Discover: Canada's #1 Outdoor Town, Rossland, BC

As one of the coolest small towns in Southern B.C., Canada, Rossland has got it going on. With a population of roughly 4,000 year round residents, these lucky folks get to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer - from mountain biking, cycling, and golf in the spring, summer, and fall, to some of the best (and most affordable) winter skiing and snow boarding in all of Western Canada.

And that's why visitors and locals love Rossland. It's a trendy but yet down to earth place filled with wandering souls and seasonal ski hill employees from Australia, doctors from the neigboring town of Trail, B.C., and most of all, families. It's a perfect natural setting amongst the pine trees of the Monashee Mountains with the amazing fresh air only attainable at their 3,400 foot elevation.

And with that elevation comes snow and Red Mountain Resort, known for both its world class accommodation and skiing including 86 runs, 2 mountains, and amazing champagne powder. Visitors can find accommodations ranging from youth hostels, to smaller mom and pop owned hotels, all the way up to brand new ski in/ski out condos located at the base of Red Mountain.
