Red Mountain and Rossland

  • 5

We're doing an early season ski trip to Revelstoke and Red Mountain in a couple of weeks. Have some good ideas for Revelstoke, but not much info on Rossland for the Red Mountain leg of the trip. Anyone have any good chow suggetions? We're staying up at the mountain where I don't think there's much to eat but will have a car to get into town or into the area. Thanks for any help!

  1. Nope, my only recommendation is to stick to skiing at Red, great mountain!

    If you need lots of carbs, the poutine at the cafeteria there is quite large. :)

    1. There's a lovely restaurant at the mountain called Gypsy At Red. Although the prices are higher than most in the area, both the food and service are great. http://www.gypsyatred.com

        Thanks for the input. Very exciting about skiing and the early season snow seems to be settling in for us. Gypsy has been mentioned on a couple of other boards so will be sure to check it out!

          We had a great stay at Red. Our meal at Gypsy was really excellent. Prices were higher for the area but a steal for us city slickers. Excellent food, complex flavours and super friendly service. The pork medallallions were eye roll back amazing.

          We also had excellent burgers at The Flying Steamshovel downtown. A bit on the overcooked side but super tasty and hit the spot.

        2. You need to go eat at The Colander in Trail, which is about a 10 minute drive from Rossland, down the hill. It's an institution, Trail has a huge Italian- Canadian population and The Colander is known for their all you can eat spaghetti and meatballs and roast chicken.
