Snowshoeing
Feb 2021 • Family
We spent the day snowshoeing with our 4 year old & had so much fun! The trails were well-maintained & the staff was so friendly. My only regret is that we didn’t plan ahead to allow for a second day to go cross-country skiing—will definitely be back!

not groomed
Feb 2021
We started skiing around 9am Feb 21, 2021 and the trails were not groomed. Looks like it had been quite a while in fact since they were last groomed. Conditions were icy and dangerous for cross country. There were a couple of ambulances on the scene when were were leaving around noon. Hopefully this wasn't related to the lack of maintenance.

This was our first (in years and years) cross country ski adventure. We got lessons and they were worth every single penny. Shane was great and everyone we met along the as well. We also enjoyed all the routes. There were all levels but we stuck to the green with a little blue. Everything was groomed, clearly marked, and quiet as can be. We can’t wait to return!

Exceeded our expectations
Feb 2021
My wife and I were looking to get out of town for a few days. After Googling places to snow shoe and cross country ski, we came upon the Enchanted Forest near Red River, NM. With only a 10hr drive from Dallas, we made our reservations. The entire area of the Enchanted Forest was fantastic. They had very well marked trails for both Snow Shoeing and Cross Country skiing. There was even a mid-mountain Yurt to eat a snack and even hit the porta-potty. The facilities and equipment at the base were both excellent - everyone was very nice - plus all employees and guest adhered to COVID-19 protocols. There entire area far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return. Oh, Red River is also a super cool town - there is a small down hill resort that attracted a lot of skiers. Everything in Red River is walkable. And the drive to the Enchanted Forest was about 5-10min.

great experience~

Came with our own gear. The binding separated on one ski mid-morning. Staff rented my friend new boots and skis at a super-reasonable price so we could finish out the day and then had a great recommendation for someone to do the repair.
Great folks, great trails. Going to come back as often as we can.

Do yourself a favor and visit Enchanted Forest
Jan 2021
This is a truly enchanted forest and well worth it! We took a lesson and even though its cross-country and you think it would be an easy learn, there are quite a few downward "slopes" that you can catch some speed on so if you are new, take a lesson.
Our guide Mike was really awesome. Great teacher and very friendly.
We love this place and look forward to our next advenure to a yurt and ski at Enchanted Forest.

What a beautiful area! Just outside Red River, we easily checked in and got our snow shoes. Our guide knew SO much about the history and natural biology of the area. We even saw a small herd of Elk across the ridge. The views were astounding.

We were two couples with adult young male children who took cross country ski lessons. They learned a lot and seemed to enjoy themselves.

We had a wonderful time and recommend this area to everyone!
