Opening Day RED Mountain Resort: Dec. 9th


Today RED Mountain Resort (aka RED) announced its Opening Day as well: Saturday December 9th.

What does this mean? That both nearby ski resorts, RED and WH2O, are planning to open only a day apart as Whitewater's tentative Opening Day is Friday, December 8th.

Because of its impressive snowpack (annual snowfall of 40+ ft) as well as its laid-back, familial atmosphere and at a short 20m drive door to door, Whitewater is the go-to Resort for most of our guests. The ones who stay with us longer than a few nights like to ski at least a day at RED as well. Red Mountain is a bit further out but very accessible at an hours drive (75km), just outside the charming town of Rossland.

"At RED, visitors can choose from 110 runs spread across three stellar mountains that feature everything from wide-open groomers to steep, powder-filled glades. With more than 2,682 skiable acres and 890 meters (2,919 ft) of vertical terrain serviced by 7 total lifts, there is a lot to explore at RED." ~ RED. On top of that Red Mountain's annual snowfall peaks out on average at 25 ft, all in all reason to enjoy a day at this impressive resort as well.
