Are you interested in trying snowboarding? Or do you have a beginner in your group that is coming to Red River this Spring? There are some great places in the US to learn how to snowboard, but Red River, NM is the best, and we are here to tell you why. Red River Ski & Summer Area has been a family-owned business for over 60 years, and that makes it a great place for your family vacation. In the winter months, you will find a lot of families with little ones out on the slopes. You will see little ones as young as three on the mountain learning how to snowboard with the help of their parents.
Snowboarding in Red River is the best feeling ever. Over 300 acres of fresh powder runs for everyone to enjoy. About ⅓ of the runs in Red River are easy and beginner-friendly. Even the harder runs are great for beginners as they can be much wider. Another ⅓ of the runs are great for adrenaline junkies including The Face. After snowboarding down this black diamond trail, head on into The Lift House for a quick bite to eat and watch other snowboarders brave the run!

Smaller Mountain Makes it Easier to Learn
Unlike other ski towns, Red River isn’t so big that one could get lost. When you are on top of the mountain you can see the small town of Red River down below. All of the runs will lead you to the bottom of the mountain at either of the two final destinations. Red River offers a designated beginner area with a magic carpet and enough of a slope to help beginners work their way down as they learn this fun sport. This area is occupied by teachers and those guests taking lessons, but there is always room for anyone to take a couple practice runs if you are just beginning and not taking lessons.
If you want to learn how to snowboard, don't wait any longer. Reserve a property with us and book a private lesson or group lesson with Red River Ski & Summer Area. We still have a couple months that the slopes will be open so take advantage of it now! The Spring is a great time to enjoy Red River as the weather is great and some weekdays aren’t so crowded due to school being back in session.
