Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
Take a break from RED Mountain's slopes and head across the highway for a day of cross-country skiing on an extensive network of trails.
Ski along the very routes once traversed by Canadian Olympic team member, George Grey, the first cross-country skier from BC to win a medal on the World Cup Circuit.
Black Jack Trails
Approximately 40km/25mi of trails are maintained by the Black Jack Cross Country Ski Club. There is a good mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain here, with all trails groomed for classic and skate technique. Many trails wind through the forest, with a few good viewpoints along the way.
Begin at the warming hut and head out along a fairly level section to a large meadow. From here, trails head uphill through the woods and follow the western perimeter of the ski area, circling back to the meadow once again.

Red Mountain Resort, British Columbia
RED Mountain is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, BC, along the famous "Powder Highway," RED delivers 4,200 acres of pristine skiing unfettered by overdevelopment. For 2013-14, we've added nearly 1,000 acres of mostly-intermediate terrain on Grey Mountain, an entirely new peak.
With 300"/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomed runs, epic vertical (890m!), in-bounds cat-skiing, 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, and 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)," and "Most Underrated Resort" by Skiing Magazine (2012). Come and enjoy fresh turns that you don't have to fight for
