SKI News:

This is the first year since Enchanted Forest opened in 1985 in Red River that it has remained closed ... until last weekend.
Fresh snow last week and additional new snow Tuesday has made conditions very nice for skiing on the "inner loop".
More snow is expected for a possible 6 inches of new snow on the trails. By today we will be out grooming and the chance for good skiing this weekend is high! We may see unseasonably warm temperatures again next week so grab your skinny skis and come on out while you still can.
