Ruidoso, Alto and all of Lincoln County offers cool weather in the summer and fresh powder at Ski Apache (owned by the Mescalero Apache Tribe) in the winter. Springtime brings a fresh look to the area and autumn on the 12,003 foot Sierra Blanca mountain is a burst of colors from the oak, apple, poplar and our famous aspen trees.

Quick, thorough run down of an area I knew nothing about. Until this blog post. If I was on Jeopardy, for the lower level questions I could actually continue on in the match if asked about Ruidoso.
