Endless winter activities in Rossland, BC.
Here, winter means 300” of powder, epic vertical, 360-degree tree skiing, and all the fun under the winter sun you can imagine. Whether you’re interested in skiing, snowboarding, cat-skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or fat biking, Rossland has you covered. And, when you’re done experiencing why The New York Times voted RED and Rossland the “8th Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013”, the warmth of Josie’s spa (and cocktail lounge) will be waiting to help you recuperate.
RED Mountain Resort
These are just a few of Josie’s favorite things: 300 inches—almost eight metres—of annual snowfall, groomers you can open the throttle up on, 2,129 feet of vertical, in-bounds cat-skiing, 360-degree descents, and some of the bucket-list tree skiing and snowboarding in the west. We understand why The New York Times voted RED Mountain Resort and Rossland the eighth “Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013.”
Big Red Cats
With 19,300 acres and eight peaks, Big Red Cats takes RED Mountain Resort and elevates it to another world. With a special focus on tree skiing and glades, Big Red goes deeper into the forests, and allows you to emerge as your own personal hero. Expert, advanced and intermediate available for both skiers and riders.

Cross Country SkiingThe Black Jack Cross Country Ski Club features 40 kilometres of groomed trails for both classic and skate skiing, a biathlon range, a two-kilometre doggy loop, three cozy cabins, and 2.5 kilometres of lit trails for nighttime ripping. It’s one of Canada’s premier cross-country ski facilities with programs for all ages and abilities. It’s so good, one in six Rossland residents is a member. Josie’s one of them.
SnowshoeingFrom mellow side-slopes to steep-and-challenging trails, snowshoeing isn’t the passive activity you think it is. Consider Strawberry Pass, a circuit of sixteen stylish, funky cabins with custom artwork. Collectively, they make for a quintessential Kootenays experience. Yes, Josie can get you rental snowshoes.
Fat BikingOversized tires and even bigger versatility, fat bikes excel in unstable terrain like snow and sand. In Rossland’s famously snowy forest, the fat bike reigns king. The ski concierge at The Josie can hook up a rental and show you the trails.
Curling, Skating, & Hockey
Ice on the mountain can be a challenge, but it’s nothing but fun in the arena. From hockey to curling, Canada can’t be Canada without a good clean sheet of ice and a team of friends to get ridiculous with. The Rossland Arena offers exactly that. See you on the ice.
