  • We spent a few hours in Red River, we took the lifts, 20 dollars per person to climb to the top of the mountain. Ascension is quite long over 30 min and very nice, very beautiful view. A little more disappointment at the top because not much to see or do.

  • So i went to RR for the first time on valentines day weekend, felt in love with the place. But i had an accident up high in the trails, and I lost my board. I try looking for it, but it was impossible to find it, and I was in a lot of pain. So as soon as I could i went to the Lost and found, ski patrol, and the help desk, and as i thought no one had seen it or turned it in. I was so upset because that board meant a lot to me and i couldn't believe i had lost it. Since i am from Dallas, I had to go back home that weekend, but I kept calling every day to ask if anyone had found it. I was loosing hope of ever recuperating my board, and i stop calling. Until yesterday, 2 weeks after I had lost it, i got a text from WESLEY at Red River, and they told me they found it. Thank You so much !!! Wesley, i know i was a pain, but you have been amazing help. I cant thank you enough and everyone who help. I am truly happy and so exited to go back. Thank you all at RED RIVER / WESLEY- JAZ
  • We ALWAYS have an amazing time at RR. This trip we were fortunate enough to get 8" of fresh powder during our stay. Wonderful skiing on the mountain. We will be back again next month!
