Ski runs open at Angel Fire, Sandia

ANGEL FIRE, N.M. (AP) — The list of New Mexico ski resorts open for the season is getting longer.

Angel Fire Resort in northern New Mexico and Sandia Peak Ski Area just outside Albuquerque opened Friday as the latest blast of winter crosses the state.

Many resort managers said they’re seeing some of the best conditions in more than a decade.

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque said a weak storm system is sliding into central New Mexico from the west. As much as three inches of snow were expected to fall along the Continental Divide.

Snow was also expected to reach the Interstate 25 corridor from Albuquerque south to Socorro.

Forecasters said the storm was expected to move out by Friday afternoon, and temperatures will get back to normal by today.
