Best tips for Red Mountain Resort-Rossland
Up there with the likes of Fernie as a cult resort for expert skiers who can handle its steep terrain, wide glades and powder-filled bowls. While not big in European terms, it packs a lot of tough stuff into its mountains. If that’s your scene, get there quickly as the ski area has been developing. For the 2013/14 season the ski area was hugely expanded by a new quad chair up Grey Mountain, adjacent to its existing Granite Mountain terrain, adding some more intermediate runs to its existing mainly gnarly black runs through the trees. But it’s still the black and double-black stuff that is the real attraction; it’s marked on the map, but not on the mountain – so a guide may be necessary to explore it fully. There is good cat-skiing here too – and another 200 acres was added for 2014/15. Accommodation has recently been built at the base, but otherwise you stay at the small old mining town of Rossland just 4km away.
