It’s Live Music At Its Finest!

  When Forest Huval – pronounced Who Val – first came to Red River in 2012 as part of Al Berard’s Cajun band, the accordion player extraordinaire was 17 years old and had never skied in his life. The drummer with the band offered to teach him everything he needed to know and told him “I got this.” The duo rode the chairlift to the top.

Eyes wide open, Forest managed to avoid the skiers in front of...

Mardi Gras – February 8-13

  What do you call six days filled with fun, food and frivolity in the middle of a snowy winter in Red River, New Mexico? Mardi Gras in the Mountains!

Getting There Is Half The Fun

  Starry, starry night… and fine dining! For a truly magical experience, check out the Snow Coach Dinner Tour at Red River Ski & Summer Area, a two-hour-long adventure that starts from the Main Chalet and ascends 1,600 vertical feet to the Ski Tip Restaurant. The sun was beginning to set as my son William and I rode with a group up the mountain but we made it to the Tip in time to see a 360-degree view that included Gold Hill and Wheeler Peak. According to host and Chef Kai Dunbar, “The first tour of the evening, you get to view the sunset from the summit.” Guests choose...
