Happy New Year!!
We made it!! I think more so this year than any other in recent memory, folks have been happy to say goodbye to 2020 and welcome the New Year! We at the Rio Colorado would also like to wish you a Happy New Year, one full of health and prosperity for you and your family. We had an overall good year here at the Rio Colorado and we would really like to thank you, our loyal guests, who are really more like our friends and family, for all the wonderful support this year. It has been a trying year in many ways but we are very thankful for you and your support and understanding this year. We are eagerly looking forward to this year and hoping that we will be able to see a return of our Events and activities that we enjoy so much.
Despite the late opening and limited capacity, the ski season has been off to a good start. We had a nice storm a few days after Christmas, 8-10 inches in town and much more up on the mountain. The skiing has been great this week and we are looking forward to another storm this week as well. Folks have really enjoyed the sledding and snowmobiling this year too. In addition to those activities Red River is also home to one of the best Cross Country Ski Areas in the Region, The Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Area located at the top of Bobcat Pass. They received a great amount of snow as well. Winter is a great time of the year for the outdoor activities so, if you haven’t visited us in the Winter maybe this should be the year.
In addition to our regular activities, we have a few New businesses in town this winter too. Bearly Awake is a new coffee and frozen yogurt shop (and much more) located right across the street from Rio Colorado next to the Bear store. They have great food as well, breakfast burritos, soup and sandwiches, pizza by the slice, and breakfast pastries. Taos Mountain Outfitters has opened a new store in Red River next to the Bank (the old Mountain Treasures location). They have a lot of great outdoor gear and clothing, plus anything else you may need to enjoy the mountains! Of course, all our Rental and Retail stores are open and ready to serve you so please make sure to stop in and visit those as well.
We have been working hard to create a safe environment for all our visitors. You can view our Covid safe practices by clicking Here and also at the Town of Red River, The Red River Ski Area, and other local businesses as well. We are continuing to see a decline in cases and are looking forward to seeing an increase in capacity soon. It’s also a great time to be planning ahead for your Summer Trip! We fill up very fast so make sure to give us a call or book online today! We look forward to seeing you all this year and again want to wish you a spectacular 2021!!
