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.
We are confident we can start to provide answers and outlining initial expectations for the upcoming winter season. More detailed information and pricing is outlined below or has been updated throughout our website.
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!
President & General Manager
With the State of New Mexico, we have agreed to adhere to COVID-safe practices which includes limiting our capacity. We anticipate 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. There will be dates when products will only be available for purchase online in advance. 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. Due to the capacity restrictions on these buildings we need to ensure that those guests who are skiing or snowboarding will have access for Food & Beverage services or warming up. Plan to arrive in your winter gear or use your car as a base lodge as changing will not be permitted inside our buildings.
Because of limitations imposed by the Public Health Order, advance online purchases are strongly recommended this season. More importantly, if you plan to visit during the dates outlined below...
You must purchase in advance online.
Christmas & New Year's Holiday: Dec 20, 2020 - Jan 2, 2021

Please take note of the tips below to ensure you have a seamless transaction when purchasing online.
- If you are experiencing problems with our website, please note that due to COVID restrictions, multi-day products are not available. When purchasing online, Lift Tickets must be purchased one day at a time. Add Lift Tickets for your first day on snow for each guest in your party. 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.
