RED is a hidden gem. The resort is well known for its light, dry powder that all skiers and snowboarders covet. It offers 3,850 acres of skiable terrain served by eight lifts across three peaks and a further two peaks easily accessible by booting or skinning.

As one of the top 10 largest ski resorts In North America, RED Mountain Resort offers up some of the most terrain, without the crowds. It’s ranked #1 for The Most Acres Per Skier. It’s all the snow, without the lift lines or tracked-out conditions.

Combine this skiing experience with the low-key, unpretentious vibe of nearby Rossland, BC, which has been voted the #1 ski town by USAToday for the last two years, then it’s clear the locals live the good life.

But what, exactly, is The Good LifeWho better than those living it, the lucky guys at RED Mountain Resort, to explain:

The short version is it’s what makes RED, um, you know RED.

The long-winded version? It’s the product born from the reasons we love RED & Rossland, why we moved here, and why we can’t shut up about “it” —whether that’s epic powder days or ridiculous caesar sessions at Rafters.

It’s what we’re missing when we shred somewhere else.

It’s the ancient telemarker with so much ice in his beard that he looks like a Tundra Wookie, but who shares with you the sickest tree run you’ve ever bagged in your life. It had no name. And neither did he.

It’s the four-generation family all shredding together—at speed.

It’s staff and locals who treat you like you are one of us — because you ARE one of us and just don’t know it quite yet!

And that unboring history you can feel from the locker room to the main drag in Rossland. This place oozes skiing from its very pores. And we know you wouldn’t have it any other way.

You know The Good Life when you see it. When you feel it. When it’s blasting you in the face with its cold, perfect powder. You can share it with your friends but you can never quite explain it to folks who’ve never felt it first-hand. Mostly you just babble and speak in sound effects and sometimes drool a bit with a glazed look in your eye.

So folks. Welcome to RED. Welcome to the Good Life.
