The second resort we visited was Red Mountain, staying in the nearby town of Rossland. The elevation is higher than Fernie and the snow even at town level was a lot deeper, we arrived to a fresh coating of powder over the trees and houses. Unfortunately thenext morning the weather set in a rain plagued us again, though it was snow at higher elevations.
The Red Mountain Grey chair was closed so in instead they were running a free snow cat service up part of the mountain, try getting that in Europe! There was a half hour wait for the cat so various games involving digging holes in the snow developed, I dug myself a nice little snow shelter.
The house we rented didn’t have enough beds for everyone (our fault), but it did have a basement with table football and air hockey.
