2016 Holidays in Red River

Posted on

No ski-town embraces the spirit of the holidays quite like Red River. With sparkling lights of all kinds, from torches gliding peacefully down the mountainside to the soft glow of luminarias, combined with the stillness of the crisp mountain air and the surrounding layer of powdery white, our little winter wonderland has something to delight visitors of all ages. We hope to see you this holiday season, and from all of us here at Sitzmark Sports, we wish you a Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!
