What's it like at Red Mountain Resort resort?

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 2017/18 Paradise Lodge went under the knife and got a big facelift, extra seating and brand new washrooms. We have tripled the size of high performance rentals including an extension of the patio upstairs --huge deck = huger deck! Piste off retail warriors expanded - more fashion and more function. We've also added more parking, 200 extra spots to be exact! With 305"/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, day care 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!)

I have been skiing Red for 40 years and watched the mountain grow. At first it was great as more lifts were added and more terrain opened up. However, the developers moved in too and now with COVID more and more young families are leaving the cities and buying up real estate in our “little” town. The ski hill has become very busy even in the middle of the week! It has become impossible to find affordable housing either to buy or to rent. Expect to find lift lines and line ups in the grocery store...I suppose that is called “progress”! I am now searching BC for another small ski town to move to...
