You may not have heard of Red Mountain Resort, but it is a real “GEM” in Canada’s “Powder Highway”
The resort is currently made up of three peaks, Red, Granite and Grey, and you can pretty much ride / ski where ever you want to go within the ski boundary, just pick your line and go………..
There are some mellow runs, but the terrain is probably better suited to the intermediate and advanced and will be loved by those looking for great blacks, and double blacks. Great tree runs and powder galore, so if you want to improve your skills in the powder, trees and off piste you can dip in and out building your confidence as you go.
There is a resort operated Cat-Ski area on Mt Kirkup, priced at $10 per run so this is a great way to try Cat-Skiing without breaking the bank. Or alternatively there is an independent operator in Red Village for those wanting to go for the day, they have terrain off site which you travel to via mini bus after meeting for breakfast and safety checks. Unfortunately we didn’t book this in advance and they were fully booked for the duration of our stay, so I would advise to book this before you travel to avoid disappointment.
It snowed every day of our visit, by the end of a week we had a good 2.5 feet of snow on the roof of our hire car !!!! We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend a visit. Red is now in our top 3 Canadian resorts.
