This is most definitely a scenic town; in fact, it was recently named one of the most popular mountain towns in the country. Situated in the Sierra Blanca Mountain range in the southwest portion of the state, this resort region hosts tourists looking to hike, mountain climb, bike and of course ski. With Ski Apache in their backyard, the folks in Ruidoso have access to some of the world’s best southern skiing.
The bustling little mountain side town is also very much about arts and entertainment. Visit Midtown for the shopping, galleries and food. The casinos here stay open all night, and the Spencer Performing Arts Center plays hosts to some of the most popular plays currently on Broadway.
  • MOUNTAINS

    Ruidoso offers the mountains as an outdoor playground in the summers and winters. Ski Apache is only a 30-minute drive from town.

  • HIKING & BIKING

    These are two very popular Ruidoso activities. When not in full-blown ski mode, Ski Apache provides plenty of trails for both hikers and bikers. They also have both zipline and gondola events and activities available.

  • HORSE RACING

    Besides their mountain-related activities, Ruidoso is an active horse racing region. The Ruidoso Downs Race Track features events which include the world’s richest quarter horses. There is always plenty of action at the track.

  • LINCOLN

    Just a few minutes drive east is the historic Lincoln. This is thought to be one of the most genuine old west towns still in existence. See where the Lincoln County War took place and where Billy the Kid once made his great escape from the courthouse. It really is like stepping back in time.

THE WEATHER
  • The two best times to visit are winter and summer. Winter visitors come for the skiing and snow sports.

  • Spring is an off-season. The weather is very mild and dry. April averages highs in the mid-60s.

  • Summer is a beautiful season to visit the area. The higher elevation means cooler temperatures than most of New Mexico. Summers average daily highs around 80 degrees.

  • Fall is very pleasant. Early fall can be a good time to see the changing of the colors in the mountains.
