Cat-Skiing in Rossland
A snow cat is an enormous, fully-tracked machine with an enclosed cabin (like a tank for snow) used by mountain resorts to groom high-alpine runs or snowmobile tracks. Snow cats provide the transportation for cat-skiing.
Investigate Rossland and Red Mountain's real backcountry: five mountains with more than 7,500ha/18,500ac of backcountry skiing territory. Visitors looking for a unique winter ski experience will find incredible tree skiing, glades and wonderfully deep, pristine powder on a cat-ski tour.

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
