A letter from RED CEO, Howard Katkov, Regarding 2020/21 Season Passes and COVID-19
To our Passholder families and those who simply love to ski at RED Mountain,
I have been fortunate enough to be your CEO of RED Mountain for nearly 17 years. In my tenure, we have encountered a variety of challenges, including the recession of 2008, challenging snow years and our normal growing pains. In spite of all that has been thrown our way, we have maintained what we all love: our mountains, our staff, and our community of Rossland, the backbone of what makes RED great.

Monday, March 16th Update
UPDATE: OPERATIONS SUSPENDED FOR REMAINDER OF THE SEASON
After thorough consideration of the dynamic nature of Coronavirus Covid-19 and recommendations by Federal and Provincial Health Authorities, RED Mountain Resort has decided it will suspend all operations effective March 17th for the remainder of the season. March 16th is the final day of the season.
Our absolute top priority is the health and well being of our guests and employees – and to no lesser extent the health and well being of the community of Rossland. We know each decision we make has a significant impact on the people and businesses in our community.
This difficult decision has not been made lightly, but we know it is prudent under the current Covid-19 status. We sincerely apologize to you, our guests, for this inconvenience and request your patience with guest services and lodging as we process inquiries, and prepare informational updates to our website and social media platforms. Guest Services will continue to stay open for any Early Bird Season Pass purchasing. We encourage ALL Early Bird purchases to be done online, and can be done so here: www.redresort.com/mountain/season-passes/
This is an unprecedented time for everyone. We appreciate the support which we have received from all of you and we thank you for that. We will get through this together.
