Red Mountain Resort

Red Mountain Resort

RED has been delivering incredible skiing longer than any other resort in Western Canada, with the first recorded powder turns in 1896. Offering incredible terrain with a 2,919 foot vertical drop (884 meters) that annually features over 300 inches (750cm) of snowfall, the resort boasts a terrain park, easy-to-access backcountry, snowshoeing, friendly locals, fine dining and affordable luxury slope-side lodging. All this is seasoned with authentic winter enthusiasm and turn-of-the-century charm of Rossland, minutes away. Powder Ski magazine readers selected RED and Rossland and Nelson BC as the ultimate ski town in the 2012 Powder Magazine Ski Town Throwdown.
