Located above the old mining town of Rossland, nestled in the Kootenay Rockies is RED Mountain Resort, an unspoiled small-town resort with empty lift-lines and 8m of fluffy interior-BC powder falling every year.
Three huge mountains – Red, Granite and Grey – feature everything from wide-open groomers, powder-filled glades and powder bowls. You can ski fresh tracks for hours on the uncrowded peaks while Grey has spectacular 360-degree descents. You can even cat-ski a run for $10 on the mountain – how’s that for value?! There’s a fun, local après scene and some great dining options, with the best accommodations found on-hill or in nearby Rossland. But RED is very much about the skiing and friendly, welcoming vibes.
So much more than powder
With history as deep as the powder that graces the slopes of RED, this hidden gem ski resort is one of Mabey Ski’s favourites. Spend a day with a local snow host, listening to enchanting stories whilst discovering secret huts built by locals over the years.
Boasting 3,850 skiable acres without the crowds, RED has some of the most impressive terrain in BC – and is among the top 10 largest resorts in North America. Whether you’re looking to ski fresh tracks all day, check out the lively après scene or explore the rich history, RED Resort and the local town of Rossland really have something for everyone.
We typically organise ski trips to RED Mountain Resort as part of a bigger loop around the Powder Highway, due to its remote location, incorporating some of BC’s other hidden gem resorts, such as Whitewater and Revelstoke.
