Have been spending a month every summer in Red River since 1997 and wouldn't go anywhere else. Would LOVE to make a permanent move sometime in the future and agree wholeheartedly that it is an EXCELLENT place to settle down "affordable."

My family and I came to Red River last spring break, 2009. It was our first ski trip as a family and the best vacation we have ever had. We stayed at the Lifts West, and loved it. My 10 year old took to his first time skiing like fish to water. We plan on coming back year after year and maybe even purchase real estate there, eventually. We fell in love with the area and the people. Being from Oklahoma, we are not that far from Red River and hope to come alot more often.

We are building a home in Red River. Your article
gave us a great deal of confidence in our decision.
Thanks, Karen and Lynn

The facts on Minneapolis are just plain wrong. The North Shore is at least 2.5 hours from the city and the BWCA is more like 4, not 1 hour as the article indicates. Also, we do not have sub-zero temps for 5 months. Are you kidding?? Who is doing the fact checking here? Our winters are long and on the colder side, but geez, it's not the North Pole!

Red River will always hold a special place in my heart. I learned to ski and appreciate live music there and found some of the nicest people in the world. As the article says, a lifestyle of 2 jobs a day pays off with waking up to the sights and sounds and smells of living in the middle of a national forest. Amazing! And, as for the sense of taste, Red River boasts having the best steakhouse in the world for over 40 years- Texas Reds.

Nice story! I'm from New Mexico, and the Red River article states "the cottonwood tree-covered mountains" are actually aspens, a distant genus of cottonwood.

We own a place in Red River and it's the best kept secret in the Southwest! Great for family fun and very affordable. Skip Colorado and come see us!

Don't forget about the Enchanted Forest XC Ski Area just 3 miles east. Enchanted Forest offers 35k groomed trails, rentals and snowshoeing. Also, Red River is just 6 miles from the trail head for Wheeler Pk. New Mexico's highest.

I grew up in Red River and visit friends and family there often. It's a special place. Great skiing in the winter, and mile upon mile of mountain playground in the summer. Pay Red River a visit, you'll keep going back...
