Welcome to Red River Ski & Summer Area! This incredible ski hill in Taos County transforms into an adventurous land in the summer.
During the winter months, this is one of New Mexico's most popular ski hills, but the summer brings just as much fun. Red River is New Mexico's most friendly ski towns, and the Red River Ski & Summer Area proves just that.

This version of tubing is full of thrills without any of the chills. RRSSA takes the ski hills and lays out tracks for you to take a tube on. It's just like winter tubing, but without the snow!
There are three different tracks to choose from at this awesome ski hill.
For the little ones, the "Mini Lane" is an easy course that's free of charge. For everyone over 42", the Baby Blue Hill is serviced by a surface lift to go again and again.
The third hill is the monstrous "Gold Rush," which is 800-feet of track for pure fun.
The "Gold Rush" is the longest tubing lanes for summer tubing in the entire country. Unlike "Little Blue," this hill is serviced by the Gold Chairlift — so you know it's about to be a thrilling ride down from the top.

It doesn't hurt that this ski area is also so beautiful with the luscious trees all the way down. This ski area is beautiful all year long, but especially so in summer when most ski hills are the least used.
