Winter in Red River

With over 60 years of operation as a family owned business, Red River Ski & Summer Area offers a unique affordable vacation experience surrounded by the Southern Rockies of New Mexico. Situated along the famed Enchanted Circle - near Texas, Albuquerque, Taos, and Santa Fe, you’ll find us as an escape to the mountains situated at 8,750 feet. We cherish our winters in Red River, where the sweet little ski town tradition lives on. You’ll find wide open groomers, park laps, and steep powder filled trees, all with minimal lift lines and fresh powder stashes that last days after a storm. This is a real ski town built by miners, not developers. Come check out the real thing, we’re sure you’ll fall in love with the Ski Town of the Southwest.
