Often talked about in whispers in the tuning rooms of far-flung shops and après bars, Red is one of those iconic, almost mythical ski hills.
The place has a feeling of history and authenticity that is hard to come by in the more “corporate” ski areas. The ski hill itself has a respectable 890 metres of vertical, 2,877 acres of terrain, 110 runs and seven lifts.
Want to own part of a resort? Red embarked on a very unique crowd funding campaign last year, which has raised an astounding $12.2 million so far. There will be a new accommodation at the base area called the Josie Hotel and Red also added additional parking capacity.
If catskiing is on your bucket list, there is “by-the-day” catskiing available from the base of Red Mountian with Big Red Cats.
The resort’s accommodation is open all year and there are a number of things to during the summer months including: golf, mountain biking and hiking…or getting married.
