We’ve put together for you some great highlights of the last week/weekend of RED Mountain’s epic 2012/13 season. From the success (and occasional hilarity) of the 5th Annual Gathering Festival and the 80′s rocker party, to the Slush Cup, bikini clad skiers, and The Aggrolites we hope you had as much fun as we did on those last few beautiful and sunny days at the mountain. Can’t wait to see you again next season.
We’re celebrating our recent New York Times accolade by inviting North Americans to ski for free when they visit RED Mountain. Book 3 nights of accommodation at RED Mountain Resort by Feb. 8, 2013 and receive 2 free adult lift tickets for free! Enjoy the mountain that is known for having incredible conditions, amazing powder, and the shortest lift lines in the Kootenays.
RED’s gotten 56 cm’s of snow in the last 3 days and powder runs are the talk of the town. If you haven’t had a chance to shred in the fluffy white stuff yet, get out now! Check out some photos below during the last day of the epic snow dump just to prove to you how good it REALLY is.
See what everyone else is saying too on our Facebook page with how great the snow has been!
December 8 Opening Day no doubt brought some great conditions to RED Mountain. Throngs of riders showed up to greet winter with their weapons of choice waxed, sharpened, and ready to go. What we didn’t know though is that not just excellent conditions would be brought upon RED – a pretty epic story also made its way to Rossland, B.C. – a group of guys from Montana doing whatever it takes to arrive at RED the morning that first chair started up…even if it meant doing a couple of barrel rolls in their car in the process.
We’ve got tons of snow and more snow is on the way! This season is looking to be one of the best in a long time!

RED Mountain resort is proud to announce it’s 2012-2013 season snowcat access to the new runs on Grey Mountain. We’ve purchased a Pisten Bully 200, a snowcat with a spacious cabin that will swiftly shuttle skiers to the peak of Grey. With so much terrain to easily access, these cat runs will deliver some amazing experiences.
Shuttle trips cost $10 a ride, from the top of Rino’s Run on an alpine cat road to the highest point on Grey Mountain.
For the 2012/13 season Grey Mountain will form part of Red Mountain Resorts operating boundary and services will include ski patrol, avalanche control, end of the day sweeping inbounds and out of bounds signage and route mapping. The terrain on Grey Mountain will provide guests with intermediate to advanced ski experiences on un-groomed slopes and glades.
No reservations required. You just ski up to the snow cat stop, located at the intersection of Rino’s Run and Silver Sheep, where you purchase a ticket from the attendant who will ensure you have all the information you need and that you are prepared for your Cat Skiing trip to Grey Mountain.
At RED we were fortunate to have a solid snow season last winter, when many people were hurt by lack of snow. Now the stories are coming in about how great our experience was from some of the most prestigious media outlets in the snow-sports world who were at RED last season. We thought we would share a few with you.

RED Mountain launches one of the largest ski terrain expansions in decades, adds nearly 1,000 acres in-bound terrain
Rossland, British Columbia (September 26, 2012) – Located on BC’s famous “Powder Highway,” RED Mountain Resort just hit overdrive: On August 1, 2012, RED began developing our most significant expansion to date: Grey Mountain. This two-year expansion adds almost 1,000 acres — and a whole new mountain – to our already epic 1,685 acres.
“The scale of this expansion is a true game-changer for RED Mountain Resort and for the community of Rossland,” said Howard Katkov, President and CEO of Red Mountain Resort. “The management team has spent the last eight years carefully reinforcing the company’s infrastructure, investing 50 million dollars in the facilities and completing world class slope-side accommodations. Now we’re truly ready for prime-time. We’ve consciously kept a low profile while we diligently readied ourselves for this massive expansion.”
RED has always been revered for: light, dry snow; world-class tree skiing; incredible steeps; 2,919 feet of vertical; our incredible, laid back vibe and our friendly locals. The Grey Mountain expansion will open up a vast store of intermediate runs, making most “family friendly” resorts pale by comparison. And, like the other mountains, Grey will offer what we call “3-D skiing”:
“Grey, like Granite (RED’s other peak), is volcano-shaped, which allows for 360-degree skiing around the peak from a single lift, a topographical feature few resorts in the world are lucky to have,” explains Katkov.
Chris Cushing, Principal at Snow Engineering (SE) Group, one of the ski resort industry’s premier design and engineering firms, said: “RED Mountain’s expansion to Grey Mountain is the biggest, most exciting project in North America this year, and SE Group is proud to have worked with RED to make it happen. Not only does the expansion increase RED’s skiable terrain by about 1,000 acres, it also adds wide terrain variety -– from groomed cruising runs to tree glades and alpine chutes -– that will create a whole new world for RED skiers. This project is one of the most dramatic transformations of an existing major ski area that we’ve seen and it is one of the largest — if not THE largest — single-season ski area expansion projects in North America in several decades.”
The 997-acre expansion on Grey alone is about the same size as the revered Mt. Baker Ski Area in Washington. To put this in perspective, total acreage with our new terrain on Grey makes RED larger than Jackson Hole, Wyoming. With the new zone, RED is elevated to the top three-percent (3%) of all resorts in North America for skiable acres (2,682!), while keeping its independent soul and escaping the stuffy (and expensive) trappings of many of the Mega Resorts.
For 2012-13, RED will be shuttling skiers, in groups of nine, to the top of Grey using a new snowcat — an oversized snowmobile-bus that has to be seen to be believed. RED has purchased a Poma Quad Chair for installation next summer. At the completion of run development, Grey Mountain will have 22 perfect ski runs, leaving plenty of trees and terrain variations for riders to express themselves on.
“We see the Grey expansion as an expression of our commitment to the next generation of skiers and snowboarders, as well as to our current fans,” explains Fran Richards, Vice President, Marketing. “We share their values when it comes to mountain recreation and feel a deep responsibility to protect the wonderful ski experience at RED. We truly see RED as an endangered species, one of the last resorts that celebrates the true skiing experience: offering wide open terrain and all the amenities one expects, without the rampant commercialism that has significantly changed the face of the ski experience throughout North America. Many recreational skiers and snowboarders have never experienced a pure world like RED and we’d like to show them that the other side is, in fact, better.”
RED Mountain is located in Rossland, BC, a scenic mining town dating back to 1897. It is the oldest ski area in Western Canada and the last great, undiscovered resort in North America. Last Year, The NY Times rated RED as one of the Top Three ski areas in North America for Advanced skiers.
