2020/2021 Winter Season

Our Red River Promise

To our Red River Ski & Summer Guests, Staff, and Family…

Our Red River Promise is simple. We are still Red River Ski & Summer Area and we will prevail. For over 60 years we remain an independent, family owned resort. Our lineage and history runs deep in our soul. We are proud of our roots and thankful for the growth those roots have provided us. We remain committed to the generations of guests that return each year and the passionate locals that call our special town home. Now, more than ever, there is no room for ‘I’ here. Guests, community, and staff have all made Red River what it is today. It will take all of us to overcome the challenges ahead. The most important takeaway going into this season is that we are grateful for everyone in our Red River family, thank you for your continued support. 

We all have a responsibility this ski season. Expect changes and respect any new requirements that allow us to open and stay open. These changes are a necessity for the safety of our guests, community, and staff. Our senior leadership team has worked diligently with Ski New Mexico and the State of New Mexico to develop the most effective COVID-safe practices for the ski season. We are appreciative of the work that has been completed by all entities involved to ensure we can ski and snowboard.

From a safe distance, we look forward to welcoming you back to the slopes and to the Red River family. Stay safe, be kindhearted, and keep thinking snow!

Best regards,
Linton Judycki
President & General Manager

Opening Weekend | December 4th-6th

We have approval from the state to open! Our 2020/2021 season kicks off tomorrow, Friday December 4th! Due to the short timeframe, we will only be offering Lift Tickets and access to restrooms. Gold Chair and Platinum Chair will be servicing 7 trails and Pot O’ Gold Terrain Park. We will be open December 4th-6th then open daily beginning December 11th.

Advance purchases, online or over the phone are required this season. Lift Tickets must be purchased online no later than the night before, if still available.

We will provide an update next week on our plans for Lessons, Rentals, and Food & Beverage. Please remember that face coverings are required at all times while visiting Red River Ski & Summer Area and to practice physical distancing by staying six feet away from others. We look forward to seeing you out on the slopes enjoying turns in our fresh mountain air!

Reduced Capacity

With the State of New Mexico, we have agreed to adhere to COVID-safe practices which includes limiting our capacity. We will be adhering to a 25% limit on our daily maximum uphill capacity based on open lifts. Based on historical data, there are multiple time periods that we anticipate selling out. Because of this, we encourage you to consider visiting during the week or non-holiday weekends. Please understand that our buildings will not be the place to be used for leisure activities or watching your family ski or snowboard. Plan to arrive in your winter gear and use your car as a base lodge for changing, eating, and warming up.

Plan Ahead

Because of limitations imposed by the Public Health Order, advance purchases, online or over the phone are required this season. You must purchase Lift Tickets, Lessons, and Ski & Snowboard Rentals prior to arrival. Regardless of when you choose to visit...

You must purchase in advance online or over the phone.

There is a pull down menu which will allow you to add multiple Lift Tickets for each age category. After the quantity of Lift Tickets for each category is confirmed, it will give you the option to add Ski & Snowboard Rentals. Once all guests in your party have been added for the first day on snow, click View Itinerary in the pop up window to return to the calendar view to select your next day on snow.
