It seems that dining options are in the town at the base..

Any Top Tips?

Tubing is offered daily at 4:15pm for one hour. If they don't sell any tickets by 3pm they don't run the session, but if they sell out there will be two sessions, so get there early and get your tickets!.

Can I get one of those?

    A nice place to Ski within driving distance for us. Everyone is helpful and friendly. The parking lot was muddy and the roads in and out to the lifts had many potholes. The bathrooms are a tad bit small but clean. The crowd was decent and not overcrowded. Overall we had a great time ! We would come back again.

    I love this mountain and town. I've lived here 13 years and have skied every one in New Mexico, but none more than Red River. The town is awesome. We stay at the Best Western River Edge and that place rocks. You walk to the main lift from any room with ski boots on. That's slope side if you ask me for a hundred bucks a night. You get free cooked to order breakfast and they let you bring your dog!!! My wife is a non skier. She passes the time during my ski days by walking the dog and relaxing by the river. We don't drink at bars but always...Read More

I love this mountain and town. I've lived here 13 years and have skied every one in New Mexico, but none more than Red River. The town is awesome. We stay at the Best Western River Edge and that place rocks. You walk to the main lift from any room with ski boots on. That's slope side if you ask me for a hundred bucks a night. You get free cooked to order breakfast and they let you bring your dog!!! My wife is a non skier. She passes the time during my ski days by walking the dog and relaxing by the river. We don't drink at bars but always eat out. Our favorite spot is Timbers. Once you park your car at the hotel, you never have to move it until you leave. Everything is walking distance. Stuff is relativity priced for as resort town, but not that bad at all. We always show up prepared or stock up at Taos Wal Mart before we get to town. Eat lunch at Shot Gun Willies. It's half the price of the "Lift House" and way better!
So the mountain is not the most challenging, but staying by that river, next to the lift makes up for it. We were there last weekend and got 14 inches of snow Friday into Saturday. I was first on the lift Friday and last on Saturday. So, again, that rocks. I think this place is an awesome kept secret.
