Ruidoso

The Village of Ruidoso is the perfect place for your winter or summer R and R getaway. Nestled high in the Sacramento mountains of Southern New Mexico, this idyllic resort community has everything from gaming and nightlife to outdoor adventure and serene relaxation. It is virtually the year-round playground of the Southwest, only an easy hour’s drive from Holloman. The weather, scenic majesty of snow-topped Sierra Blanca and lush, cool forests make this a magnificent resort area. Many businesses in Ruidoso offer discounts to military members, so ask. During the summer, visitors flock to Ruidoso Downs to take in some of the world’s richest horse races. Other fun-seekers play beautifully manicured golf courses that provide some of the most scenic backdrops in the country. Wintertime draws skiers to the slopes at Ski Apache, a favorite of America’s powder enthusiasts. Whatever your pleasure, Ruidoso offers a treasure of activities. It’s high time for high ground. If you need to travel and enjoy the convenience of a small airport, Ruidoso’s airport in Alto connects to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. As the country’s southernmost ski area, Ski Apache, adjacent to Ruidoso, offers the best warm-weather powder skiing in the world with snowmaking on 33 percent of the Mountain. The slopes offer a mix of wide beginner slopes, tough bump runs, a huge bowl, nice cruising runs and a terrain park named “The Boneyard” with jumps, tubes and rails. Snowboarding and other snow sports are also available. Ruidoso Downs, the next-door community, features a major horse-racing track open during the warm months.
