Red mountain totally delivered on its promise. A great skiers mountain with few of the trappings of modern resort living. Amazing terrain, great snow, no lift lines, great food, an awesome apres ski bar and lots of lodging options. Super slow lifts mean fewer runs...More

I am looking into Red Mountain for this ski season. I have seen quite a few comments about the groomers and there not being many. I am on carving skis so I love steep, open and wide groomers to carve my heart out on. Can anyone let me know how many slopes are groomed (it says on the resort's home page that there are 110 runs but am now wondering how many of those are actually groomed) and is the grooming good? I am also a more advanced skier so are there really good runs and long ones? What is the average length of the runs? Does anyone know what the average temp in winter is for the resort? I have also seen that the lifts are super slow - how long does it take on a chair and are there bubbles over any of the chairlifts to increase warmth? Final question - is there a supermarket in the two or do you have to go to Rossland to do shopping? Thanks in advance!
