Red River Holiday

When booking a family holiday vacation there are different things to take in mind. Do you like to relax? Do you like to be away from other people? Is anyone up for an adventure? Here in Red River we have so much to do for everyone in the family. 

Red River was founded by miners and is now home to those who love the mountain life. The one mile long town has all family-owned businesses and is growing every year. Here are a few reasons why you should spend your family vacation in Red River.

Mountain Views

As you drive into our little town, the views you will see will take your breath away everytime. No matter how many times you have vacationed in Red River, the mountains will make you stop and take it all in. Enjoy a campfire in the evenings and roasting s’mores while looking at the stars in the sky. 

Finding Peace

Mountains can be beneficial for finding peace in your life. The mountains can help you rediscover the beauty of nature and help you relax and enjoy the views. Taking a trip to the mountains is a great way to get some fresh air and time to spend with family and friends. 

The Experience of a Lifetime

The number of different things to do here in Red River during the holidays grows every year. Red River’s annual *Switch On the Holidays takes place every Thanksgiving night at Brandenburg Park starting at 7 pm. Join in with the locals as we sing carols and watch the Christmas Tree lighting. Head inside of the Conference Center for cocoa, cookies, and a special visit from Santa Claus!* 

There Will be SNOW!

Whether Mother Nature herself provides us with a dumping of snow, or Red River Ski Area’s snow blowers work around the clock, there will be snow. The Ski Area will be *open and happy to see you during the holidays. Enjoy a breakfast burrito smothered in green chiles at Shotgun Willies before hitting the slopes. Enjoy some chicken nachos and a bread bowl with chicken tortilla soup from The Grill at The Lift House while watching other skiers and snowboarders come down The Face. Once the lifts have closed for the day, be sure to make reservations for *snow tubing, as these spots fill up fast. 

This year (2020), the Red River Ski Area is asking that you purchase your lift tickets in advance as they are allowing 25% capacity due to COVID-19. Visit their website here for more information about their 2020-2021 ski information.New call-to-action
