Locale

The western edge of the property fronts Highway 64 about 2.5 miles north of the town of Angel Fire and the Angel Fire Ski Resort, offering alpine skiing, snowboarding, nordic skiing, kids tubing, sledding, ziplining, golf, and tennis.

This part of New Mexico is known for its friendly, laid-back western authenticity. The area was called “angel fire” by the Ute Indians, who marveled at the valley sunsets as if fire was bestowed in the sky from the angels in heaven.

Climate

Situated at 8,500 feet, Saladon Creek Ranch offers respite from the summer heat, as temperatures rarely exceed 80 degrees.

Transferable landowner tags are available for bull and cow elk.

Fishing

There is excellent fishing for rainbow trout, pike, koho, and kokanee salmon minutes away at the 2200 acre Eagle Nest Lake. The Cimmaron River tailwater, just below Eagle Nest dam, offers some of the finest fly fishing in the state of New Mexico with browns and rainbows up to 18”.

Recreation
