Red River is a great place for beginners to learn to ski, and also a great town for families. There are a good number of runs for all varieties of skiers. We had booked a private lesson with the red river ski school for our granddaughters, and the instructor was great.

We love Red River. I vacationed there as a teenager and returned 20 years later with my child, husband, sister, nephew and mom. It is as quaint and cozy as it was when I was growing up. This is a great family place.

This is our third time here. Great family resort. First time we have come at spring break, so first time it was crowded. The ski/board instructors are wonderful. Ask for Warren for boarding. He made my 11 and 12 year old so comfortable and taught them so much. Thanks Warren! Hope you stay there so we can visit again. Very... More

My husband and I traveled to Red River for the first time with our 9 and 12 year old. We really enjoyed the small town! We liked that we could walk everywhere. Weather was gorgeous. Skiing was pretty good. A little icy and/or sloshy at times due to the time of year. The people in this town are very friendly.... More
