Ski Free at Red Mountain in Canada for US Residents

Red Mountain Resort, in Rossland British Columbia, is offering free lift tickets to all U.S. residents for 30 days, through Feb. 5.

While snow is spotty at best further south in the US, Red is white, having piled up two more feet of snow in late December when many U.S. winter resorts were showing rocks. Red's twin mountains are fully open with natural snow, according to the resort.

Red Mountain is just outside Rossland, high above the Columbia River. The resort is a few miles into Canada and 125 miles from its gateway, Spokane International Airport. It is one of our editors favorite getaways for skiing and riding. The atmosphere is old school yet incredible terrain for advanced and expert skiers.

This promotion is the first time a ski resort is running an offering of this magnitude.
“Despite the catastrophic snowfall conditions throughout the resort regions of the California Sierras, Lake Tahoe, Utah, Colorado, and other East Coast resorts, Red Mountain is continuing to deliver the goods—snow,” says an enthusiastic Howard Katkov, president and CEO of Red Mountain Resort.

With snow in full force at Red (1,685 acres/88 runs/2,919 vertical drop), every chair is running at the resort. Additionally, all of Granite and Red mountains’ runs are fully open with 100-percent natural snow. Furthermore, Red’s legendary "side-country" (2,500 acres) is open for the taking. Interested visitors are encouraged to look at flights going into Spokane International Airport in Washington (GEG) or Castlegar Airport (YCG) in British Columbia.
