Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

RED Mountain Resort BC - Crowdfunding

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Did a quick search and couldn't find any threads/posts on it...

Stumbled across a crowdfunding campaign that was launched a year ago to own a share of RED Mountain Resort BC (Unfortunately only open to US investors)

https://www.startengine.com/startup/red-mountain-resort

Interesting all the same.

Note: Admin if there is already a thread on this, please feel free to merge it also move it to another section if not suitable for The Piste.

Only open to Canadian investors at the moment (I'm pondering it...), open to US investors too sometime soon.

I'd jump at the chance myself, even if only in for $1000, although I'd try going in higher. Certainly a cool thing.

No great mileage when living in the UK. A great idea IMO and wish them all the best success with it and for anyone who buys in.

Izzop, I would too tbh. Nice to own a piece for the future, you never know where it will lead.

It isn't for me snowHead

Hopefully if I do invest, Red Mountain will invest some of that in enabling me to actually get there a bit easier in the winter! Madeye-Smiley

Red is a great ski hill and the standard of the local skiers is phenomenal. If you ever want to know for certain you're in the bottom quartile of skiers on a mountIn check it out. Then duck those trees don't take prisoners.

@stuarth, Don't think so, thought the point of the crowdfunding was to try and keep it low key and local and avoid a takeover by a big operator.............

@gryphea,
yes, certainly the latter. Though have to admit it is great that it is a bit more remote once you're there! snowHead
But it is probably easier to get to from the US than Canada. Spokane is the nearest reliable airport and there are no direct flights there from Vancouver. Driving there is non-trivial in the winter.
I saw talk again that Castlegar was looking to do something to make landing there somewhat more possible in less than optimal weather (which may be difficult without removing a couple of mountains!)
So perhaps Red Mountain could do something to encourage direct flights into Spokane?

 snowHeads are a friendly bunch.

It's a great place, did a few days there before going Cat / Heli Skiing, flew into Castlegar, didn't realise that was so flakey, Obvs really.
The ski leaders were great, retired guy, skied with me and my dad for a couple of days, he was also the key holder for the mine museum, so he took us down the mine one evening. Such a genuinely friendly scene.
Went a second time when the heli operation, conditions were unsafe, we flew in and landed in the carpark in a Bell 408, felt like a rockstar!
Great day skiing the Heli operation owners home hill.
I would love to go back.
