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. (Well, OK, Grey’s been there for millions of years, but without runs or lifts on it.) With 300″/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomers, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), in-bounds cat-skiing, 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, and – phew! – 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.” Other accolades include #1 in Powder’s “Ski Town Throwdown,” and “Most Underrated Resort” by Skiing. Around here, we pride ourselves on fresh turns that you don’t have to fight for… Aside from the legendary skiing and snowboarding, RED boasts world-class cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, movie nights and aprÃÂ¨s action in Rafters, “North America’s Best Ski Area Bar” according to Powder Magazine (and us…). Modern ski in/out lodging, fine dining, a professional ski school, guiding, high-performance rentals, daycare that’s just steps away from gourmet espresso, and a free shuttle to Rossland round out our offering. With Rossland’s turn-of-the-century charm and our legendarily friendly locals, RED Mountain Resort is the full vacation package: Everything you need. Nothing you don’t. (The only fluff we offer is our snow!)
