Experience Rossland.

Rossland is located in the beautiful Kootenay Rockies Region of British Columbia, Recently voted Canada’s #1 Outdoor Town by Explore magazine, the Rossland area is a natural playground for adventure seekers from around the world. Located on the Powder Highway, Rossland offers both summer and winter charm. An unpretentious community which still offers a unique and authentic experience to all of our visitors.

Explore at your own pace. Forget “doing it all” because there’s a LOT to do. Actually, forget doing anything if you prefer peace and quiet to adrenaline surges. Ride a horse. Ride a bike. Ride a golf cart. Ride a bar stool. We won’t judge. Just get up here and stay long enough to let all that special seep in.

Past. Present. Future. It all comes together at The Josie.

Everyone has a past. We think the history of Rossland, BC and its location in the West Kootenays is pretty interesting. And, it’s what helped to shape The Josie’s personality. Pull up a chair and we’ll tell you about it.

Rafters at RED Mountain Resort
Rafters is the quintessential apres-ski bar, filled with nostalgia from Red’s heydays. Located across from The Josie on the 3rd level of the new Day Lodge at RED Resort, Rafters will serve you up draft beer, wine, hot drinks, with a full liquor bar.

The Flying Steamshovel
The Shovel, as the locals say is the place to be to enjoy tasty fair, a game of pool or test your skill with a game of Neglin. Be warned, if you lose you’ll be buying a round.

Rossland Beer Company
Join the locals for a pint or two after a day biking in our mountains or skiing on the slopes.

Shopping strip in Rossland, BC.


Independently charming. Rossland's not like some resort towns where the "town" feels more like a "strip mall." No, this is the real deal with many boutique experiences that you can't find anywhere else on earth. 

As you might imagine, all things "sport" are well-represented in Rossland, from soft shell jackets to keep the elements off your hide to new forks for your bike to a new putter made of rare earth elements. But the domestic romantic will find no shortage of wares in our shops, either, from gourmet kitchen supplies to overlooked antiques to cozy outfits destined to become borderline uniforms you like 'em so much. (Best part? Nobody back home will show up to your next book group wearing the exact same thing.)
