Angel Fire Resort located in Angel Fire, NM about 93 miles north of Santa Fe is honoring the Mayan doomsday with their “End of Days” Ski Pass. The Mayan doomsday is the belief that the world as we know it will come to an end on December 21, 2012. Angel Fire is confident that this prophecy is in fact false and as a result is offering a season pass that is valid for the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 ski seasons as well as next summer for $399 if purchased before October 31, after that it’s $499. Buy the pass here.
