Minimal lift lines and fresh powder stashes days after a storm are almost always guaranteed. Park your car in town as the lifts, bars, restaurants, and shops are only a short walk away.

Red River Ski & Summer Area is home to three terrain parks for every riding ability. Looking to show off? Then head to Hollywood, our main park home to the largest jumps, jibs, and hits. Our dedicated park staff is serious about building the best parks in the state.

Off the slopes this season you'll find that we've launched our brand new website chock full of upgrades and visuals providing a better online experience for our guests. We're also launching the rebrand of our terrain parks here at Red River as 'The Parks at Red River' which you can follow over on dedicated park social feeds. Out on the mountain our crews worked to widen and regrade Hollywood to accommodate a dedicated jump line with room for more features and better ow through our premier park.
