A mountain resort town, Ruidoso, New Mexico lies in the rugged Sierra Blanca mountain range of south-central New Mexico, where it merges with the Sacramento Mountains to the south. Ruidoso is a rapidly growing resort community due to the region's alpine scenery, Ruidoso Downs racetrack, and slopes of Ski Apache, the Mescalero Apache Indian-owned ski resort on the Sierra Blanca. The tribe also operates the Inn of the Mountain Gods resort in the area, which includes a casino, hotel, and golf course.
Ruidoso is home to a rich history, seasonal recreation and world class entertainment. Enjoy winter skiing or snowboarding at Ski Apache, summer at the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack and year-round on the hiking and mountain biking trails of the Lincoln National Forest. Don’t miss a show at Spencer Theater, Inn of the Mountain Gods or from some of the local troupes. Festivals abound year-round with the Ruidoso Art Festival, Festival of Lights, Golden Aspen Motorcycle Rally and Mountain of Blues Festival. Perfectly situated, our mountain resort is ideal for weddings, conventions, or family reunions and has everything including horseback riding, golfing, shopping, dining and art. Try your luck at one of the three area casinos and on the horses.
