I heard through the bark-vine that dogs were allowed at Ski Apache in Ruidoso
www.discoverruidoso.com.....so of course being the Pet Travel Reporter that I-Travelin' Jack-am.....I headed right down to Ruidoso to see what I could learn....both for me and for my 4-footed cousins who love to travel with their people too!
But being the absolutely must-be-doggone-right-on-all-my-details Pet Travel Reporter....I went right on over to the ticket counter to get the scoop. So's I asked the nice folks at the Ski Apache Ticket Counter
"Can a Dog Ride the Gondola"
And they told me "YES....dogs ARE allowed to ride their new state-of-the-art 8-passenger gondola up to the top of the mountain.
And here's the REAL kicker! Dogs ride for FREE...your person just has to sign a waiver for you to ride. So I got my ticket.....but first I thought to myself..."HMMMMM....maybe I should check out the scene BEFORE I go to the top!"
But first....maybe I should just sit here a bit and soak in the winter sun and have a nice little snack on the Deck of the Ski Apache Restaurant.....and YES....dogs are allowed here too! And bark about a view! Why I don't know what's more fun....watching the people action or eating.....NAAAAH....I know the answer to that one. I'll just take a sec and chow down on these nachos, thank you very much!
Hmmm. Maybe, just maybe I DO need lessons! But that's another day....for now, I'll just relax up here at the TOP and watch how the People do it! And maybe I'll just LEAVE skiing and snowboarding to the PEOPLE! Yup.....that's what I am gonna do! No more boarding for this dog.....
This is as close to skis as I wanna get...until I have a Ski Instructor handy to teach me the tricks! Yep..that's the plan and I'm stickin' to it by dawg!
LUV this place...can't wait to get there and relax by the fireplace in the lobby! It's especially special because they treat BOTH people and their pets royally...from the moment you step through the door into the plush, luxurious, and cozy interior. It gets a 5-PAW rating from this discriminating dog reporter!
And while I take this small break......and regenerate for tomorrow....here's what YOU can do! Tune in....on Wednesday to KASA 2 Fox TV for 2KASA Style.....and I'll be barking about this dog-fabulous trip! Then...I'll blog about Day 2 after that! So don't despair.....I'll be BARK.....I mean BACK!
DOGGY HUGS AND SLURPY KISSES! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZ Goodnight!
