Nestled in the heart of RED Mountain Resort, BC, lies a collection of six cabins with premium ski-in, ski-out access to the resort’s aptly named Paradise Basin. The cozy buildings, erected in 2020, along with a central clubhouse, make up The Constella; as a nod to the infamously striking Kootenay sky, each cabin has been dubbed the name of a constellation. A night spent at The Constella will trick you into thinking you have been transported out of this world until you hit the slopes for first tracks in the morning and remember that you’re in Paradise. 

Prices start at $134 and are based on the number of people staying. New for this season, the price also includes dinner, a welcome après drink and snacks for everyone, and baggage transport.

The Constella was built with one goal in mind—to make skiers’ bucket lists a little longer. Available for one or two-night stays, each cabin includes arrangements for up to five people.

As part of The Constella experience, breakfast is available for purchase (coffee is on the house) along with refreshments at the now fully licensed clubhouse bar; bringing in outside food and beverage is permitted as well. RED’s commitment to service, along with the placement of the mid-mountain burg, allows its dwellers to make the most out of their slope time and provides a welcome reprieve from the winter wind after the lifts stop running for the day. Relax after a hard day shredding with a drink by the new outdoor firepit and covered deck seating.

The convenience of staying at one of The Constella cabins implores skiers to take advantage of the unique terrain offerings at RED, including 360 and 270-degree access to Granite Mountain and Grey Mountain, respectively. With three additional peaks, making for 3,850 acres of terrain to carve, the resort is a playground for skiers looking to mix up their typical terrain coverage.

Perfect for elevating a trip to the mountains without giving up an inch of the quaint mountain atmosphere and untouched powder, booking at The Constella hits the mark for any skier looking for a hidden gem and stories to take back home.
