Premier Listings for Red Mountain Ski Resort

Red Resort on Red Mountain and Granite Mountain in south central British Columbia is renowned for its bountiful powder and varied terrain, a paradise for skiers and boarders alike. Choose from over 83 runs on two mountains that will take you down treed slopes, wide-open groomers, or steep, powder-filled bowls. With over 1200 acres, and 2900 vertical feet, there’s lots to explore.

Red Resort is host to downhill skiing and snowboarding in some awesome terrain, including a half pipe built on the mountain every winter. The terrain is also great for snowmobiling, and cross-country skiers and snowshoers have access to four adjacent peaks, none more than 1.5 hours away by way of skis and skins.

Red Mountain is located near the Canada/US border in south Central British Columbia, 28 miles (45 km) south of Castlegar, and just 3 miles (5 km) west of the historic gold mining town of Rossland, which combines rugged outdoor adventure with small town warmth and hospitality.
