There is a plethora of recreational activities available including world-class downhill skiing, snow fun, horseback riding, tennis, disc golf, fishing, hiking and horse racing. Golf enthusiasts may choose from several championship courses in the Ruidoso area.
On our grounds you will find easy access to Carrizo Creek, with thoughtfully placed benches for quiet reflection. Common areas include wide expanses of lawn, flower beds, picnic tables and BBQ grills. We are adjacent to Lincoln National Forest with its many hiking trails.
Over 30 ducks gather at the creek each morning around 9am and 5pm for feeding.
Deer and fawns come down the mountain in morning and late afternoon from behind the condos.
Woodpeckers, chipmunks and squirrels feed on ledges and railings throughout the property.
Hummingbirds gather in abundance in our flower beds.
