Where to wheel in New Mexico? preferrably around Roswell!

I am thinking about taking a winter wheelin trip to New Mexico in January and I hope to do some wheelin and snow boarding. I dont want to travel much more than 500 miles(+ or - 100 miles) from my house, mainly cuz I only want to do a 1 day drive. It is exactly 507 miles from my front porch to down town Roswell. Can someone help me out! Thanks!

Ski Apachie is 12 miles outside of Ruidoso. I have a house there that we visit from time to time.

Dude... Las Cruces.


Check this guy out. He has a ton of good trail ingormation including GPS Coord's. When you read his reviews keep in mind that rain out hear changes trails QUICK! One day it could be a 1, the next time a 3.

Hope this helps
