The Powder Highway

The Powder Highway is the name of a common marketing initiative of the member ski resorts located in the southeast corner of British Columbia, Canada. Linked by a common thread of the highways that join them, they also share another common trait – deep powder!

Home to three airports, the Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC, Cranbrook), the West Kootenay Regional in Castlegar (YCG) and the Trail Regional (YZZ) airports and the fore mentioned all-weather highway system, the skiing in this geographical area is easily accessed.

Other International gateways (located either a short drive away or a quick flight) are the found in these major centres – Calgary, Alberta; Spokane, WA; Kalispell, MT; Kelowna, BC and Kamloops, BC.

When you visit Red Mountain, you can also make arrangements to visit any of the other resorts, heli-skiing, cat skiing and cross country skiing facilities in the immediate area.

The Rossland Trails

Our local network of trails consists of over 200 km of single track trails that are maintained and topographically mapped by the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society. All trails are graded for difficulty with plenty of Easy, Intermediate, Expert and Advanced Only trails. Also, they are all sign posted in the woods so it’s easy to tell where you are and where you want to go. Download the topographical map that the Trails Society produces. It is available on line or at the store. There’s also plenty of non-official trails resulting from private efforts to satisfy even the hungriest of riders.

Our Seven Summits Trail received IMBA Epic status in 2005 and BIKE mag’s ‘Trail of the Year’ in 2007. It’s an awesome alpine ridge ride traversing 30 km of the southern Monashee Mountains. Please make sure to check the weather before heading out on any of our longer rides.

Red Mountain Trail Map

Red Resort ski area is compact but it packs a lot into the 683 hectares and 880 metres of vertical. There is beginner terrain and plenty of intermediate cruisers, but the main bias of the resort is towards expert riders and powderhounds. The two mountains within the resort (Red Mountain and Granite Mountain) are serviced by six slow lifts, and mid-week you will pretty much have the lifts and terrain to yourself. In addition to the in-bounds terrain, there are also stacks of easily accessed backcountry runs.

Most skiers and snowboarders have heard of Red Mountain Resort, but in some respects it is still an undiscovered ski destination. The few that do know about the wonders of Red enjoy the major benefits of the uncrowded slopes. Another drawcard for Red is the incredibly friendly and laid back vibe of the resort and the nearby town of Rossland. Some visitors come on a ski holiday to Red and never leave because they fall in love with the place. The Scandinavians that came for the gold rush in 1890 were probably also inflicted with the love bug when they discovered that the real treasure was the snow and the great tree skiing and terrain.

City of Rossland Map

From Wikipedia:

Rossland is a city in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. Tucked high in the Monashee Mountains, Rossland is at an elevation of 1023 meters (3410 feet). Population today is approximately 3500; a number that fluctuates from season to season. The population is at its peak during the winter. But back in 1897, as a result of a gold rush, Rossland for a time was one of Western Canada’s largest cities. A number of historic buildings survive from this time. Rossland has been known as the ‘Mountain Bike Capital of Canada’ since 1993 when it was awarded this title, with an extensive trail system radiates from the outskirts of the town. Also nearby is Red Mountain Resort, rated as one of the best in the world for the hard-core skier or snowboarder.
