Rossland has charm, history and an active arts community making this growing community an ideal place to live, work and play.  It is found high in the Monashee Mountain Range, nestled in the crater of an ancient volcano.  

Recreation and culture

Known as Canada’s Mountain Biking Capital, Rossland is teeming with adventure for every skill level.  Five provincial parks and beautiful alpine lakes surround the area - Christina Lake has some of the warmest waters in the country.

Set among the towering mountain ranges, shimmering lakes and pristine valleys of the south eastern corner of British Columbia lies a memorable and affordable golf experience waiting to be discovered.

In winter, Rossland becomes a powder mecca for skiers at Red Mountain Resort. The annual Rossland Winter Carnival is a well-known event which celebrates the community's rich cultural diversity.
