The Village of Ruidoso...Living in Nature's Playground

From the slopes of Ski Apache to the thundering hooves at Ruidoso Downs Racetrack, Ruidoso is the premier year-round playground of the Sacramento Mountains! Ruidoso is a tight-knit community of longtime residents, second-homeowners and loyal visitors - all of which play a vital role in the day-to-day business that takes place in the village.

Those who live and work here are proud to call it home. Those who visit come back time and again. That says it all...

Welcome to Ruidoso - we think you will love it!
