Enchanted Forest Opens Early For Skiing
Red River – Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Area is open for business.
“This is the best early-season skiing we’ve had in years,” Enchanted Forest’s General Manager Mike Ritterhouse asid. “We are 100-percent open with trail depths of 4 to 10 inches after the recent storm that gave us 22 inches Nov. 11-12. Conditions range from early season with potential obstacles to excellent!”
Depending on the weather, Enchanted Forest will be open during Thanksgiving week through Sunday, Nov. 25. Weather conditions will determine what happens after that.
For updated snow conditions, call ahead at 575.754.6112 or check EFXC.com and/or Facebook for updates.
