Skiing / Snowboarding

Red River is a welcoming ski town:  It’s steeped in history, the attitude is laid back, people are friendly and, best of all, Red River Ski & Summer Area’s chairlifts are a short walk from Main Street.

State-of-the-art snowmaking and grooming make Red River Ski & Summer Area one of the best places to ski in the Southwest. It’s also one of the best places to learn to ski or snowboard. Under the tutelage of its skilled instructors, a neophyte can progress from beginner to solid intermediate – or even advanced – in record time!

Red River Ski & Summer Area offers terrain for all abilities. Novice skiers love its ski-through Moon-Star Mining Camp, a family favorite. “Riders” – free-skiers and snowboarders – love Red River’s three terrain parks from the Pot O Gold Terrain Park on Gold Rush Hill, to the more challenging Hollywood Terrain Park beneath the Platinum Chair.
