Ruidoso Climate: A Five-season Experience
Misty Strickland, an associate broker with Pinnacle Real Estate and Development, praises the unique nature of Ruidoso, saying, “Ruidoso is truly a one-of-a-kind community. One of the things I enjoy the most about living in Ruidoso is experiencing all four seasons and all that they have to offer. The winter snows, the fall colors, the spring blooms, and the cool summer days and monsoons. And, occasionally, a fifth season between March and April of New Mexico winds.”
Ruidoso’s cooler climate, as compared to parts of Southern New Mexico that don’t benefit from Ruidoso’s altitude of almost 7,000 feet, offers warm summer days with the refreshing relief of monsoons in July and August. The average high temperature in summer is just below 80 degrees! Come winter, the average January high temperature in Ruidoso is 48 degrees with a low of about 20, but it has dropped to as low as -26 degrees in the past!

Known as “The Year-Round Playground of the Southwest,” Ruidoso boasts diverse attractions. Misty affirms, “There is absolutely something for everyone to enjoy in Ruidoso,” highlighting activities like mountain biking, hiking, skiing, swimming, hunting, and more.
From picturesque trails in the village and Lincoln National Forest to multiple lakes for summer enjoyment, Ruidoso is a magnet for tourists escaping the heat. The mild weather also makes it an ideal location for golfing practically year-round.
Entertainment options abound, including shows at the Spencer Theatre in Alto, horse racing at Ruidoso Downs Racetrack, and a plethora of dining and shopping venues. The village of Ruidoso offers abundant entertainment, festivals, and events for both locals and visitors.
