Go tubing at Ruidoso Winter Park. There are lanes for racing your friends and a Magic Carpet conveyor belt for an uphill ride. Adrenaline junkies can descend individually, in tandem — or for the fastest and longest ride, in group clusters in a giant tube. After your chilly thrill, retreat to a warming VIP Igloo to cozy up in with a hot drink and a snack.

In the heart of southern New Mexico’s Sierra Blanca Mountains, the town bursts with outdoor recreation, cozy cabins, and made-to-order holiday cheer.” — New Mexico Magazine (Dec. 2018)
