The Ski Resort
RED Mountain is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, BC, along Canada´s famous Powder Highway, RED delivers 2,877 acres of pristine skiing unfettered by overdevelopment. In 2013-14, we added nearly 1,000 acres of mostly-intermediate terrain on Grey Mountain, making RED yet more family-friendly and uncrowded. For 2014-15, we continue our unique offering of (cheap!) in-bounds cat skiing on the flanks of stunning Mt. Kirkup. With 300"/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomed runs, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), in-bounds cat-skiing, 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, and the best tree runs on earth, it´s no wonder The New York Times voted us their #8 "Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013". RED´s other recent 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 (and us...). 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 our offering. With Rossland´s rugged charm and our legendary friendly locals, RED Mountain Resort is the full package: Everything you need. Nothing you don´t. It´s true: The only fluff we offer is our snow.
