RED Mountain Resort

RED Mountain is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, and the first stop on Canada’s famous Powder Highway, RED delivers 1,558 hectares (3,850 acres) of pristine skiing, putting the resort in the Top 10, size-wise, in North America. With a new chairlift and seven more runs over 121 additional hectares (300 acres) on Topping Creek to streamline skier flow to Grey Mountain, this is the Year of RED. Add in 7.6 metres (25 feet) of annual snowfall, $10/run cat-skiing, a brand new boutique hotel, and a modern hostel at the base, and it’s no wonder The NY Times voted the resort (and our friendly locals) their “#8 Best Place in the World to Visit.” We also nabbed “Most Underrated Resort” from Skiing. Wondering what “#1 Most Acres Per Skier” means? Fresh turns you don’t have to fight for.

  • Aug 3, 2019: “Stayed at the Slalom condos in midsummer, which is low season for this ski resort. Accommodation was clean and reasonably priced, but could not comfortably sleep the advertised number of occupants and there was no window in one bedroom, which I believe may be in contravention of the B.C. building code. There was no air conditioning. The dishwasher leaked. The entire balcony was taken up with the hot tub, the cover of which had seen better days. One day before our departure, the elevator was taken out of service. These problems were reported to management but the only problems that were addressed were replenishment of towels and toilet paper. ” 2
