Pick up your skis with your keys!
Condotel is the only place in Ruidoso where you can check into your rental cabin and pick up your skis and snowboards at the same time, at adjacent Rocky Mountain Sports! We know you want to maximize your vacation time, so we provide one-stop shopping to help you hit the slopes with minimal effort.
NEW THIS YEAR! As a guest of Condotel you can now purchase discounted lift tickets directly from us. These are actual lift tickets, not vouchers that you need to redeem on the mountain. In other words, you can use the provided zip ties to attach lift tickets to to your snow pants or jackets and go straight to the chair lift, when you arrive. No more waiting in long lift-ticket lines!
When you check in at Condotel you will receive a discount card that makes all the members of your group eligible for discounted lift tickets. You must show your Condotel discount card in order to take advantage of this great opportunity.
Additionally, guests of Condotel receive 20% off all rentals and purchases at Rocky Mountain Sports, which is under the same roof as the Condotel lobby. Guests of Condotel can even use the reservation form to have equipment ready upon arrival. The only thing left for you to do is settle into your comfortable rental property and do your best snow dance!
Condotel guests receive a 20% discount on equipment rentals and a 20% discount on retail purchases!

Rocky Mountain Sports is staffed with folks who “really know their stuff” when it comes to rental equipment. They will help you make the right choices in size of skis or snowboard to make your day most enjoyable. They will be sure that the boots fit properly and that they are correctly adjusted to the bindings. There are no silly questions. Ask them anything about snow play in Ruidoso and they will give you professional, knowledgeable answers.
When you rent for more than one day, your bill is not due to be paid until you are finished with the equipment. You will be charged for the equipment for the days that you have it. Many enjoy the convenient use of the lockers at Ski Apache resort. With just two quarters you can lock up your snowboard or your skis and poles in overnight storage, only steps from the slopes. Also, skis are much shorter these days than they used to be. They can usually be stored inside the car for easy transportation. If a ski rack is needed, it will be provided at no charge.
Pants ($8), jackets ($10) and helmets ($5) are also available for rent on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your 20% Condotel discount will also apply to these rentals. Rocky Mountain Sports offers for sale a variety of socks, hats, facemasks, gloves, pants, jackets, snow boots, goggles, sunglasses, and accessories.
Have some fun in the snow this winter and let the friendly, experienced staff at Rocky Mountain Sports maximize your pleasure with great service and helpful advice.

Ruidoso Snowplay Photo Gallery:
Stay at one of Condotel’s many large private homes, cabins or condos near Ruidoso around 7,000 ft – ski & snowboard at Ski Apache from 9,600 to 11,500 ft. The drive is 35 to 45 minutes to the Ski Apache parking lot. Four wheel or all wheel drive is advised for the winter months. Chains will be required on 2 wheel drive vehicles when the road is snow packed from a fresh storm, generally 10 – 15 times each winter – you just never know exactly when.
Ski Apache has invested millions into snowmaking and grooming equipment. Even when the area does not receive a lot of natural snowfall, they can make great snow on trails for all abilities.Click here for current Ski Apache conditions!
