RED Moun­tain Re­sort is one of the last great un­spoiled re­sorts. Lo­cated on the first stop of Canada’s fa­mous Pow­der High­way, in­de­pen­dent RED de­liv­ers 2,877 acres of pris­tine, un­fet­tered shred­ding, putting us in the Top 20, size-wise in North Amer­ica. With nearly 25 feet of an­nual snow­fall, (cheap!) in-bounds cat-board­ing, a brand new mod­ern hos­tel and bou­tique ho­tel at the base—Nowhere Spe­cial and The Josie—plus the friendli­est lo­cals around, it’s no won­der The New York Times voted us their “#8 Best Place in the World to Visit.” Fresh turns you don’t have to fight for—that’s RED.


Nowhere Spe­cial: This de­sign-driven mod­ern hos­tel takes a cue from stylish cities like Lon­don and Barcelona and puts you just a two-minute walk from the chair. With prices start­ing at only $40 CAD per per­son with a va­ri­ety of dorm op­tions and com­mu­nity-fo­cused com­mon ar­eas, this will be the place to be. Check out nowhere­spe­cial­hos­ to book now. The Josie Ho­tel: This in­de­pen­dently-owned bou­tique ho­tel at the base should al­le­vi­ate our re­cent “Sold Out Syn­drome.” Stay in style right where you want to be. More de­tails at the­ Par­adise Lodge re­mains a lo­cal fave but just got a se­ri­ous facelift with a new kitchen and 40-per­cent more seat­ing. (Oh, and flush toi­lets). Ex­pan­sion of fa­cil­i­ties for High Per­for­mance Rentals, which means the snow­board fleet dou­bles in size.


RED’s Rock­star En­ergy Ter­rain Park is lo­cated on the T-Bar slope near the base of RED Moun­tain Re­sort. Rid­ers can shred quick laps all day us­ing the T-Bar, or ses­sion one of the many fea­tures. Rid­ers’ right of the T-Bar boosts rider pro­gres­sion with a flowy line of small jumps and rail fea­tures, while rid­ers’ left of the T-Bar gives hard­core shred­ders a chal­lenge with a 30-to-50-foot jump line along with rails of all shapes and sizes—bar­rel, rain­bow, stair­case, flat down, and more.
