elcome to the 2012 Rossland Vacation Guide! We hope it will help you make the most of your Rossland experience. Rossland’s confluence of culture, adventure and lifestyle make it a truly special place to visit and an idyllic place to reside. For those who are here to take advantage of our four seasons of unbridled play, the Rossland Range will never disappoint. And our charming downtown core will delight with heritage buildings, boutique shops, spas and restaurants. For a more cultured experience, there is plenty of art by local artisans and live music to fill your soul. For history buffs, Rossland boasts a rich mining history full of colourful characters and tales of boom and bust. Incorporated in 1897, Canada’s Alpine City is nestled in a crater of an ancient volcano at an elevation of 1023m (3410 ft). The town came into existence when the historical Dewdney Trail was built next to what is now Rossland, bringing prospectors in search of gold. Rossland’s vivid past is a direct reflection of the cast of char-

Rossland circa 1897.

acters who came to mine its resources as early as 1890. By 1897, Rossland was the third largest city in B.C. The population was a bustling 7,000, with 42 saloons, four banks and 17 law firms. There were also four newspapers and a daily train from Spokane, Washington. By 1929, the combined output of the main mines in Rossland totaled almost $165 million, earning Rossland the name, the “Golden City.” Enthusiasm for the sport of skiing began with a young Norwegian named Olaus Jeldness who moved to town in 1896. Within two years he had organized a ski club and Rossland was ready to hold Canada’s first national ski championships, an event Olaus would dominate for years — his jumping skill second to none. Old stories are told of Jeldness jumping a train for an audience in front of the station. Since those early days, Red Mountain has been known as a premier ski destination. Visit the Rossland Museum for the complete story on the area, or pick up a copy of the Historical Heritage Walking Tour brochure, available at the Rossland Chamber of Commerce and the Museum.

Rossland Fun Fact: > Rossland was incorporated in 1897. Founder Ross Thompson wanted it to be called Thompson but there was already a Thompson in BC.

The group’s wardrobe and prop collection is in itself a glimpse into the history of Rossland’s dramatic past. Located on Columbia Avenue in the heart of town in the historical Bank of Montreal building, the The Golf Fever Follies performs throughout Rouge Gallery gives local the summer months. artists a place to showcase their exceptional talents. Every July and August for the past 25 years, the Gold Fever Follies put on a different show at the Rossland Miners Hall, which houses this lively young professional troupe. Each show is loosely based on the historic events and people of early gold rush days. The musical play delights with vivacious music, comedy and historical burlesque. It is a nostalgic experience not to be missed!

Rossland Fun Fact: > Many of the characters in the Gold Fever Follies are based on real people from Rossland’s past, such as Judge Begbie, Father Pat, Olaus Jeldness, Mrs. Allan, Big John Kirkup and a whole host of others.

BAD

VISIBILITY

RED Mountain Resort is officially certified as a definitively “bad” resort, as voted by the Association of So Good it’s Bad Winter Resorts of North America. Documentation of said “suckiness”, or “too-much-pow-I-can’t-see #@$%!”, which singularly or collectively result in Recognizable Badness, as underlined in Charter 250 of the Unified Code of Shred, whereby terrain, conditions and overall vibe are so overwhelmingly “bad” (like, you quit your job bad), that they’re actually “good” (like, holy cow this is insane good), can be found at redresort.com/SGIB.

SUCK CERTIFIED


U

nreal, dude!” I screamed to my ski buddy at the top of my lungs, doing my best not to inhale champagnelight Kootenay powder. I had an epiphany that day in 1998 on Mt. Roberts, during our annual road trip. Words cannot describe the feeling I had after four days of non-stop storm snow, piling up knee-high, chest-deep, face-shot. Downright gasping for air — well, yes, it was as they say around these parts — “snorkel” deep, or is that “stupid” deep! On that fateful day, I fell immediately in love with Red Mountain, its amazing sidecountry, and of course Rossland and its beautiful people. Red is such a kick-ass ski resort as it’s great for any skiing ability, but let me indulge you in a few of my favourite features. Hitting your face, over your head, comparable to flying

through clouds — it can be downright spiritual. This feeling is what I yearn for and Red Mountain delivers, time and time again. Explore some of my favourite runs at Red, like Powder Fields, War Eagle, the Slides, Ruby Tuesday and my new favourite, Captain Jack’s Trees! Some of the terrain is, simply put, the most challenging anywhere. Steep chutes, vertical faces, perfectly spaced trees, cliffs, rollovers, tree hits, road gaps, frozen ice falls, snow ghosts — you name it, Red has it all. For those interested in a bit less intense ride, Red offers a great variety of beginner and intermediate terrain that can be accessed from the four lifts situated on the hill — Red chair, Motherlode chair, Silverlode chair and Paradise chair. For first-timers and tots, Red also offers a Magic Carpet and a T-Bar that whisks you up very gentle terrain for a great learning experience. Why not sign up for a ski or snowboard lesson at Red while you’re at it? You’ll get a new Kootenay outlook on life. ➤

Rossland Fun Facts: > The first World Cup Ski Race was held in Canada in 1968, at Red Mountain. > The first chairlift in Canada west of Quebec (Mont Tremblant the only other) was built in 1947 at Red Mountain. ➤ > Olympic Gold Medalists Nancy Greene and Kerrin Lee Gartner both grew up skiing the slopes of Red.

For sidecountry enthusiasts, Mt. Roberts is one of four easily accessed sidecountry peaks that Red Mountain has to offer. Record Peak, Mt. Grey and Mt. Kirkup complete the line-up as a backcountry rider’s paradise. All who head out beyond boundaries must be trained in avalanche safety and first aid, or should hire a certified guide who will ensure a safe, positive outdoor experience. Red Mountain offers avalanche safety courses and guides to all our visitors. Before you go out, definitely check avalanche and snow pack conditions at www. avalanche.ca. For those who would like to read about some of the backcountry options around the Rossland Range, pick up the West Kootenay Backcountry Guide by Brad Steele, available in most outdoor equipment stores. Cat skiing and cat boarding with Big Red Cats and Valhalla Powdercats is an excellent way to satisfy your need for fresh powder. Both offer qualified guides showing you all the best untracked gladed trees and bowls — all yours for the taking! The folks that make up this colourful mountain community are unlike anywhere in the world. As you make your way up the chairlift, please don’t be alarmed if you suddenly get assaulted by kindness from complete strangers who will proudly show off their mountain and their favourite powder stashes... well, maybe not all their secrets, but enough to make you feel like a Red Mountain lifer. — Harry Allard

ith four superb cross-country trail networks less than an hour’s drive apart, Rossland is a true cross-country ski destination! And the locals agree: between the Black Jack Ski Club, the Castlegar Nordic Ski Club, the Beaver Valley Ski Club, and the Nelson Nordic Ski Club, there are over 2,000 club members. To Biathlon Range With a regional population of only about 30,000, that’s some cross-country skiing enthusiasm! Thanks to abundant snowfall and high elevations, the season starts early and ends late. Dedicated Nordic stores with full-service sales and rentals will get you equipped and ready to hit the trails. And if needed, local instructors are happy to teach you the ropes.   On the trails you’ll find beautiful alpine views, open meadows, enchanting forests, cozy cabins, a Nordic terrain park for kids, a biathlon range, lit night skiing... and fun. Cross-country skiing is consistently ranked as the world’s best fitness activity, due to its total-body yet low-impact + nature. And it’s a great way to get outdoors in the winter and get fresh air. It’s also one of the most inexpensive sports out there: a day pass is anywhere from $5 to $15. Skiing is believing! — Wannes Luppens

Rossland Fun Fact: > An easy, wide, hard-packed 5km loop trail gently meanders around Nancy Greene lake. The trail follows the shoreline, offers lake views and will lead you through a marsh area as well as a mixed forest of pine, spruce, fir and larch.

ariety is the spice of life, so the saying goes, and when it comes to mountain biking in the Rossland area, it’s downright zesty. Rossland has an extensive trail network that spans some 170 kilometres and offers an array of enticing options. Before you go, pick up a Kootenay Columbia Trail Society (www.kcts.ca) trail map at Revolution Cycles or Tourism Rossland and don’t forget to ask about new trail development. Shuttle drops are available — be sure to stop into Revolution Cycles to enquire. Ready to roll? Here are my quick picks to keep your Rossland cycling adventure sizzling:

Whole Enchilada 7 Summits: Let me give you seven words why this 30km “IMBA Epic” trail is world-renowned: challenging, technical, exhausting, exhilarating and jaw-dropping beautiful. It is all that. But don’t forget — this is a sustained, remote alpine trail for advanced riders, so be prepared with the proper clothes, food, water and bike.

For those new to mountain biking or just looking to cruise, a first pick would be Centennial (2.7 km), offering a gentle, wide trail from the City of Rossland to the base of Red Mountain Resort. Connecting to the Centennial trail, Moe’s offers a beginner to intermediate fray into flowing single-track. Other milder options include the Railgrade and slightly more challenging Kootenay Columbia. ➤

Two Chilies, Please There is an abundance of quality intermediate trails in Rossland. To spice it up, my nearby favourites include Milky Way, Green Door and Cemetery. Linked by Roger’s and starting near the old Mining School location, these trails can be ridden in any combination (up and down) for an afternoon feast. For some fresh flow, a new network is being developed at the far end of the Blackjack Cross Country Ski Area off Highway 3B. Don’t miss the new Larch Ridge trail and the descents on BS and Monticola . It can be done as a loop if you ride up the forestry road after COG to the highway.

Fire in the Hole!

MAIN FINAL modifies

If you’re a seasoned rider looking for a challenge, Rossland won’t disappoint. There’s too much goodness to list, but here are a couple of my favourites: For a challenging all-mountain rip, try climbing the new Red Top up Red Mountain, and veering onto Redhead on the descent. Another great pedal is across Drakes and Doukhobor Draw then up Tamarack to the classic Whiskey descent. – Ryan Kuhn

Glorious Golf Don’t forget your camera, Redstone is famous for postcard viewscapes on every tee box. Another option just 10 minutes away from Redstone is the Rossland Trail Country Club at Birchbank. Located above the Columbia River, golfers will appreciate its classic serenity and expansive, walkable fairways. Keep an eye out for mountain goats on the rock bluff across the river. There are many other beautiful courses scattered throughout the region, stretching from Grand Forks and Christina Lake in the west, through to Castlegar and to Nelson and Balfour in the east. It is simply a golfer’s paradise! For an alternative to golf, try frisbee golf, or “Frolf.” The skillfully cut, 18-hole disc golf course located at the Black Jack Cross Country Ski Club has superb views of Red Mountain and the Rossland Range.

Rossland Fun Fact: > The Cominco Metals Company built the original nine hole course at Redstone in 1927 and also built the original clubhouse, which is still in use today.

ong known for its world-class winter recreation, Rossland and area is quickly becoming a golf destination. Located within the City of Rossland, Redstone is only a four-minute drive from main street Columbia Ave. Secluded in a rich, tree-filled valley, Redstone has its share of elevation changes, streams, ravines, deep bunkers and other hazards to navigate. Give these a wide berth and a good score is possible, however a big score is possible if you try to bite off more than you can chew. The greens at Redstone are large and not overly contoured. Pay special attention to all angles while on the green — new visitors frequently see the wrong break when reading a putt.
