Know it like a local before you even get here.

This region is a recreational paradise because it’s beautiful, straight-forward and fuss-free. It won’t take you the first half of your ski holiday to figure the place out. Rossland’s main drag, historic Columbia Ave., has everything you need including cozy cafes and a gourmet grocery store. Get Lost Adventure Centre at the base of RED Mountain can get you out into the wild safely and at a great price. From first tracks in the morning to après at Rafters to a night out on the town, you’ll have this place on lock in no time flat. (Just don’t go claiming “local” quite yet…)

Red Mountain

Recreating is serious business around here

Fiercely independent RED Mountain Resort delivers 3,850 acres of pristine skiing, putting us in Top 10 terrain territory in N. America. A new chairlift on Topping Creek streamlines skier flow to Grey Mountain and we continue our unique offering of $10/run cat skiing on the flanks of stunning Mt. Kirkup. We really pride ourselves on fresh turns you don’t have to fight for—that’s why we claim “#1 Acres Per Skier”!

Your RED adventure also now offers a wider range of ski-in/ski-out accommodations for any budget: modern condos with private hot tubs; The Constella, our new mid-mountain cabins; a design-driven modern hostel a snowball’s throw from the lift; and an independent boutique hotel, The Josie, at the base that boasts incredible dining and cocktail options. With 300” of annual snowfall, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), wide-open groomers, 360-degree descents, IKON Pass access, a rich tradition, and—phew!—the BEST tree runs in BC, is it any wonder RED was voted “Most Underrated Resort” by Skiing?

But RED Mountain’s true superpower is surely the town of Rossland, located right down the road. This Gold Rush era town’s rugged charm and solid shopping and dining opportunities set RED apart from the pack. It’s no wonder The NY Times voted us their “#8 Best Place in the World to Visit.” And don’t forget après action in Rafters, “North America’s Best Ski Area Bar” according to Powder (and us). So, whether you’re trying out a fat bike for the first time at Get Lost Adventure Centre or settling into a fat scotch after a big day on our big mountain, we know that your trip to RED will both adrenalize and relax you in equal amounts. Throw in our legendarily friendly locals, and RED Mountain really is the full package: Everything you need. Nothing you don’t.


Gold got ‘em here. And the Kootenays kept ‘em here…

When gold-crazy miners struck pay dirt here in the late 1800s, they couldn’t have possibly known what would be “left in the pan” by today. But their grit, courage, and resourcefulness set the tone for the town to come. And, thanks to them, Rossland remains real in an era of artifice.

It might not be as rowdy as the Rossland of 1896 with its 42 saloons and 21 brothels, but this place has a pulse. You can feel it on the street, in the shops, or in the grocery store. It hits you as soon as you step out of your car. The hard-as-hobnails miners with pick axes over their shoulders have simply been replaced by hardcore fun-seekers with fat skis or mountain bikes over their shoulders. It’s true many of them still have massive beards but, rest assured, the vibe is more “bro” than “brothel” heading into the winter.

Modern-day Rossland is that rare beast: A place of small town charm and big, big ideas. A real municipality at the base of a world-class ski resort. A four season paradise where there are more recreational opportunities than there are hours in the day. An historic downtown core with all mod cons, from gourmet espresso to book stores. And all of it is held together by the famously friendly locals and their commitment to making sure that Canadian Hospitality still means something, whether you’re traveling as a family or on


Pre-après & post-après are NOT the same as “dinner”

Whether you were baptized with a burger in-hand or lean more toward grilled baby leeks glazed with white truffle oil, Rossland’s restaurants are sure to satisfy. Gourmet pizza at Misty Mountain? Check . Sit-down Italian at Gabriella’s? Sì!Life changing nachos for après at Rafters? Burp.Endless Sashimi and Tempura at Aka Dake Sushi? Hai!Exotic ingredients and decadent desserts at Idgies? Hey, that’s mine!Food, fun and cold ones at The Flying Steamshovel, one of BC’s oldest pubs (dating back to the Gold Rush)? Hells yes!  Cook your own back at the condo with ingredients from Ferraro Foods, our gourmet grocery? Paper or plastic, miss?  Scratch craft beers at Rossland Brewing Company? Cheers — and please put your toque back on!

Rossland’s amazing four-season lifestyle offerings have all but guaranteed that entrepreneurial gourmets, chefs, brewers and coffee heads move here and set up shop. And, well, let’s just say that it was all part of our master plan…

Fill your boots or just get them fitted.

For some folks (who shall go nameless), a ski holiday is simply a great excuse to go shopping. At least now we understand why so many large pockets on that giant ski bag were left strategically empty…

Rossland’s independent spirit is perfectly reflected in the shop windows lining our historic streets: No Big Box stores here. Nor will you find obnoxious luxury boutiques selling those weird jewel-encrusted eggs or any other jet-set nonsense. You’ll score items that you’ve never seen before, from infant onesies to top-of-the-line Gore-Tex onesies for grownups.

Shop for shoes at The Red Pair, handcrafted apparel at The Cellar, any and all things cooking at Bear Country Kitchen, and clothing and accessories at Curiosity Clothing and Gifts. Or, have a bed ‘n’ bath bonanza at Feather Your Nest and then get your second wind at one of Rossland’s awesome coffee shops like Grind Coffee. (We’ve done studies and a large latte will enable you to shop for exactly 2.5 more hours.)

Your dad’s 30 year-old gloves with duct tape not doing the trick your first day on the mountain? Go buck wild with the best pick of endless soft goods at the Piste Off Supply Co. conveniently located at the base of RED. And if it’s your sports gear that needs upgrading or tweaking, know that Rossland’s wizards, such as Powderhound, Revolution, and RossVegas Boardshop, can sort you out in ways you never thought possible. They live, eat and breathe mountain sports so they know what works best, regardless of budget. Get your boots fitted or yourself kitted right out, from goggles to gewgaws.
