Red Mountain is a ski resort in Granite, Grey, and the Red Mountains in Rossland, western Canada. Rossland was once a gold mining town in the West Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia. Red Mountain is one of North America’s oldest ski hills. Its development started with the foundation of the Red Mountain Ski Club (RMSC) during the 1900’s first decade.
