Red River

Small Town USA 

Red River is a picturesque small town with one main street and practically the entire town is on it: shops, restaurants, motels and local businesses — even the ski resort is a short walk from Main Street.

Visitors enjoy diverse winter activities including downhill skiing/snowboarding, X-country skiing/snowshoeing, snowmobiling and more. Sightseeing is a given. You are pretty much guaranteed to see some form of wildlife during your stay.

Red River snowmobilers have miles of groomed trails all the way up Sawmill Canyon to the 11,249-foot Greenie Peak. The Valle Vidal is a 100,000-acre wildlife tract with a 50-mile loop from Sawmill Canyon. The Upper Red River Valley is another favorite haunt where snowmobilers like to take the switchbacked road leading to Middle Fork Lake.
