Famous for skiing at Red Mountain in the winter, and mountain biking in the summer, Rossland is a picturesque mountain town in the Monashee Mountain Range - west of the Rocky Mountains and east of the Coast Mountains.
Rossland is perhaps most famous as the hometown of Olympic champion skier, Nancy Greene.
During the winter, skiing is the major attraction to the area. Red Mountain is a famously challenging ski resort, located just outisde of town.
Like many ski resorts in British Columbia, Rossland turns into a mountain biking mecca during the summer. It is the home to many single track trails, including the Seven Summits Trail - considered one of the limited number of 'epic' trails worldwide by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).
Rossland is hot and dry during the summer, cold with lots of snow during the winter. Warm, summer days can be in the low 30 °Cs (record high is 35 °C) and cold winter nights can be around -20 °C (record low is -33 °C).
