Red Mountain to Add 1,000 Acres
Nearly doubling its size
British Columbia’s Red Mountain ski resort will add 1,000 acres of terrain over the next two years, nearly doubling its size. The additional terrain includes a new peak, Grey Mountain, and will increase the number of runs by 22. “Grey, like Granite (RED’s other peak), is volcano-shaped, which allows for 360-degree skiing around the peak from a single lift, a topographical feature few resorts in the world are likely to have,” said Red Mountain CEO and President Howard Katkov. Red plans to add a high-speed quad lift to the mountain in time for next season; this year, they will shuttle skiers to the top. The expansion puts Red in the top three percent of North American resorts for total skiable acres.
