A daily shuttle service from Rossland to Red Mountain Resort and back began in earnest Dec. 14 and will continue until the end of the ski season.

The free shuttle bus will run every 45 minutes (with a one-hour break in the afternoon) looping between downtown Rossland and the Red Mountain neighbourhood every day all winter.

Full details of the shuttle can be found here: http://www.tourismrossland.com/winter-free-ride-ski-bus including a downloadable schedule.

The shuttle would run from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The shuttle would run every day that Red Mountain is operating for the winter of 2013/14 with a finishing date no later than April 6.

The bus would make loops through downtown and back to the Red Mountain area on a fixed schedule of almost continuous loops, including the Prestige Mountain Resort, Flying Steamshovel/Idgies, Alpine Grind, Seven Summits/Casa Alpina, Rock Cut Pub and Red Mountain.

The route would be determined by stakeholder buy in and feasibility of routes.

The contractor would operate a 24-passenger side loading bus with space to store skis and boards.

As well, people can book an after hours shuttle from Rossland to Red Mountain, 10:30 p.m.-12 a.m. for $45 per trip (pre booked). From 12-1 a.m. a shuttle can be pre booked for $65 per trip.
