The ski hill is the oldest in Western Canada according to Red. Red has also recently received recognition from some other notable sources.

SBC Skier magazine named Red one of its top five freeride spots in their 2011/12 Resort Guide.Ski Canada magazine named Red’s extensive terrain last month as the best place to get lost.

“Skiing Powderfields…means never taking the same line, but never leaving the trail map,” the magazine said.

Ski Canada called the resort’s “side-country” terrain the ‘Best New Playground:’ The magazine was impressed with the more than 120 hectares of off-piste terrain on nearby Grey Mountain.

Ski Canada also named Rossland the Best Ski Bum Town this year. Rossland is home to the original ski bum, Olaus Jeldness, and will be celebrating 115 years of skiing—and living to ski at this year’s Rossland Winter Carnival.

Ski Canada also recognized Red with Best New Day Lodge honours, saying that the long-awaited renovation to the original base lodge is finally finished and is getting good reviews.
