During the winter, the Rossland Ski Bus runs between various points in Rossland and RED Mountain Resort.

Fiercely independent RED Mountain is a place of powerful contrasts. It is the oldest resort in Western Canada yet they’re also the home of one of the most significant single terrain expansions in the last decade. Proudly Canadian yet located only minutes over the USA border in the snowy Kootenay mountains. Guests love the unpretentious vibes as much as the massive terrain—3,850 acres!— that puts them in the Top 10 size-wise in N. America. They’re bad at math but proud of their numbers: nearly 3,000 ft of vertical drop; 300-inches of snowfall; $20/run cat-skiing ($15/run if a 6 ticket pack is purchased); and 5, count ‘em 5, skiable peaks. There are famous tree runs, pristine powder, glorious groomers, Ikon Pass access, and the raddest ski town around.


Pillow lines and face shots are a big reason riders come here, but they’ve listened to their guests and leveled-up our accommodation options. Visitors from near and far can now pick their pillow from anywhere on the price spectrum: slopeside modern condos with private hot tubs; new, cozy cabins nestled far onto the backside of the mountain for amazing first-tracks access; a design-driven modern hostel a snowball’s throw from the lift; and The Josie, a ski-in/ski-out independent boutique hotel that boasts incredible dining and cocktail options right at the base.


RED’s biggest boon in the great compare/contrast of mountain resorts is surely their superpower: the town of Rossland, right down the road. This Gold Rush town’s rugged charm and solid shopping and dining opportunities set RED apart from the pack, with The NY Times voting us their “#8 Best Place in the World to Visit.” And USAToday 10Best awarding us as Canada’s #1 Ski Town two years in a row (No ticky-tacky “villages” here!)


At one time, we were under the radar. Now? We’re the Next Big Thing.
