How to dress for winter in Ruidoso
Winters in Ruidoso can be sunny and mild, even if they aren’t always. Temperatures can change drastically once the sun goes down and with altitude, with one climate in town and another at Ski Apache and Sierra Blanca.
If you are heading high up, dress warmly and in layers. Use wool rather than cotton or polyester, and protect yourself from getting wet or caught in the wind. Wind chill factor will make you feel much colder than it actually is, and its effects get worse the stronger the wind.
To gear up, visit Ruidoso's Ski shops and clothing stores for shopping opportunities. Winter essentials include warm layers, a hat and gloves, waterproof jackets, cozy pullovers, wool socks and more.
