A hidden gem, a Red Mountain ski vacation combines convenience with deep, dry snow and exciting, varied terrain. The ski area is considered by some as one of the last great undiscovered resorts. Based out of laid-back Rossland, B.C., Red Mountain is located in the Kootenay region, just two hours from Spokane International Airport. Since the first recorded powder turns were taken back in 1896, Red Mountain has been able to retain the charm on which its reputation was built.
Red Mountain offers something for everyone. The mountain features everything from steep and deep tree skiing to wide-open groomed terrain. Its 88 runs, serviced by six chairlifts, span across two mountains, 4,200 acres of controlled terrain and 2,919 vertical feet. Though hardcore skiers and riders have been heading to Red Mountain for years due to its unique big mountain-style terrain and lack of lift lines, it also offers abundant terrain options for intermediate skiers as well. Even on the busiest weekends there is still plenty of room to spread out and make your own fresh turns through their annual average of 300 inches of “snorkel pow.”
If your ideal ski vacation includes down-to-earth friendly locals, fresh turns and a perpetual smile on your face, then you should start planning your Red Mountain ski vacation today.

Red Mountain should be top-of-mind for powderhounds and experts looking for playful terrain, with a consistent fall line terrain, and a slew of cliffs, spines, and stumps to launch off. The 6,807-foot Granite Mountain acts as a center piece for experts on a Red Mountain ski vacation. With minimal crowds and plenty of North-facing tree runs, you can bet that Red Mountain skiing is typically a deep affair. Experts looking for accessible backcountry or sidecountry ventures will be pleased with the resort’s offering in Mount Roberts, Record Ridge and Kirkup.
Intermediate skiers have a host of long blue runs to choose from, off the top of Granite’s Motherlode chairlift. Intermediates and beginners alike will find even more terrain options on the Paradise side of the resort, making Red an incredible option for a family ski vacation, especially if younger children are just learning to ski, and parents are looking for some world-class powder skiing.
As home mountain to many of the world’s best freestyle and freeride athletes, you can bet that Red Mountains terrain parks pack quite the punch. Red Mountain features nearly 30 features from small to extra-large.
