“Fun Place”

Ruidoso Winter Park
Ranked #2 of 2 things to do in Alto
Attraction details

Fun place to take the kids. They have a small hill just for kids under 42" tall. Yes, it was very busy on Saturday and Sunday. The kids had a great time. The big hills were fun. The lines were long, and no, the lines do not move that fast. From the bottom to the lift is the longest wait. People are going to the bottom to get tubes and you are trying to gt to the top. But, it was fun.

If you are looking for an alternative activity for kids young to college aged, the Winter Park tube ride is a lot of fun. WARNING: For teenagers who are just starting out skiiing or snow boarding, take them to Winter Park BEFORE they learn to ski at Ski Apache. Once they get "the bug" for the grown up stuff, the tube rides may not hold their interest. This is still great fun for others or those who won't/can't ski well. Don't let the waiver process scare you either...all these places have to protest themselves these days...ENJOY!

The lines look horribly long but move very fast. Don't let looks deceive you. Runs 2 and 7 are the best. The apples with caramel, hot chocolate and funnel cakes are great snacks to warm you up.

Unfortunately when we went they did not get snow as they do each year; however, the park makes their own snow. Location is good, parking is adequate, spacing is so-so, the chutes/slides are good and adequate (they have an area for the little ones and higher/bigger ones for the adults and bigger kids), and a very convenient conveyor belt/lifts that take you up. Lines were extremely long when we went (Dec. 26). We opted to spend our time giving my daughter a good time in the kiddie section and the carnival rides which can get expensive really quick at $2 a ride.I was disappointed that they had no area for the kids to just play. My daughter was extremely excited to play with snow, make snow angels, and throw snow balls- she wasn't able to do that anywhere. Pleasant surprises: outdoor heater that you can get close to and warm up, campfire for warming up & making smores, and a small shop to buy or rent appropriate clothing. In our case, the gloves and beanie we had bought our daughter in South Texas were not enough.
