Summer at Red River Ski Area

Red River Ski Area offers plenty of fun activities all summer long. Chair lift rides have always been an easy way to sightsee and maybe spot a few critters.

The Tip Restaurant has burgers, soups, deli-type selections and drinks. Visitors can sit on the large deck with views of Gold Hill and the Carson National Forest. Mountain bikers and hikers can also use the top of the lift as a departure point for numerous trails in the Carson National Forest.

Disc golfers can challenge themselves on a seasonal course just off the summit. The course is free to play if you hike or bike to the top. Discs are available for sale or rent at the Tip Restaurant.

Finally, Red River Ski Area has the longest summer tubing tracks in the country. The tubing lanes are made out of a hard plastic that’s fast when it’s cool outside, slower when the sun is shining. In addition to the Gold Rush Hill lanes, there are also Baby Blue tubing tracks that are aimed at kids age 4 and older.
