Skiing on RED Mountain often marks a visitor's first experience with the Rossland area. And nothing could be a better representation of what the Kootenays are really about:
With 300"/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomers, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), in-bounds cat-skiing ($10/run!), 360-degree descents, a rich tradition, and – phew! — the BEST tree runs in BC, it's no wonder The New York Times voted RED and Rossland "#8 Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013." Other accolades include #1 in Powder Magazine's "Ski Town Throwdown," and "Most Underrated Resort" by Skiing.
Brand-new terrain on Grey Mountain ringing in at nearly 1,000 acres. 22 new runs. A new lift installed. A new restaurant where you can, like, install a new ketchup stain on your $500 jacket… The expansion to Grey means more of everything you love, plus a massive increase in Intermediate terrain for families and mixed-skill groups. This recent expansion bumps the "local legend" into the Top 20 of all North American resorts in terms of terrain scale—while maintaining its position as #1 in pow aficionados' hearts.
Add to this the new 4-season Adventure Centre with fat bike rentals as well as lessons and guides for every sport under the sun, and "Where should we go honey?" starts sounding like a silly question indeed…
