“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.
