RED Mountain ski resort is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, BC, along Canada’s famous Powder Highway, RED delivers 2,887 acres of pristine skiing unfettered by over-development. In 2013-14, they added nearly 1,000 acres of fun terrain on Grey Mountain, a peak with something for everyone. For 2014-15, they continue their unique offering of (cheap!) in-bounds cat skiing on the flanks of stunning Mt. Kirkup. Around here, they pride ourselves on fresh turns that you don’t have to fight for — and they deliver.
With 300″/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomers, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, and — phew! — the BEST tree runs in BC, it’s no wonder The NY Times voted Red Mountain ski resort their #8 “Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013.” Other accolades include #1 in Powder‘s “Ski Town Throwdown,” and “Most Underrated Resort” by Skiing.
Aside from the legendary skiing and snowboarding, RED boasts world-class cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, movie nights and après action in Rafters, “North America’s Best Ski Area Bar” according to Powder. Modern ski in/ski out lodging, fine dining, a professional ski school, backcountry guiding, high-performance rentals, day care that’s kitty-corner to gourmet espresso, and a free shuttle to Rossland round out their offering with Rossland’s rugged charm and their legendarily friendly locals, RED Mountain Ski Resort is the full package: Everything you need. Nothing you don’t. It’s true: The only fluff they offer is their snow.
