With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and the pressure to find that perfect last minute Christmas gift, it’s easy to feel like you’re missing out on the traditional holiday feeling.
When you spend the Christmas season in Red River, you and your family get a chance to disconnect and enjoy some of the classic holiday activities that will give you the sense of a traditional family winter experience you may be missing. But don’t let the small town fool you, there’s plenty to do for the whole family.
The quaint little town of Red River, New Mexico is a mountain playground enriched with history. Families get to enjoy either skiing down the mountain or learning how at the Red River Ski and Summer Area while making memories that will last a lifetime. You’ll want to make sure you get to the base of the mountain early to grab a front row spot for the Torchlight Parade on Christmas Eve. This is a magical site to see! Grab your hot cocoa and bundle up with your loved ones while you watch skiers descend down the luminary-lined mountain as fireworks are launched into the crisp winter sky for all to see.
As you stroll through the town back to your cozy vacation rental, take a look around to experience the Christmas lights and stop to make a snow angel or two.
Between skiing down the mountain, watching the Christmas Eve Parade, and seeing the snow fall as the breathtaking lights twinkle around you, there’s something truly magical about Red River during the winter.
