Incredible golf for half the year, but winter? The epic Powder Highway® is truly magical!
Here in Rossland, BC, Redstone Resort & Golf Course boasts the only Les Furber “Signature” golf course in Canada. Offering incredible opportunities for golfers of all ages and levels of skill, Redstone makes vacationing and living here a beautiful and memorable experience every day. And that’s just in spring, summer, and fall.
In winter, this region comes alive in an entirely different and exciting way. Here, nestled in our Kootenay Rockies, right here in our own backyard, world-renowned Red Mountain – one of the oldest ski areas in North America – offers one of the most epic and powder-filled stops along the epic POWDER HIGHWAY®.
Only five minutes away, some Rossland-ers ski or snowboard home after a day on the slopes. Some Red mountain staff commute to and from work on fat bikes instead of driving – it’s that close! And when you look at Rossland’s history, skiing is deeply intertwined. Since the 19th century, new immigrants, prospectors, and miners explored and adventured amidst the breathtaking peaks on long wooden skis before the first chairlift was introduced in 1949.
Powder Highway – where and what is it?
Weaving in and out of some of British Columbia’s most scenic, quaint, and funky towns, including Rossland, the Powder Highway provides skiers and snowboarders from all over the world with some of the best powder and winter adventures in the world.
Now legendary, this stretch of skiing, resort and backcountry, offers deep and abundant Kootenay powder enhanced by authentic, vibrant ski towns. Our region stands out as a premier skiing destination.
Between towns like Rossland and Nelson, Revelstoke, Golden, Invermere, Kimberley, and Fernie, this renowned ski and snowboard route cuts through various celebrated mountain ranges – Selkirks and Purcells, the Rockies, and the Monashees. Truly your road to winter!
First stop – Rossland and RED Mountain
Begin your journey along the Powder Highway here. Unless you’re afraid you won’t leave!
Considered the “last, great, unspoiled resort”, our own RED Mountain offers skiers and snowboarders 4200 pristine acres without the burden of overdevelopment you’ll find at other mountains. With 300 inches or over 7.5 metres of annual snowfall, you’ll find broad, open groomers, epic vertical, in-bounds cat-skiing and 360-degree descents off of select peaks. It’s no surprise to anyone who’s had the pleasure of experiencing the amazingness of RED that, in addition to ranking #1 in Powder’s “Ski Town Throwdown” and “Most Underrated Resort, by Skiing, it was ranked #8 “Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013”, by the NY Times.
Rossland, like RED Mountain, is a blissfully undiscovered ski destination – a summer destination, too! Much like the mountain, the village of Rossland is a tranquil and uncrowded place, quaint and inviting – people come and never leave. The Scandinavians who arrived for the gold rush in 1890 clearly succumbed to the charm and beauty of the area. Like them, we understand the gem that Rossland is; only made that much more alluring thanks to the ample snow and incredible terrain.
