The « Queen City » of the Kootenays

Deep in British Columbia’s Kootenay region exists a one of a kind experience, one that is often hard to define. For those with a passion for epic winters, in a most unique and authentic setting, there is a place… Whitewater Ski Resort.

Why go there?
  • Quantity of exceptional powder
  • Perfect atmosphere for skiing
  • Opportunity to ski in Red Mountain

Red Mountain Resort has been named one of the Top Ten Resorts of North America by Forbes Magazine, and is quickly becoming one of North America’s most sought-after mountain destinations.

At Red, visitors can choose from 110 runs spread across two stellar mountains that feature everything from wide-open groomers to steep, powder-filled glades. With more than 2,682 skiable acres and 880 meters (2,919 feet) of vertical terrain serviced by 7 total lifts, there is a lot to explore at Red. The abundant snow, friendly staff and locals, and the short lift lines are just a few reasons why guests fall in love with Red.

Ski Canada has once again placed Red Mountain Resort’s trees, steeps and powder amongst the best in Canada. Along with this, Red’s Silverlode and Paradise areas offer plenty of wide-open groomed runs for beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders.
