The staff was amazing, they worked hard to accommodate my 98 year old grandmother onto the ski lift and took extra precautions for her. The mountain was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen....totally worth every penny!

We come here every year- If your looking for a cute resort town in the mountains it doesn't get better than Red River. The stream runs thru town and there is lots of wild life. We had to stop for a deer with two babies walking down the middle of the street. It has a great main street with lots... More

Second summer in RR and we love it. There for the LJT music festival and it couldn't have been better. Town folks are friendly, camped at Roadrunner RV park and the weather was perfect.

We just left this great little town. If you want an adventurous place to visit there is a variety of fun to be had in Red River. A few that we tried were; a jeep tour into the mountains, a ride on the ski lift, horseback riding in the mountains. One can fish, 4x4, ride ATV'S, hike, bike, explore the... More
