Red Mountain Resort claims 28% of the runs in the ski area are double blacks. That's definitely a bit more than average! There is a ton of vertical on the 3 mountains that make up Red. It is probably one of the best places in BC to be on a powder day during a season when the snowpack is good.

At the base of Red is the original ski area, which has been lift accessed for over 60 years. The Red Chair is a steep double that will take you to the top of Red Mountain. At just under 1600 meters, it's the lowest peak of the 3 mountains. Lower down, the T-Bar services the terrain park area.

To access the rest of the ski area you must take the beginner area Silverlode quad, then the Motherlode triple. That will take you to the top of Granite Mountain. There are 360 degrees of descents off of this peak, including some of the steepest, highest terrain in the area. If/when you're over that, drop into the Paradise Chair area, or to the Gray Mountain quad. These areas still have some gnar, but there is also some cruisers available.

Red has a good vibe and some incredible terrain. If you can make the trip it's usually worth a visit.

You aren't going to find the driest powder here as the ski area lies between 1070-1551 meters, ... [ Read More ]
About half way between Vancouver and Calgary, and just off of Highway 1, is the city of Revelstoke, dam of Revelstoke, and ski resort of Revelstoke. They like the name Revelstoke in Revelstoke, and apparently some of them like skiing and snowboarding as well. This resort uses high speed lifts to access a large amount and variety of terrain, making it one of the best advanced ski areas in BC. [ Read More ]
Sunshine Village is a big mountain resort close to Calgary and Banff. It's made up of several mountains if you want to get specific, but the entire ski area is accessed by one lift at the base lodge. Fortunately this lift is the Gondola, and is the fastest lift and has the highest capacity, so the base area doesn't get too bottlenecked with the crowds. [ Read More ]
