We hope all of you had a great holiday season. Red Wing was beautiful with over 30 inches of snow, four of which fell Christmas eve. If winter outdoor sports is your thing, come to Red Wing for downhill skiing, cross country, snow shoeing, etc. We still have plenty of snow.

Currently there is 16 inches of snow on the ground. It is a perfect time for downhill skiing at Welch Ski Village, cross country skiing at numerous groomed trails, or sitting by the fire with a nice glass of wine.
Here, at the Moondance, we are preparing for New Years with a two night New Year’s package for romantics.
