Rossland is located 10 km (6 miles) east of Trail, BC on Hwy 22 and 75 km (47 miles) west of Christina Lake on Hwy 3B.

Home of Nancy Greene Raine
Rossland is a very historic place with the discovery of gold on Red Mountain in 1890 and the next few years the Le Roi Gold Mine Operation. With Red Mountain also came another notoriety of Rossland - this is the place where Canada's famous Olympic skier, Nancy Greene Raine, came from.

Red Mountain Resort
If you like hiking, boarding and skiing, Rossland is the spot; it is a mountain paradise featuring Red Resort an area encompassing two mountains: Red and Granite. The powder snow is excellent with the terrain both challenging and quite varied. If you prefer, there is ample backcountry skiing with various mountain ranges all around.

Rossland Museum
The Rossland Museum is a must see and has to be one of the most unique in British Columbia. The reason for this is that besides excellent artifacts the museum has there is also a walking tour of the property which includes large collection of mining equipment that was once part of the historic Le Roi Gold Mine.

Mountain Biking Capital of Canada
Rossland claims that it is the mountain biking capital of Canada. Lots of trails exist for all levels of experience with one favourite following the historic Dewdney Trail. Make sure you have a look at the excellent trail map that was produced by the City of Rossland.

Bike Map
If you do decide to tackle some of the trails, make sure you purchase the bike map as well; it is well worth it and proceeds go to a great cause.

USA Border
If you want a change from the mountains don't worry - in either direction you can pick something to do. Christina Lake, Arrow Lakes, the Trans-Canada KVR Trail, and the USA border are all close.

Places to Eat and Have Beverages
Clansey's Cafe located at 2042 Columbia Ave. has always been a favourite with the locals serving a great breakfast throughout the years.

Drinking Establishments
For beverages try the drinking establishments at the Rock Cut Pub, Prestige Mountain Resort or The Flying Steamshovel.

Home Town Friendliness
Although not as big as Whistler Resort, the town of Rossland is one of those old-time ski villages with a casual atmosphere. If you like good restaurants, funky businesses and home-town friendliness, this is the place.
