snow.

Always Carry in Your Car

  • Butane lighter and or matches.
  • Flashlight and batteries.
  • Small tool kit.
  • Booster cables.
  • Bottled water.
  • Snack bars.
  • Small shovel.
  • Snow Chains.
  • Tow Strap.
  • Small bag of sand to use as traction under your tires.

Trapped in a Snow Storm

  • Stay in the car.
  • Only leave the car if help is visible within 100 yards.
  • Display a brightly colored cloth or other sign of trouble outside your car.
  • Turn on the car’s engine for about 10 minutes each hour. Run the heater and turn on the inside light when the car is running to help keep warm.
  • Beware of carbon monoxide poisoning. Clear the exhaust pipe of snow and if necessary open a downwind window for air.
  • Watch for signs of hypothermia. That includes loss of feeling and pale color in the skin.
  • To keep warm, do exercises, huddle together and use newspapers, maps and even inside car mats.

Outdoors

  • Wear loose fitting, layered, light-weight clothes.
  • Layers can be pulled off to prevent perspiration which can quickly turn cold near the body.
  • Cover your mouth. That protects your lungs.
  • Keep dry.

Winter Driving Tips

  • Do so only during the daytime.
  • Check the news or call friends for an idea of what shape the roads are in ahead of you.
  • If going on a long trip, check the weather for your destination and places along the way.
  • It could save frustration and even time to wait. Plows could clear roads and sunlight may melt ice.

Hypothermia

  • Seek immediate help if at all possible.
  • Slowly warm the person’s body, starting with their trunk.
  • Warm up arms and legs last because stimulation of the limbs could send cold blood to the heart and cause heart failure.
  • Put the person in dry clothing and wrap their whole body with a blanket if possible.
  • Use your own body to warm them.
  • Do not give them anything with caffeine or alcohol in it. Caffeine speeds up the heart and can intensify the effects of cold weather. Alcohol slows down the heart and therefore also speeds up some effects of cold weather.
