“Ski towns are typically associated with dollar signs, but if you’re craving a mountain getaway, it doesn’t have to break the bank. Let us tell you about a magical place where empty trails, wildflowers as far as the eye can see, porches ripe for wildlife watching, streets upon streets of art galleries and shops, and a cozy downtown await.” — iExplore.com
Get ready for a totally different spring break adventure this year and head for the mountains for an unforgettable (and affordable) Ruidoso family vacation.
What's the weather in Ruidoso? Check out the official Village of Ruidoso Tourism Webcam from its strategic point overlooking Midtown in the heart of Ruidoso’s shopping and restaurant district with Sierra Blanca towering in the distance.
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.
Snuggle in front of a fire. Build a snowman. Take a walk in the forest. Stargaze. Ruidoso embraces winter weather with plenty of no-cost activities to keep your vacation on budget.
A Ruidoso vacation cabin can be a fairy-tale escape — a place to curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace or conquer the nearby ski hills. Ready to cozy up to your own slice of cabin bliss? Here are a few visitor favorites to help get you started.
