We're a big mountain hug, located in the Southern Rockies, just north of Taos, smack dab in the middle of the town of Red River, New Mexico. We are a warm and friendly escape where you will always feel like part of our family. We offer winter & summer fun for everyone. We're THAT place your family raves about.

We look forward to our annual family trip to Red River every year! The ski area is welcoming and fun for all skin levels. The only worry I have about the mountain is that there doesn't seem to be enough people to actually enforce the areas marked as slow areas for new skiers. With young children, it is worrisome to...

We have skied here for 3 years. It has areas for all levels from beginner lessons to those who like adventure. The chalet is in a great location and perfect to meet up with those on the slopes.

Been coming here since '75. It's has only gotten better. Wes with customer service is amazing. Made our kids rescheduling for day care painless and super Dave hooked up with great equipment.

My family of five (hubby, me, kids ages 10, 8, 6) took our first ski trip to Red River over Christmas. It had been over 20 years since my husband and I skied and the kids never. This was a great place to learn, with the friendliest people anywhere. From the moment we got there - even before going inside... More

This was my first time skiing... and RRSA was awesome!! They were so friendly and so helpful. My husband booked our private ski lesson in advance and we filled the waiver out online, so that was a breeze. I purchased lift/rental tickets via groupon and they were very accommodating of that. Our ski instructor Phil was awesome too! The slopes... More

We like to come to Red River this time of year because there is no crowd. Between New Years and Mardi Gras, at time the only people on the slopes were us.
