Sports sidelines – Nov 15



Making ski-industry history, The Teacher Pass offered by Angel Fire Resort for teachers K-12 is one of the best full season ski pass discounts in the country.  A ski-industry first, The Teacher Pass, will provide educators with a full-season of skiing with no black-out dates at a heavily discounted price of $99. The Teacher Pass will pay for itself for anyone planning to ski two or more days this winter.

The Pass special introductory price is being offered for $99 starting today through Dec. 13, the day before opening day. The Teacher Pass will increase to $199 on opening day.  Additionally, 25% lodging discounts on hotel rooms, condos, and private homes will be available on select dates for Teacher Pass holders. For more information, visit or call (855) 923-7387.
