Attraction details
Owner description: RED Mountain is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, BC, along the famous "Powder Highway," RED delivers 4,200 acres of pristine skiing unfettered by overdevelopment. For 2013-14, we've added nearly 1,000 acres of mostly-intermediate terrain on Grey Mountain - an entirely new peak. (Well, OK, Grey's been there for millions of years, but without runs or lifts on it.) With 300"/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomers, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), in-bounds cat-skiing, 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, and - phew! - the BEST tree runs in BC, it's no wonder The NY Times voted us their #8 "Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013." Other accolades include #1 in Powder's "Ski Town Throwdown," and "Most Underrated Resort" by Skiing. Around here, we pride ourselves on fresh turns that you don't have to fight for... Aside from the legendary skiing and snowboarding, RED boasts world-class cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, movie nights and après action in Rafters, "North America's Best Ski Area Bar" according to Powder Magazine (and us...). Modern ski in/out lodging, fine dining, a professional ski school, guiding, high-performance rentals, daycare that's just steps away from gourmet espresso, and a free shuttle to Rossland round out our offering. With Rossland's turn-of-the-century charm and our legendarily friendly locals, RED Mountain Resort is the full vacation package: Everything you need. Nothing you don't. (The only fluff we offer is our snow!)

red is a great little hill that still has fairly short wait times in the lift lines. This could change soon as development is rapidly increasing here - condos are going up and they are expanding the ski-able area by quite a bit. Get out there before it gets overrun!

A last minute trip to a unheard of mountain.....wow, a wonderful surprise. it's an older resort with no high speed quads. but lots of varied terrain and some of the best tree skiing! We bought out lift tickets through Costco.com and the saving was immense. It was the week after New year and the locals told us it was quiet because of the :"new Year" hangover- we never waited more than a minute for a lift. The brown bag cafe at the main lodge was wonderful for non skiers and had easily accessible wi fi. A great time to go!It was worth the almost 8 hour drive from Seattle- we will be back!

We taught our children to ski on this mountain. The magic carpet and chair access to many green and blue runs are a nice contrast to the more expert terrain at Whitewater. Accommodation is excellent if not a bit expensive. I didn't rate excellent because of the the run design - all the runs from the upper mountain funnel down into said easy terrain at the bottom so many expert skiiers come whipping down of the mountain past those learning and it is quite scary.

I went here with a buddy of mine in March, so the snow conditions were a little spring-ish. That being said, it was probably the best snow to be skiied upon in the area. The locals were hospitable, the price was reasonable and the trip from Spokane was pleasant. Think of it as a Whistler for the less affluent - with virtually no night life.
As a transplanted Texan, I can only say this: as with all Canadian places, avoid any and all contact with Mexican dishes.....it does not translate well at all. Beer were good and not badly priced either.
