Red River is well known as the "Ski Town of the Southwest." It originated as an old mining town before becoming the popular tourist destination it is today. Red River offers warm, friendly faces, kind hospitality, and good wholesome family fun. As a premier New Mexico destination, it is a community that you will love so much; you won't want to go home.... And so, we didn't! We visited Red River Ski area in December of 2010 to enjoy Christmas and New Years in the mountains. Instantly, we were captured by the community, the friendly people, the charm, and the breath taking beauty of the this hidden jewel, nested in the mountains far away from the bustle and hurry of the corporate world. We went to work negotiating our purchase of Black Mountain Lodge. In the process we learned much about the amazing history of Red River and the Black Mountain Lodge and Playhouse. It is our personal desire to see that your experience at Red River is as wonderful as ours! Families have been making lasting memories at the Playhouse since 1964...and it's a tradition we aim to continue. As a part of our extended family, we welcome you to Red River...to an amazing experience...and to the Black Mountain Lodge and Playhouse... a family tradition!
