Sitting at an elevation of 6,730 feet and nestled just below the 12,000 foot Sierra Blanca Peak, (which is part of the Sacramento Mountain Range), the Village of Ruidoso is surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest. Since the 1920’s the area has been known as “The Playground of the Southwest” as it has been a vacation destination for generations of families wanting to cool off in the summer, or experience snow in the winter. The full-time population of the Village is still under 9,000 residents, but there are many people who own 2nd homes in the area and on busy weekends, the population can swell to 30,000.
This quaint town is anything but sleepy providing year around entertainment for both the outdoor and indoor enthusiast. From two popular gaming casinos that host live concerts and the largest fireworks show in New Mexico, to the richest quarter horse race in America.
The abundant Midtown area shops offer everything from culinary stores, to fine jewelry, pottery, candles, fashions for every taste and of course tee shirts! Opportunities for dining & drinking include wine tasting, brewpubs, delightful restaurants, handmade candies, delectable cupcakes & more.

In the winter dozens of trails are available for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels at Ski Apache. When is the last time you went sledding with the family? Yup we have that also at the popular Tube & Tow located on the far north end of town.
During the summer months enjoy top rated golf courses, perfect summer temperatures to hike in the White Mountain Wilderness area or a swim at Grindstone Lake. The list goes on and on, but with so much to do the top rated activity is still relaxing and enjoying the cool pines, amazing views and abundant wildlife!
