An even bigger Red

Reason number one you should ski Rossland, BC’s Red Mountain Resort? It gets over 750 centimetres of snow annually, a claim that only five percent of North America’s resorts can make. Reason number two? The 682-hectare resort just launched a two-year expansion that’ll add 405 hectares and a whole new mountain to its in-bound terrain. Like Granite — Red’s other peak — the new Grey Mountain is volcano-shaped so 360-degree skiing around the peak will eventually be possible from one lift, an experience the people at Red call 3D skiing. Only seven of the new 22 runs are open this season and skiers (in groups of nine) are being shuttled to the top of Grey in a new snowcat ($10) for now. What’s more, the expansion elevates Red to the top three percent of all resorts in North America for skiable terrain; even so, the resort will still have less people than Banff and Whistler come Spring Break as The It List, our new column on page 25, spells out.
