Red Mountain Rossland BC Canada

Our first day at Red Mountain after a smooth but long travel day on Thursday. A beautiful day! I met an 84 year old women named Renata while riding the chair. She is originally from Germany but while mountain climbing in the Colorado Rockies in 1960 met a Canadian mountain climber. They fell immediately in love and she never retruned to Germany. She is an avid skier. Her son was on the Canadian olympic team and has skied all over the world.

After skiing Maria and I drove into Rossland and had our first cappuccino and london fog of the trip at the Alpine Grind and finished with dinner at Idgies.

Rossland is a small town with a year round population of around 3500 people. Everyone is very friendly and the place is very mellow.

A great start to our Rossland adventure. Tomorrow we will be snowshoeing and heading north to Nelson, BC (the marijuana capital of Canada) in search of coffee roasters.
