It’s a big week for Canada’s RED Mountain. First they revealed the overnight cabins that guarantee you first tracks this winter, now they’ve gone and joined the Ikon Pass.

Located in Rossland, British Columbia, RED Mountain is a Canadian trailblazer and the first stop on Canada’s famous Powder Highway. With its new Topping Chair expansion, RED delivers 3,850 acres of pristine terrain, putting the mountain in the top 10 largest ski destinations and #1 for most acres per skier in North America.

Since 2013, RED has continued to open new terrain, introduced pay-per-run cat skiing, added The Josie, a new ski-in/ski-out boutique hotel, and opened a new modern hostel, Nowhere Special, at the base of the mountain.

The resort has long been known for their hilarious and quirky marketing videos including the famed RED Sucks and the fiercely independent tagline.

“As one of the first ski resorts in North America, RED Mountain defines authenticity, anchored by an emotional connection to its history, community, guests and staff,” said Howard Katkov, CEO and Chairman of RED.

“To stay sustainable and current in the ever-changing ski travel market, we are proud to become the latest Ikon Pass partner and join a list of iconic mountain destinations that share the same devotion to authenticity and character.”

Ikon Pass holders will have access to seven days at RED with no blackout dates, and Ikon Base Pass holders will have access to five days each, with select blackout dates. There is no access to RED on the Ikon Session Pass 4-Day.

With the addition of RED, Ikon Pass holders now have access 44 global destinations in USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
