The Story of Red Lady (the mountain)

March 12, 2015
Red Lady (the mountain) gets its name from a bowl on Mt. Emmons which faces the town from the West.

Holding snow into the early summer, Red Lady is a local’s favorite for late skiing.  How it got its name reaches back in local lore.

The common story around town is that the many red lights from the red light district used to cast a hue on Mt. Emmons at night - hence the name.  But, given the Quick read more or view full article available wattage of the turn of the century light bulbs, we thought a little more research was called for.
75 –year-old “Whitey” Sporcich says he doesn’t know.  “We always just called it that.  Maybe because it used to have a burn down the upper left section that was kind of red colored.” A short conversation with town patriarch Tony Mihelich may have solved the mystery.  “Sometimes when the sun set just right in the summer, it looked just like a picture of a red lady up there.”  At 93 years of age, when Tony gave us this story, it didn’t make much sense to question him.
His version works just fine for us.
