Dear Red River Ski & Summer Area Guests and Family…

We are thankful to be able to announce that we will open the Scenic Summer Chairlift as scheduled for May 23rd and 24th. While we are excited to be offering this activity, the health of our guests, community, and staff remain a top priority. We will be following any Public Health Orders put forth by the state of New Mexico.

Pursuant to the Public Health Order, effective Friday, May 15, 2020, please review these below guidelines that are applicable to our operations. We kindly ask all guests visiting Red River Ski & Summer Area to follow these guidelines.

  • Our buildings are required to operate at 25% of standard occupancy. To help with this requirement, we ask that you only send one member of the family in to purchase tickets or retail items. 
  • Be socially responsible and practice social distancing. Please remember to leave at least 6ft of distance between you and other guests and refrain from congregating in groups larger than five people. 
  • Use a face covering or mask when enjoying public spaces. Exceptions will be made for eating, drinking, exercising, and if a healthcare provider instructs otherwise 

We will be doing our best to keep Red River Ski & Summer Area a clean destination for guests to enjoy. Extra resources such as hand sanitizer and wipes will be readily available for guests to use. In addition, we will follow all guidelines regarding cleaning of common areas. We ask for your patience during these times as we all work together. We look forward to having you here and making your Red River memories.

To our Red River Disc Golf Family…

At the recommendation of state officials, we have made the decision to cancel the 9th Annual Drew Judycki Memorial scheduled for June 6th & 7th. The health of our community and tournament players is our top priority with this decision as the COVID-19 situation continues to develop. We will immediately begin issuing refunds to registered and waitlisted players. We’d like to thank everyone for the continued support of this incredible tournament and we cannot wait until next year.

  • Stay home when you are sick and limit close contact with other people except for the medical care that you need.

  • Cover your cough and sneezes to reduce the spread of infectious droplets and wash you hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60% to 95% alcohol.
  • Clean “high touch” surfaces daily with regular household cleaners.

  • Avoid sharing personal household items.
