Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
In the Kootenay Rockies region, stay at a ski-in/ski-out lodge or enjoy cross-country skiing at downhill ski resorts such as Kicking Horse Mountain Resort or Fernie Alpine Resort.
There are also well-used club trails with warming huts and night-skiing. Golden, Kimberley, Castlegar and Rossland are a short drive away from groomed Nordic routes, and have produced champion cross-country skiers, such as Olympians George Grey (Rossland) and Sara Renner (Golden).
Cross-Country Skiing near Rossland and Castlegar
At Black Jack Cross-Country Club (Rossland), explore trails that meander through forests and across frozen lakes. At night, glide under the stars on a lit trail or take the Le Petit Fromage tour for skiing and fondue dinner.
The Paulson Cross-Country Ski Trails (Castlegar) have 45km/30mi of trails and three shelters. Beginners and families: try the Mud Lake to Ben Shaw cabin circle route. Adjacent Nancy Greene Provincial Park features ungroomed trails.

4300 Red Mountain Rd
Red Mountain Resort, British Columbia
RED Mountain is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, BC, along the famous Powder Highway, RED delivers 1,680 hectares (4,200 acres) of pristine skiing unfettered by overdevelopment. For 2013-14, we've added nearly 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of mostly-intermediate terrain on Grey Mountain, an entirely new peak.
With 300"/7.6 m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomed runs, epic vertical, cat-skiing, 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, & the best tree runs in BC, it's no wonder The NY Times voted us their #8 "Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013." RED's other recent accolades include #1 in Powder Magazine's "Ski Town Throwdown" (2012), & "Most Underrated Resort" by Skiing Magazine (2012). Come & enjoy fresh turns that you don't have to fight for.
