RED Mountain is home to people who love to race to the top and fly to the bottom, and also those who hike or stroll or amble. It’s home to those who don’t care about the weather, who love spring and fall as much as winter and summer, because there’s joy in all of it. And soon, it could be home to you.
Maybe it’s the steeps, or the deeps, or the fall line skiing, or the sheer joy of speed. Whatever it is, RED grows racers like other mountains grow alpine flowers. It’s a thing we do here. Your kids are going to love it.
RED Mountain and Rossland have proven to be fertile terrain for Olympians in both winter and summer events, but the greatest of them all is Nancy Greene, who started skiing at RED when she was three. She won the World Cup twice, two Olympic medals at Grenoble in 1968, and had a distinguished career as a ski industry booster and resort developer. Must be something in the snow.
RED may fly under the radar, but it’s high in rankings of ski resorts. Here are some big numbers: with 3,850 skiable acres, we’re in the top 10 among North American mountains, and we’re first in most acres per skier, meaning there’s more than enough room for all. We offer five different mountains, 119 marked runs—and so much more—and 2,929 feet of vertical drop.
RED is a mountain that’s accessible, but not too easy. It’s a place people have heard of, but it’s not for everybody. It’s inviting and it’s also proud of its independence. RED’s ready for you if you’re ready for RED.
RED would be amazing if it was just a winter resort. But it’s got everything—the summer trails that hikers and bikers love, the lakes and rivers of legend, nearby golf courses such as Redstone Golf Course, Birchbank Golf Course, Castlegar Golf Club and a community that comes out to play every single day.
