RED Mountain Resort Ski Holidays


RED ski holidays are like nothing else. The resort's two mountains, RED and Granite, provide some of the best off-piste skiing in the country.
  • Off the Beaten Track
  • Powder
  • Village Charm

The lack of commercial development means that RED attracts people who are most interested in the snow. You take a lift to the top of either mountain and just ski down - almost anywhere you like.

RED Mountain, as the ski resort used to be called, has produced more Canadian ski team members than anywhere else and remains a genuine local's ski area. Not necessarily a good choice for families but for those wanting a unique and challenging ski holiday experience, this is the place. Accommodation is either in a collection of B&Bs on the mountain or in the nearby old gold-mining town of Rossland.

If you are skiing at RED, you should definitely try and make it to Whitewater for a day. The resort, near the town of Nelson, offers even more awesome off-piste terrain.

"Three words say it all: steep, deep, powder. My ski days in RED are some of my best ever - lift accessible heaven! You may never have heard of RED before but if you are looking for a challenge then go - you won’t regret it."
