Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
Sitting high in the Monashee Mountains, Rossland is home to a vast network of cross-country skiing trails, many of which are maintained by the Kootenay Columbia Trail Society.
Come winter time, the stunning and varied terrain around Rossland provides endless cross-country ski opportunities to please novices and experts. The snow comes early and stays late, so the ski-season is long and the views endless.

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 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
