FOOD & BEVERAGE MEET CHEF MARC-ANDRÉ CHOQUETTE: Chef Marc-André Choquette (MAC) displays a palate for locally-foraged, seasonal ingredients, with balanced flavor and texture combinations-leading the way to create uniquely inspired dishes. Choquette studied at the Institut de Tourisme et d’Hôtellerie du Quebec and apprenticed at Richard Bastien’s renowned Le Mitoyen restaurant. He honed his training in classical French cuisine at the Michelin-starred Restaurant Gill in Normandy, France. Chef MAC’s repertoire includes leading the show and satisfying palates around the globe - Australia’s Tetsuya’s, Vancouver’s Lumiere Restaurant, and the Loden Hotel, just to name a few. Not to mention being an integral part of Rob Feenie’s win on The Food Network’s Iron Chef America against Iron Chef Morimotto with crab as the theme ingredient. Chef Marc-André creates classic French-inspired cuisine, using locally-sourced products from suppliers that share a healthy respect for the West Kootenay terroir.

ACTIVITIES & CONCIERGE DUST YOUR BOOTS OFF; YOU’LL NEED ‘EM You’re in for a serious good time They come here from paved cities to get their shiny new mountain bikes dirty, once and for all. They come here to put their brand new set of skis to the test amongst the BEST tree runs in BC. They come here to hike through alpine wildflowers and dunk their heads under a cold creek’s waterfall. Some of them come here to do nothing at all, surrounded by Canadian nature at its finest. With winter bringing 300” of powder, epic vertical, and the 360-degree tree skiing, it’s no wonder “The New York Times” voted RED and Rossland the “#8 Best Place in the World to Visit in 2013”. Spring, summer and fall serves up world-class mountain biking, hiking, and golfing. The sidewalk coffee scene hums and people gather and fuel up for one kind of fun or another. Our team is looking forward to putting together a customized itinerary for you and your guests, complete with the very best of Rossland. Services also include transportation arrangements, dining reservations, spa appointments, and all of your area activity planning.
