Red Mountain Resort has announced that it is adding nearly 1,000 acres in-bound terrain for the 2012/13 season, making it the largest ski resort expansion that North America has seen in many years. Located on the "Powder Highway" in British Columbia, Red Mountain Resort is a hidden jewel for skiers and is already quite large. Chris Cushing, Principal at Snow Engineering (SE) Group, one of the ski resort industry’s premier design and engineering firms, said: “RED Mountain’s expansion to Grey Mountain is the biggest, most exciting project in North America this year, and SE Group is proud to have worked with RED to make it happen. Not only does the expansion increase RED’s skiable terrain by about 1,000 acres, it also adds wide terrain variety—from groomed cruising runs to tree glades and alpine chutes—that will create a whole new world for RED skiers. This project is one of the most dramatic transformations of an existing major ski area that we’ve seen and it is one of the largest—if not THE largest—single-season ski area expansion projects in North America in several decades."
