Middle Fork Lake

Often referred to as "The Mountain Playground of the Southern Rockies," Red River features plenty of things to do to make a great vacation spot for people of all ages. Summers offer a haven to those in hot climates with our average high temperature in the 70’s and average nightly low in the 40’s. For the adventurous winter traveler, Red River receives an average of 214 inches of snow per year making the area a winter wonderland. In addition, the Red River Ski Area has snowmaking capabilities on 85% of the terrain so snow sports begin Thanksgiving weekend every year! Whether traveling Summer, Fall, or Winter, the Alpine Lodge is simply in a remarkable location to explore the Southern Rockies.

Located less than 100 feet from the Red River Ski Area's Main Chair Lift (Platinum Triple Chair), adjacent to the Carson National Forest, on the Red River, and on Main Street, our lodge is in a perfect location to enjoy the many things to do in Red River in any season.
