Great town, everything withing walking distance for the most part. The only downfall is after a long day enjoying various activities the whole town shuts down (9pm). So you better hustle to the hotel & get cleaned up if you're hoping on catching dinner out. With kids that can be a tricky endeavor. On Sundays....forget it!

Stayed at a resort right next to one of the lifts and really enjoyed the skiing. Skied three days straight and had good grooming and diversity of trails. Will definitely return.

We have come to Red River down through the years and love the family feel of the mountain. The lodge is perfect for watching your family ski if you aren't joining them on the mountain. We even took a 2 year old on the magic carpet to begin teaching him to ski and it was a perfect beginner run!

My husband, daughter and I are finishing up three days of skiing at Red River. The first day was spent on the bunny slope and Goldrush. My husband, who grew up in Durango, taught my daughter and practiced with her. I've skied several times and spent the day warming up. Day Two, we went to the top and skied blues... More

I've been here twice now. Once with my parents and brother, and now once with my husband and children. Our family chose to go without ski school and I'd say we did quite well without it. My 17 yr old and 8 year old picked it up very easily. While the 8 yr old was too afraid to leave the... More

We just returned from our trip to Red River. I am a type III skier, been to Apache, Taos, Angel Fire, Monarch, Crested Butte, Winter Park, Breck, and Keystone, so I feel fairly qualified to review a mountain. For an average skier and above, the mountain is fine. I wasn't able to run the blacks like I normally prefer because... More

We skied here the week after Christmas 2016 with our 2 teenage sons (19 and 17). My husband and I skied. The boys did snow boarding. They were beginners at snow boarding, but picked it up quickly and had a great time. Green trails were nice and long. Blue and black were nice and steep. Easy in and out. Lines... More
