Red Mountain at a glance

A large ski area spanning two mountains with a long history (Western Canada's first chairlift was erected here in 1947) and one of the biggest verticals in North America. There are acres of groomed trails and a further 700 acres of tree skiing. Slopes descend in all directions from Granite Mountain. The resort is located in a snow belt and has a reputation for abundant falls of light, fluffy powder. The nearby town of Rossland (5 minutes) grew up in the gold rush days.
