Red open to public for weekend of night skiing

Red Mountain opens its T-bar slope to the public this Friday and Saturday evenings.

With plenty of snow coming in the forecast, resident skiers can get an early taste of powder as Red Mountain opens its T-bar slope to the public this Friday and Saturday evenings only, in advance of its December opening date.

The T-bar will transport shredders up the slope for night skiing from 6-9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday with costs $5 for juniors and seniors, $10 adults, and $25 for family of four.

Thanks to the $1.5 million investment in the state of the art snowmaking system the hill already has a good base and skiers from Whitewater, Washington State, and Red Mountain Racers have been taking advantage of the Legacy Training Centre and hitting the gates for more than a week now.

With the investment, Legacy has provided coverage of up to two GS and six Slalom lanes on the Racer Pitch (T-bar), and upper sections of the Back Trail for its inaugural year.

Red is scheduled to open Dec. 13.
