Posted August 27, 2012 By High Country Posts

Ruidoso, NM (August 27, 2012) – The Ski Run Road (NM 532) is now open for use up to mile marker 10.  Visitors will need to turn around at Windy Point Vista.  Oak Grove Campground is also open for camping, although the White Mountain Wilderness Area remains closed and there is no public access to Ski Apache due to the Little Bear Fire.
