Beginner/Intermediate Skiers and Riders
Beginner skiers and riders can hone their skills on RED’s magic carpet slope or on the new beginner terrain accessible by the Silverlode chairlift. If you need a little assistance in getting started on the right foot, contact one of our many friendlySnowsports Instructors for a lesson today.
If you wish to ride to the top of Granite Mountain via the Motherlode Chair, the easiest way down is taking Rino’s Run or the Southside Road. Grey Mountain and the Paradise Basin have mostly intermediate runs; and you can access Paradise Lodge with either green or blue runs.
Advanced/Expert Skiers and Riders
This is where RED Mountain Resort really shines! Ranked the 8th Best Place in the World to visit in 2013 by The New York Times, and ranked Third Best Terrain by SBC Resort Guide, need we say more. Depending on your skill level…
You can also venture over to the north side of Grey Mountain where you’ll find a variety of steep chutes that will give any advanced skier a run for their money – Helter Smelter, Burn One Down or I Drop The Line just to name a few.
Telemark skiing is a twist on the sport that we’re all familiar with – they use freeheel bindings rather than the fixed bindings that skiers use. RED Mountain Resort entertains a healthy telemark skier contigient that enjoy our easy backcountry access and gladed runs.
