Red Mountain Resort Ski Map

Red Mountain British Columbia

For many American skiers in the inland Northwest, Red Mountain is their introduction to British Columbia skiing. And what an introduction it is! Red Mountain is a world-class resort, among world-class resorts. It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it gets a whole lot of snow every year, 300 inches on average, to be exact. And that snow falls on some of the most interesting terrain on either side of the border. A solid 37% of Red’s named runs are classified as expert-only, but that doesn’t mean you need to be a seasoned skier to have fun at Red Mountain. In fact, it’s a great place to visit no matter how long you’ve been sliding around on snow. There are plenty of beginner and intermediate runs, and seven lifts make navigating the mountain easy.

And one of the most important aspects of Red Mountain is its ease of access. It’s only 2.5 hours from the Spokane International Airport, so it’s easy to fly to, or it’s only 3.5 hours from Kelowna, for more local Canadian visitors. James Niehues painted this Red Mountain ski map in 2007 and depicted not just Granite and Grey Mountain, where Red is situated, but also surrounding peaks like Mount Roberts, as well as the beautiful valley and base area that serve Red. This map is the perfect decoration or gift for anyone that loves skiing this gem of BC’s interior.
