Things to do In Red River for Kids

Posted on

School bells across the Southwest have rung their final ring and kids are running free for the summer. Get them outdoors before boredom has a chance to sink in, and if it already has then we’ve got the cure.  There’s so much to do in Red River this summer that there will never be a dull moment. We can guarantee they’ll never want to go home.  Stay with us at Sitzmark and take advantage of our Summer 5th Day Free special so you can visit long enough to fit in all the fun. Plus we can get your whole crew outfitted for the main attractions – mountain biking, horseback riding, jeep tours, rafting and more – during your stay.

Here’s our official checklist of things to do with the kids while vacationing in Red River. See you soon!

At Red River Ski & Summer Area

Scenic Chairlift Rides

This is a must if you’re here in the summer. Take the whole family to the top of the mountain for amazing views, some hiking or even a round of Disc Golf. They even offer the Family Altitude Adjustment Pass which provides some savings for bigger families. $50 for two adults (ages 13 and older) and up to four children (ages 12 and under.)

Hidden Treasure Aerial Park

This ropes course offers three levels of difficulty, two zip lines, and a thrilling activity for the whole family, although this is more suited to older kids.

The Pioneer Flyer

This seated zip line flies passengers over the pond, over Pioneer Road and up to the tower on The Face.

Summer Mountain Tubing

It’s like snow tubing but without the snow! Scream your way down three tubing hills, one of which is the longest summer tubing hill the country at 800 feet long.
