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.

Located deep in Southern Alberta right on the Alberta/B.C. border Castle Mountain is tucked away in a spot that not many travel to, making it another sleepy hill. This mountain has a small mountain feel with some serious big mountain terrain and a ton of backcountry to explore in the right conditions. [ Read More ]
This mountain about an hour out of Calgary is one of the best little big mountains around, and in my mind the closest legitimate mountain to Calgary. The resort itself is located in the Kananaskis Region of Alberta, which is about 25 km east of the B.C./Alberta border and in the most easterly part of the Rocky Mountains. This location at the edge of the Rockies provides Fortress with quite a bit ... [ Read More ]
