I have not lived in the Ruidoso community, but I have visited the area and spent a couple of overnights there. It is a beautiful area of NM. Being at a higher altitude, it almost reminded me of northern Wisconsin. There are a lot of pine trees and forested areas. We rented a small cabin, and I thought we were "up north." We were most likely there in the spring or fall and the air was clean and crisp. You really should visit and stay acouple of nights. It will be cooler in the summer and cooler in the winter - I believe they get some snow there, but not like norther NM where the ski areas are. Following is a good website to check out......http://ruidosonow.com/
