Red River

Fresh tracks—whether ski, snowboard, snowmobile, snowshoe or local wildlife—abound in Red River. A knowing smile on the map surrounded by the million-acre playground of Carson National Forest, the Town of Red River has kept its mining roots close and the open wilderness closer, offering visitors a quaint, tucked-away place that puts Mother Nature front and center. More than 350,000 travelers pass through annually to experience the charm of one of the last pristine mountain towns in New Mexico. Once you settle into your comfy accommodations, lay tracks in any direction and find yourself at everything from retail stores to local restaurants and historic bars to untouched mountain trails.

Simply buy what you need on the website and head straight to the slopes for touchless ticketing. Sipapu also offers some of New Mexico's most convenient slope-side lodging. Book a place of your own right by the lift and retreat to a comfortable space at your leisure.
