Written Report

On Thursday, May 19, at 8:00am, the Carson National Forest will implement a stage 3 forest closure. This order prohibits access to all National Forest System lands, roads, and trails within the boundary of the Carson National Forest. Activities such as hiking, fishing, biking, camping, off-roading, and horseback riding on Carson National Forest lands are prohibited. The closure will be rescinded after significant moisture has been received and overall conditions improve.

Red River Ski Area operates under a special use permit on the Carson National Forest and as such, access to our permit area, including but not limited to, ski trails, the Red River Nature Trail, and the Summit Hiking Trail is prohibited. Operations for the Scenic Summer Chairlift, Hidden Treasure Aerial Park, Summer Mountain Tubing, and Mini Golf will be evaluated weekly as conditions and resources may change. The Scenic Summer Chairlift will not open as scheduled on Memorial Day weekend.

The Pioneer Flyer will open for daily operations on June 10th as scheduled. During the month of June, a portion of each Pioneer Flyer ride will be donated to the All Together NM Fund.

Our thoughts are with the many New Mexicans who have lost their homes, the firefighters working tirelessly, and our friends at Sipapu as they work to protect the ski area, all from the Hermits Peak & Calf Canyon Fire. 

Please remember that within the Town of Red River, all open fires of any kind are prohibited. Obey restrictions, make smart decisions, and be safe.
