The 3rd Annual Drew Judycki Memorial Disc Golf will take place on September 27th and 28th 2014, the same weekend as the town of Red River's Aspencade Arts and Crafts Festival. Our 18 hole Mountain Top Disc Golf Course is nestled in an Apsen grove with beautiful panoramas of the surrounding Sangre De Cristo Mountains. Professional and Amateur Disc Golfers are welcome to sign up for online registration to participate in our Professional Disc Golf Association sanctioned two day tournament. Join the fun with a player's party and tournament raffle!

All ages can come to enjoy fishing in the Red River, at area lakes, and also at the Town Ponds.

Disc Golf is a popular upcoming sport for outdoor enthusiasts. That's why we decided to put an 18-hole course on the top of the mountain. Wander through the Aspens with your friends and family and enjoy the beautiful views! All you have to do is get to the top of the mountain either by the Summer Scenic Chairlift Rides, Hiking, or Biking.
Join us for our 4th Annual Drew Judycki Memorial Disc Golf Tournament: September 26th & September 27th 2015.

The Pioneer Flyer at Base Camp

This Pond to Face Zip Line originates from a ground level platform between the two ponds on Pioneer Road which provide a reservoir for snowmaking in the winter and trout fishing during the summer. The seated zip will cross over Pioneer Road and rise up on The Face. At the highest point this zip will be 70 plus feet above Pioneer Road. The Pioneer Flyer is a 730 foot zip which pulls guests backwards in seated duo carriages allowing 4 people to zip at one time. Once guests have reached the tower on The Face they are released to soar over Pioneer Road and the pond.

The Pioneer Flyer at Base Camp

Experience the thrill of flying over the pond, Pioneer Road, and up to the tower on The Face! You simply must experience it over and over again! Once is just not enough! Beautiful views, great family fun, and a new experience.

Of course, this adventure is weather permitting and you must be 42 inches to ride The Flyer, but other than that all you need is courage!

$10 per ride
$50 for a 6 pack of rides
$80 for a 10 pack of rides (great for the whole family)
