Red Mountain

Located in beautiful British Columbia, a mere five miles from historic Rossland, Red Mountain vacation homes give a glimpse into the wonderment that surrounds this majestic area.  Within driving distance to major city centres, including Kelowna and Spokane, Washington, Red Mountain rentals ensure easy access yet provide the serenity that is sought out in this resort destination.  Keeping nature close at hand, Red Mountain accommodations deliver spectacular outdoor scenery while keeping its visitors warm and comfortable inside.  Year-round activities entertain guests upon some of the most impressive skiing and mountain biking trails in all of North America.  With so much to see and do within the area of Red Mountain, guests will find their itineraries filled full of action-packed fun for the entire family.  Rich with heritage, Rossland continues its roots through active mining but taking the rural town to new heights and bringing serious notoriety to the area, mountain bikers can expect to find some of the best trails in the entire nation.

Red Mountain does not begin and end with mountain biking, however.  Named as one of the Top 10 Resorts in North America by Forbes Magazine, intense invigoration can be felt down any of the 88 trails that spread across two mountains.  Encompassing 1,685 acres of skiable terrain, Red Mountain goes one step further with its wide-open groomers and powdery glades.  Appealing to everyone, Red Mountain brilliantly divides its level of abilities amongst beginner, intermediate and advanced runs and provides a the ultimate mountain experience.  Ensuring visitors are able to maximize this magnificent resort, Red Mountain prides itself on its short lines by offering six lifts with a capacity upwards of 7,000 skiers and riders each and every hour.  Further amusement, comes in the form of Red's Terrain Park which recently was installed with jumps and jibs and is topped off by the permanent skier / boarder-cross course.  Situated within a short distance to Red Mountain, Blackjack Cross Country Club provides Nordic-enthusiasts with 30km of groomed trail.

The somewhat unexpected recreation comes in the form of a myriad of events and activities to suit every taste and satisfy all curiosities.  As the very first "Les Furber Signature Course" golfers are treated to some of the best mountain fairways in the West Kootenays.  Other adventures include guided walking trails, tours of underground gold mines, boutique shopping and art galleries.
