Rossland’s historical tale of gold diggers mining their way through the mountains has put the city on the map as one of the most adventurous areas to visit in British Columbia. Don’t judge this city by its size, it is far from small when it comes to its surroundings. As ‘Canada’s Alpine Town’, Rossland’s ski hill - Red Mountain, is known for its wide terrain of snowy slopes. Red Mountain will leave lasting impressions on all who visit, as it is a tantalizing display of beautiful Kootenay territory. The Seven Summit Trails are where mountain bikers head to escape the daily grind. Let nature take its course, and bring your family and friends to beautiful Rossland, B.C.
There is an endless playground of trails for mountain bikers and hikers. Left over from Rossland’s mining days - the wagon road, rail grades and pack trails surround the city with hundreds of kilometers of divine pathway to venture through.
For the winter enthusiasts, fresh powder lies on top of Red Mountain. With over 110 runs spread across three mountain tops, there is over 4,000 acres of skiable terrain to explore.
Stay at Casa Alpina and make your way to the putting green for a round of golf. The stunning 18 hole course at the Redstone Golf Resort is on par with some of Canada’s top golf resorts. This resort is much more than a golf course, as you are surrounded by B.C.’s elaborate scenery and natural wildlife - it may possibly be the best course to tee off at in the West Kootenay area.
