Fall in love with this charming mountain town that’s big on family adventure, whether you want to ski, snowboard, snowmobile, snow-tube, cross-country ski, or enjoy the fire in the cabin.
The family-owned ski area has been in operation for more than 60 years and knows how to make your family feel special. The almost non-existent lift lines that begin and end in town are the gateway to great food, unique shops, and live music.

With a free downtown trolley, and great events like regular torchlight parades and the Red River Songwriters' Festival on January 23–25, this laid-back, charming town is the ideal winter destination.
