Red River

New Mexico, USA

Nicknamed the “Ski Town of the Southwest,” Red River is everything it’s cracked up to be. Located in The Carson National Forest, it’s immensely enjoyable because you can do it all without having to get in your car and drive outside the center of town. The terrain is mixed, the people are laid-back, and there are challenging runs and entertainment for skiers and snowboarders alike.

In the winter it’s all about skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling, while summertime calls for hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing or golfing. If you’re looking for a little relaxation, you can enjoy the river, go for a chair ride or just enjoy Main Street. Spas and massages are essential after a long day at Red River Ski Area. Events like the High Mountain Half Marathon, the Art and Wine Festival and Oktoberfest are well-known and highly attended.

Looking to take a day trip? Wheeler Peak is 13,161 feet above sea level and ranks as the highest peak in New Mexico, and the Red River is just 106 miles from Santa Fe. The town is serviced by a trolley and bus system that offers routes into the upper valley, making logistics an advantage Red River has over most getaway destinations.
