Summary

Red Mountain is up there with the likes of Fernie as a cult resort for expert skiers who can handle its steep terrain, wide glades and powder-filled bowls. While not big in European terms, it packs a lot of tough stuff into its two mountains. The resort has been expanding, but the real attraction is the black and double-black stuff; it’s marked on the map, but not on the mountain. There’s a small ‘village’ at the base, but the old mining town of Rossland is just 3km away.
