Red Mountain

Red Resort was recently rated the number one resort in the world for the hard-core skier or snowboarder, and the reasons why are not difficult to see. Red has acres and acres of terrain (1200 to be exact) spread over two great mountains – Red Mountain and Granite Mountain, making this resort a skiers/boarders paradise! Red Resort has some of the best tree and glade skiing on the planet.

All 360 degrees of Granite Mtn are accessible from the Motherlode triple chair that runs up the north face. From the top, you will get a spectacular view that is unlike any other, and then you can ski the 2800 vertical feet of 100% natural Kootenay powder! The south side of Granite is named ‘Paradise Basin’, so named for the gentle intermediate terrain that is home to some of the best spring skiing around. This area is served by the Paradise triple chair.
