The right destination can make all the difference when going on a ski vacation. One of the more fun locales that many people overlook is Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, British Columbia. Located in Southeastern British Columbia, Red Mountain Resort has been very popular for a very long time. Regulars who go there know to expect a top quality skiing experience.
Red Mountain Resort has seven lifts and 110 marked runs. The entire ski area covers over 4,000 acres and offers ski runs rated for beginners, intermediate, and advanced skiers. The longest ski run is 4.3 miles which makes for a great trip down the mountain. While named Red Mountain Resort, the skiing actually happens on Red Mountain, Granite Mountain, and Grey Mountain.
I’ve been lucky enough to have gone to the Red Mountain Resort area in both winter and summer. The skiing there is great and the atmosphere and offerings in the lodges and restaurants are excellent too. If you’re not a skier and are instead into summer activities like mountain biking, then this is still the place for you. There are a number of mountain bike trails in the area and the lodge remains open to give you that meal and refreshment you desire when you’re finished out on the trail. There are also some great hiking and sight seeing opportunities both on the resort property as well as on the surrounding mountainsides.
Red Mountain Resort really is a full service and year round attraction worth visiting. You simply cannot go wrong, regardless of the time of year you choose to visit there in.
