Rossland - Canada's Alpine City

RosslandThis cozy community tucked into the mountains and trees of the Monashee Mountain Range is literally surrounded by world-class recreation. Home of Olympic skiers Nancy Greene Raine and Kerrin Lee-Gartner.

In winter, Red Mountain's steep slopes and deep snow thrill powderhounds from around the world. The nordic trails are also in great demand. In summer, mountain bikers and hikers enjoy over one hundred kilometers of trails radiating from the city center. Rossland has hosted both the North American and Canadian Mountain Bike Championships.

Self-guided walking tour takes visitors past many fine heritage buildings. There's also an underground gold mine tour, two museums displaying the details of one of the world's richest gold strikes, and a light opera production based on Rossland's colourful history.

Downtown visitors can browse the local galleries, artist studios, shops & boutiques.
