FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 27, 2015
ROSSLAND, BC, CANADA

Red Mountain Ventures’ CEO Howard Katkov announced significant changes to the leadership team today, including a new President appointed from within the organization and a new Director of Sales.

Don Thompson will become the President of Red Mountain Ventures, parent company of RED Mountain Resort. In his new role Mr. Thompson will oversee all aspects of resort operations, project and property management.

“In 2002, I came to Rossland to check out this mysterious ski hill I’d heard so much about. Don Thompson was the first guy I met. We are now approaching our thirteenth year together as partners in RED Mountain. I can’t be more proud and confident that Don will continue his great work in this well-deserved new position,” says Katkov. While Katkov is stepping aside from his day to day operational duties as President of the resort, he will stay on as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, with a focus on finance, investor relations, development partnerships and sales and marketing.

Katkov adds, “Don and I have realized in the last twelve years that owning and operating RED Mountain is unlike any other job we have had in the past. Our obligations go beyond the fiduciary duties to our shareholders. Our company is forever linked to the growth and sustainability of the community of Rossland and Don will continue to play a key role in that sustainability.”

When asked about his new position, Thompson said: “I look forward to continually increasing and improving our product lines and services. The opportunity to work with the great RED team in this iconic mountain town is truly exceptional. RED is the heart of the Rossland mountain community and our growth together over the past twelve years has been impressive and gratifying. I really like the direction we are heading in the industry and our brand, history and expansion has positioned us for another great run.”

Also joining the leadership team is ski industry veteran Matt Henry, filling the newly created position of Director of Sales. Matt comes from 20 years of experience selling in the winter-sports category and will lead the business development and expansion of sales for Legacy Training Centre and RED Mountain Resort.

“If there’s one lesson that I have learned in my career, it’s that you have to believe in the products you represent in order to sell them effectively,” says Mr. Henry. “For me, RED Mountain Resort and The Legacy Centre are exactly that: Two authentic brands that I am extremely passionate about. I look forward to using my skills and industry knowledge to help steer the continued growth and success of them both.” “We couldn’t be happier welcoming Matt Henry to the RED Mountain team. Matt’s passion for our community, the resort and the industry will pave the way for continued growth and visibility of RED Mountain,” says Katkov.

These leadership team changes take effect immediately and position RED Mountain Ventures for continued growth. Despite below average snowfall in 2014-15, and a challenging season for resorts throughout the West, RED Mountain has been on a major roll these last few years: Setting new occupancy records; developing the new Legacy Training Centre; opening an entire new mountain on Grey; and winning accolades from major press outlets including the NY Times.

RED Mountain Resort

RED Mountain is the last great, unspoiled resort. Located in Rossland, BC, along Canada’s famous Powder Highway, RED delivers 2,877 acres of pristine skiing unfettered by overdevelopment.  In 2013-14, we added nearly 1,000 acres of mostly-intermediate terrain on Grey Mountain, making RED yet more family-friendly and uncrowded. With 300"/7.6m of annual snowfall, wide-open groomed runs, epic vertical (2,919ft/890m!), in-bounds cat-skiing, 360 degree descents off select peaks, a rich tradition, and the best tree runs on earth, it’s no wonder The NY Times voted us their #8 "Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013." RED’s other recent accolades include #1 in Powder‘s "Ski Town Throwdown," and "Most Underrated Resort" by Skiing. Come and enjoy fresh turns that you don’t have to fight for and find out what none of the fuss is about… www.redresort.com

RED is a 2.5 hour drive north of Spokane International Airport; 3.5 hours from the Kelowna, BC Airport, 30 minutes from Castlegar and 20 minutes from Trail regional airports.

Monday March 30th, 2015

We’ve officially wrapped up our season here at RED Mountain Resort and while it may not have been the best in terms of mother nature happily dumping down on us, we hope you all still had a blast skiing and riding, enjoying the outdoors, kicking back on the deck during those beautiful bluebird days, and maybe even having a drink or two (or three (or four)) with some close friends.

Our final weekend with the top of the mountain open had a great send off with the annual Slush Cup and free deck party. We hope you enjoyed that as much as we did and definitely hope to see you back next winter!

Check out some of the fun photos of our 2015 Slush Cup! Funny fact this year – the water was green! (note to self: don’t use the snow machine guns to fill up the pool next year!)

Did you have a favorite moment during our Slush Cup weekend? Let us know in the comments below.

UPDATE: MONDAY MAR 16, 9:40PM:

Lift tickets will be 10% off starting tomorrow. Off piste terrain will be considered outside the operational Ski Area Boundary and therefore will not be patrolled, entering will be at your own risk.

TODAY: RED Chair, T-bar, and the Carpet are open and free of charge to the public! Come out and get some turns in! Could be your last chance this winter! Rafters will now be closed for dinner service for the rest of the season. Food service will continue from 11am to 5pm daily onwards.


Dear Valued RED Mountain Customers,

Due to unseasonably warm and wet conditions at RED Mountain Resort, we will be closing runs and lift service to Grey, Granite and RED Mountains at 3:30 PM, Sunday March 15, 2015. The low snow levels have created safety concerns and accessibility issues that have required us to make this very difficult decision.
RED Mountain Resort will continue to operate the T-bar and Magic Carpet while conditions permit. These lifts will be free of charge to the public. All resort services are still open.

The Passholder Appreciation Party is scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2015.

Guest Services will be open for 2015-16 pass processing and general inquiries throughout the week.

As always we appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in December.

Hello Friends and pass holders,

Normally, I do not write the introduction to our Early Bird Pass sale programs, however, I thought it would be important to share a few personal thoughts with you. All of us from management, pass holders, destination visitors and people of our community have suffered through a painful winter. According to some, the worst in 42 years. However, with the skill and determination of our staff we have been able to maintain a good ski experience, short those wonderful powder days that we so sorely miss for nearly the entire season. We have faired well in comparison to most other resorts in the west and we have entertained many customers from Rossland and afar with a great overall experience.

As you all know, we are not a “Big Corporate” ski resort but a privately held community resort. We aim to continue to provide improvements to our resort. Such as the Grey Mountain expansion and The Legacy Training Centre. We will be finishing the snow making to the top of Red this summer. The Back Trail snow making system will facilitate snow for future ensured opening and operation of The Legacy Training Centre.

Your loyalty to the resort has been nothing short of amazing for the last 68 years, and as you all know, the purchasing of a season pass is important for our sustainability and we hope, notwithstanding the season as a whole, that you will continue to support your mountain.

Therefore, in hopes of easing the pain as well as encouraging younger generations and families to continue skiing and riding together, we have done the following as a thank you for your loyalty. We will be slashing our Youth Early Bird passes by 46% from $550 to just $299. Junior Early Bird Passes passes will also be reduced by 57% from $350 to just $149. In addition, College Student Early Bird passes will be reduced from $550 to $399. The $399 price will be in effect until September 30, 2015. Finally, Adult, Parent and Senior Couple Early Bird prices remain the same for the third straight year.

RED Mountain Resort’s Early Bird season passes will go on sale from March 14th to April 30th 2015. You can save $300, ski free for the remainder of the year, and of course our interest free financing is still available at the Nelson and District Credit Union – Rossland Branch. These interest-free pass loans are available beginning April 1st thru April 17th 2015 only. We will also maintain all of the great discounts for pass holders at Piste Off, ski lessons and lift tickets at other resorts.

For more information or to purchase, you can go here.

So thank you again for your understanding, empathy and support. It is deeply appreciated.

Cheers,

Howard Katkov
President and CEO
RED Mountain Resort
