Full review

This was my husband's and my children's first ski adventure. I had not been skiing in 20 years and had only been to Colorado as a kid so was not sure what to expect. We really enjoyed Red River. It's a small town so all lodging was very close. We stayed "out of town" which was actually about a mile from the ski area. The area was beautiful and all of the staff were super friendly, even on their crazy busiest day. My biggest issue was that checking my kids in for ski school took a LONG time. It was their busiest day of the year but it was really insane!!!!

Red River is a small ski area but was perfect for my family! We will definitely be back.
