Torchlight

Red River Events

Nestled in the scenic Red River Valley, our Bavarian lodge is the perfect place to stay and experience the events in Red River, New Mexico. Most winter events are held at the Red River Ski Area located less than 100 feet from the Alpine Lodge, and most summer events are held in Brandenburg Park only 2 blocks from the Alpine Lodge. With summer average high temperatures in the 70’s and spectacular mountain views surrounding the park, these summer events are a delight to those traveling from hot climates. Come visit the Alpine Lodge and take part in our Red River, NM events!
