The main headquarters for Bobcat Pass Wilderness Adventures and Cowboy Evenings atop Bobcat Pass outside Red River burned to the ground in the early morning hours Christmas Eve. At press time, Red River Fire Department crews were still on site. Check back at for updates.

“Somebody called in,” co-owner Henry Lewis said. “I was dead to the world ’til they woke me up at 3 a.m.”

Sue Lewis, who owns the business with Henry, noted the business will still be booking snowmobile tours from its new business location at 212 W. Main Street (kitty corner from Der Markt) in Red River.

“We’re running,” Henry said. “We’re doing four tours a day. People just need to check in at our office here in town and then we’ll drive up 4 miles to Bobcat Pass for the tours on the ranch across from our headquarters. We appreciate everyone’s support. We’re still running if they’ll just bear with us. Nobody was hurt. We just lost things from 25 years of collecting!”

Call 575-754-2769 or 575-754-9943.
