Did you know that one of the top ski resorts in the world is just a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Spokane? Red Mountain Resort is situated in the beautiful triangle of British Columbia known as “B.C.’s powder bowl” near Rossland, recently voted Canada’s #1 outdoor town by Explore magazine. Right now, you can experience Red Mountain’s prime conditions at a great discount with the spring 4-pack deal—buy a pack of four lift tickets at 25% off. The tickets are fully transferable.
Red has been called one of the Top Ten Resorts of North America by Forbes Magazine. The average snowfall is around 300 inches, and the area is known and loved for its champagne powder. You can explore 88 runs with six lifts that have short lines. There are plenty of runs for beginners and intermediate skiers, and Red also has some of the most challenging terrain found anywhere and world-renowned tree skiing.
If you stay at Red Mountain Resort Lodge, your kids 12 and under ski free with an adult lift ticket purchase. Also, from March 19–April 19, if you want to take a spring skiing vacation, you’ll get two free nights and two free days of lift tickets when you book three nights of lodging and three days of lift tickets. Room rates start at $213, and some have private hot tubs. Check the deals page for packages that include cat skiing for the more adventurous skiers.
Rossland is a friendly, fun town and the hub of the surrounding vast outdoor recreation opportunities. There are four excellent cross country ski trail networks within an hour’s drive of the town and gorgeous backcountry snow shoeing opportunities. You can hang out between excursions for boutique shopping, great local coffee shops, pubs, and restaurants (Gypsy at Red and Rock Cut Pub are my personal favorites). The historic, charming downtown area makes for a pleasant, exploratory stroll.
