Great place! Super friendly, loved the folks at the Best Western! Mountain Treasures and Anchovies Pizza were the places to eat! Real friendly locals! Only thing preventing me from giving Red River a five was my ski instructor. Great skier but real impatient with me. I asked how long he'd been skiing & he said since childhood. Well, great! Some didn't learn til they were older dude...be a little more tolerant!
Update: that is okay about the ski instructor. I don't wish to get him in trouble. He probably did me a favor by telling me the truth even though I didn't like hearing it.

We had a great time skiing! Staff is very polite and accommodating! Wish there would have been real snow, but mother nature is in charge of that detail. Great town and ski conditions!

I'm very big about writing reviews on my experiences rather they are good or bad. Red River Ski Area is AMAZING! I'm in my mid thirties and have never been skiing. I hate the cold, I hate the snow and I especially hate falling down! My husband who is a big skier talked me into at least trying to learn with an instructor. I gave in and agreed. The ski Instructor Bob was fantastic!! He was so patient with me and taught in a way that everything made sense. After only an hour I had the basics down!! I couldn't believe it! They have a slope where the beginners learn it's called the "Magic Carpet" It has like an escalator that you stand on and it brings you to the top of the little hill which is great, that way you don't have to deal with the ski lift as well as trying to learn to ski for the first time. It's also perfect for children!
To my surprise I actually really loved skiing, I truly believe it was the staff at Red River Ski Area that made that possible for me. Everything from the rental of my ski equipment to my lesson was effortless! Everyone was soo friendly, Lenton the owner and Walt the GM was fantastic! They are so involved with the resort and making sure everyone is having fun it's really amazing! They even cheered me on as I came down the slope! I have already starting telling all my friends that I'm taking them there to learn how to ski, I believe in my heart there's NO better place to learn! I have only experienced the magic carpet hill and the bunny hill but my husband said the other slopes are awesome as well, they have something there for everyone! Thanks y'all for the experience of a life time!! I will definitely be spreading the word!! :)
