Spent the Holidays in Ruidoso and went skiing at Ski Apache. The snow was excellent. Even with the holiday crowds there was hardly a wait on the lifts See lots of comments about beginning skiers and yes, there are, but I believe that is a good thing! Skiers and boarders alike comingled well and the grooming and the powder could .not have been better. I believe it was New Years Day and they had Indian drummers on the patio. It was really neat! Rented skis and boots and no problem. They managed the people very well!. The town of Ruidoso was fun with a lot of different restaurants to go to. I don't recall when I have enjoyed a skiing trip so much! Thank you to Ski Apache and Ruidoso for providing us with a memorable holiday!
