Rossland and Nelson’s hills are currently up against Crested Butte in Powder Magazine’s Snow Town Throwdown.

In Rossland, skiers and boarders hitting up the hill on Saturday for opening day were impressed with Red Mountain Resort’s higher elevation conditions.

On top of the skier’s good reports, Rossland has also stayed cool the last few days, with snow falling today.

The resort said last week that they have an alpine base of 140 cm on the upper slopes of the mountain, and called it one of their best early season bases in over five years.

Red Resort had Paradise, Motherlode, Silverlode and magic carpet running this past weekend from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
