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.
