The ski area is wonderfully maintained and the staff extremely friendly. Everyone working the ski area and I do mean everyone, ticket staff, ski rental staff, lift operators, cafe workers, etc..., were all incredibly kind and helpful. The slopes were clean, well marked, and fun to ski!

Returned to Red River on what it becoming a yearly ritual. We really love the family atmosphere and slopes that are easy enough for once-a-year Texas skiers and still challenging enough for my husband. Looks like our granddaughter has become his ski partner while my daughter and I continue to hone our ski skills on the greens and blues. Special... More

Have been to Red River off and on for 30+ years. Winter is absolutely glorious there. No crowds, friendly locals and some of the best scenery anywhere in the Rockies. Took a "tune up" ski lesson with Bob; he was great. After Nat's accident a few years ago she became very hesitant on the slopes. Within an hour, Bob brought... More

I grew up coming to Red River with my family and always had alot of fun. It's been several years, but I got to visit Red River this past weekend with my husband and his sister, nephews and Mom. I couldn't have asked for a better trip! Things started off great by booking a condo super close to the lifts... More

I have been coming to RR since I was little and now I'm able to bring my kids and we have had an amazing time. They have a great mix of green/blue runs that will keep you going all day long. My kids love it and look forward to coming back next year!

Went with many beginners and felt that several of the greens would have been perfect, but they were at the top of the mountain. In order to get to those greens, you had to ski down the bottom of a black to get to the lift. No big deal for most, but true beginners do not have that confidence level... More

We were very happy with our ski vacation at Red River. This was perfect for our 3 generation ski vacation, grandkids 1.5 and 3.5 yrs old and grandparents 70. Our son took 3 one hour ski lessons with Coach Miller and Coach Evan, both were awesome with him! It was his first time on skis and they helped create a... More

Snow was very good. Nearly all the runs were open, plenty of snow on the black slopes. Not many people there so no lines. They are just missing out on some good skiing! Only complaint is the SLOW internet everywhere in town. That makes us want to go to another ski area that has decent internet speeds. Most places the... More
