Tourism Rossland is delighted to announce that we now have a new accurate weather station.  In previous years we have had snow reporting options which reported significantly lower altitude weather information from places like Trail or Northport  whose elevation was almost 500 meters lower than the resort base .

For a winter destination this has meant that we looked warmer than we actually were.  However Tourism Rossland in association with Red Mountain Resort has purchased and installed a new weather station.  The weather station is located at the base area day lodge.

Although the Environment Canada weather information will still show the low altitude information- everyone is welcome to use our new station instead!

Deanne Steven from Tourism Rossland commented that this has been an ongoing challenge in Rossland for years- so we decided to be proactive and solve it ourselves!

Nicole Briggs, Marketing Manager from Red Mountain said that “This is key for our guests to determine our actual weather and plan their vacations accordingly”

In the next few months we will be launching a widget which will allow stakeholders to embed both weather (temperature and wind) as well as snow conditions in their website.  In the interim- stakeholders are invited to use a “sticker” for embedding.

Additionally, if you download the Wunderground App you can check the Rossland weather from your iphone or Android!

Tourism Rossland is Rossland’s Destination Marketing Organisation whose mission is to work in a fair and unbiased manner to grow Rossland’s year round tourism economy within the context of the community’s vision and values.
