Winter - 3 Day
Day 1 - Pick up rentals at RRSA and get ready for the slopes to open at 9am. When it's a busy holiday, best to start your day early! It's a big day after being on the slopes, so head home for a rest then eat out with one of our RR partners.
Day 2 - Ski Snowboard and Shop. Eat at your place and relax- family game night.
Day 3 - Snowmobile Tour with one of our local favs then off to shop, coffee up and enjoy your last night in Red River. Might book your summer vacay while you're here. It's cool mountain air in summers, not much over 80/85 degrees and low to no humidity.
Summer - 5 Day
Day 1 - Porch time and smell the mountain air. Rest up after your travel day. After lunch outside on the deck with one of our partners, book a horse ride or rent a surrey and acclimate to your mountain surroundings. Check out the shops- show your wristband for discounts at our mother store, Frye's Old Town & The Jewelry Lady.
Day 2 - Anglers or watchers of anglers - try a 4 hour or 8 hour trip on the Rio Grande, Valle Vidal, or poke around on the Red River. All of our guests int eh summer also have access to our stocked trout pond at 4kRiver Ranch. 2 fish per day per paying guest. It's catch and keep, so plan a fish fry with your family or fellow travelers.
Day 3 - Hike it, bike it, paddle it - get out there anyway you can... the mountains around us are beautiful, quiet (unless you are on Goose Trail), and are sure to bring your peace back after months of busy daily stuff. This is why you came to the mountains - get outside. We sell maps and can make suggestions on places to adventure from beginner to challenging.
Day 4 - Day trip New Mexico. Within 2 hours of Red River, there are many choices - from cultural happenings, natural landscapes, and historical landmarks. New Mexico is home to the oldest pueblo in the United States, in Taos.
Day 5 - Time to chill before you head back to the hot country, spend the day close to home at RRSA, chairlift ride, Pioneer flier, slide down the mountain on the alpine slide, or be super adventurous and try the ropes course at the base of Red River Ski Area. Lunch and or an afternoon beverage, then it's time to make that special purchase on Main Street.
Summer - 3 Day
Day 1 - Plan a guided trip with a local angling favorite. Even if you're not into fishing, ride along- the scenery is spectacular. After your adventure, shop a little on Red River's Main Street, sip a little java or other beverages, and smell that clean NM mountain air.
Day 2 - Want a taste of the Rio Grande? Book a float, paddle or whitewater trip and you'll probably get a gulp of water unexpectedly - great scenery is a given. On your way home, plan a casual dinner at one of our partners' eateries. Reservations or putting your name on the "list" is always recommended.
Day 3 - Hike it, move it - get out there anyway you can.. the mountains around us are beautiful, quiet (unless you are on the goose trail), and are sure to bring your peace back after months of busy daily stuff. This is why you came to the mountains, get outside. We sell maps and can make suggestions on places to adventure from beginner to challenging.
