Red Mountain Resort in British Columbia Joins Mountain Sports Club Discount Program for Winter 2016.17

The team at Mountain Sports Club is pleased to welcome Red Mountain Resort in British Columbia, Canada as the newest resort partner for our growing discount lift ticket promotions for Winter 2016.17. This classic resort is one of our staff favorites. The mountain has big mountain feel with over 3,000 sustained vertical fall lines and some of the best tree skiing anywhere.

A trip to Red Mountain should be on the bucket list of any serious skier/rider and powder hound. Abundant cold Kootenay smoke delivers dry powder days for the locals and visitors on a regular basis. Mountain Sports Club members will save $15C off a daily full day lift ticket all season.

Red Mountain Resort also recently started an online funding program where you can own part of the resort. Using non traditional ways to raise capital and fund infrastructure. Now you can own part of the mountain with their campaign " Fight the man. Own the mountain."

This will be Waterville Valley Resort’s biggest expansion project in more than 30 years. Jack Sanders, a longtime skier at Waterville Valley and attorney for the Resort said “I congratulate Chris Sununu, his leadership team and the management of Waterville Valley Holdings on launching the first expansion of the ski area.

Chris Sununu is President of the ownership group which is the fourth company to own Waterville Valley, but the first to expand the ski area.” Sanders continued, “I have been skiing in Waterville Valley since Tom Corcoran developed it as a first class ski area and now with new leadership, the updated master plan is on the road to being fulfilled. What is amazing is to see a ski area in New England invest on the heels of the winter we experienced with so little snow.” View Press Release
