Skiing: Red takes global honours

Red mountain has been honoured with the Most Improved North American Resort Award as well as the global Best Upcoming Resort Award.

The World Snow Awards recognized recent renovations to Red Mountain Resort by honouring the Rossland ski hill with Most Improved North American Resort Award as well as the global Best Upcoming Resort Award.

“The World Snow Awards recognize outstanding service to ski and snowboard consumers across categories covering resorts, travel, retail, equipment and technology.” said Henry Druce, Editor of Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Magazine, and Chair of the judging committee, in a release.

Red Mountain Resort took home the Most Improved North American Resort award “based on the significant increases in accessible terrain, and ultimately on the experience for the consumer,” commented Tim Holmes, spokesman for of the World Snow Awards.

Red Mountain’s massive new expansion of more than 997 acres on Grey Mountain is set to open this winter and has helped elevate the status and visibility of this un-crowded, world-class resort.

Award winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts.
