Travel Tips for Red River

Early bird gets the shortest line(s)

by pchamlis

Anyone who goes skiing appreciates the shortest possible lift lines. And, while lift lines aren't really much of a problem in Red River, you're always going to get in more skiing if you spend less time in line.

So, go out earlier and get in some quality runs before the others finish brunch, especially on the weekends. There will be more pristine powder and the slopes will be more freshly groomed, too. Like I say, when you ski, you want to SKI, not stand in line. So, my fondest memories of Red River involve skiing......lots of skiing.



Tubing - the art of sliding down a hill while riding on an inner tube was something that the kids enjoyed doing.

This activity dates back to the 1940s when winter sports were beginning to be an accepted part of the Red River scene.

In the 1960s, “Whirleybirds” were introduced to snow sport fans on Red River’s west side, beginning a tradition that lasted well into the 1990s.

Today, the latest in tubing adventure can be had at the Red River Ski Area on new high-tech tubes that glide effortlessly down the beginners slope in front of the Chalet. Activity begins around 4 PM when the skiing is done for the day. Tickets can be purchased at the Guest Services office in the lower level of the Chalet.

Uncrowded Family Skiing in Red River, New Mexico

by pchamlis

"Gentle snowy refuge just north of Taos"

A Rocky Mountain ski resort conjures up many images in your mind. There are hot spas, clubs, fancy hotels, rich people, "apres ski" activities to boggle the mind, and sky-high prices.

Red River is none of these things. It's just a simple little western village a couple of hours north of Albuquerque. This is a place where you can get a decent family condo for a price that won't break the family piggy bank. You'll find steak houses where you're expected to pitch appetizer peanut shells onto the floor.

OK, this ain't Vail or Crested Butte, folks. But, the snow is good, the lift lines are blessedly short, and the little things such as ski schools and rental facilities are fine. It's a good place to take your family for a ski vacation.

"Family Style"

I've harped Red River as THE place to take your family for a quiet ski trip. So, here is MY family, enjoying an afternoon in this western ski village, in the foothills of the New Mexican Rocky Mountains.
