For 25 Years, This Massive Tumbleweed Snowman Has Been Wishing New Mexicans Holiday Cheer

There are plenty of signs unique to New Mexico that suggest the holiday season is upon us. Catching a glimpse of the Bugg light display in Belen. Getting a whiff of biscochitos baking in an oven. Watching (or participating in) an assembly line of endless tamale making.

Hoping to build your own snowman made of, well, snow? While you may be hard-pressed to find enough snow in Albuquerque to do so, you can easily make a day trip to a frozen landscape like Angel Fire. In addition to building a snowman, this location is also the perfect spot for snow tubing. Read more in The Longest Snow Tubing Run In New Mexico Can Be Found At Angel Fire Resort.
