RED Mountain Resort’s newest opportunity a ‘game changer for alpine real estate’
RED Mountain Resort in Rossland, B.C.—Western Canada’s first alpine resort—has a new property “turning ski-in/ski-out ownership on its head."
RED Mountain Resort in Rossland, B.C. — Western Canada’s first alpine resort — has a new property “turning ski-in/ski-out ownership on its head,” says its release. The Crescent, a chairlift-adjacent condominium development created by RED, will launch sales this season with prices starting mid $300K CAN/ under $300K USD.
“Fiercely independent,” RED is one of the largest independently-owned mountain resorts in North America. Property rankings include Top 10 Skiable Acres in North America, 8th Best Place in the World to Visit (New York Times), Most Underrated Ski Resort (Skiing Magazine) and just voted #1 Ski Town in Canada for the second consecutive year (USA Today). RED Mountain, boasting five peaks and 3,850 skiable acres, remains a relaxed, low-key destination that aims to maintain its community vibe while “quietly providing some of the best powder and big-mountain riding in the world.”
Recent additions to RED include a design-driven hostel in 2018, a 4‑star ski-in/ski-out boutique hotel in 2019, and their 1,000-acre Grey Mountain expansion. The Crescent at RED is designed for alpine enthusiasts eager to own a property in a place that feels “all theirs” already.
120 steps to the main chairlift, The Crescent offers 102 studios, one-bedrooms and lofts in total, inspired by Scandinavian-style urban living spaces and updated for modern mountain living. Smart spaces transform from day to night for easy, turnkey ownership, with buyer-friendly additions like custom built-ins, keyless entry, and private gear storage. Communal spaces include a fitness room, café/market, and co-work, with shared spaces that encourage Rossland’s famously friendly camaraderie, including a social lounge and a rooftop terrace with barbeques.
“With our recent terrain expansions, RED is now the 9th largest mountain resort in North America. We have the most interesting and rugged terrain our adventure families love and the pristine groomers for old-timers and beginners. Our lift-lines are tame, and our wildlife is wild. We have that famous Kootenay snowfall, the friendliest people on earth, and now we have The Crescent, for locals and for aspiring locals,” comments Howard Katkov, Chairman and CEO of Red Mountain Ventures.
