Rossland, B.C. Feb. 27, 2007 (Press Release)—As if world-class tree skiing and wide-open glades of untouched powder aren't enough, the deal just got a little sweeter for ski and outdoor enthusiasts interested in purchasing real estate at Rossland, BC's renowned Red Mountain Resort. The premiere resort destination, recognized by Forbes Traveler as one of the continent's top 10 ski destinations, today announced it will be offering free lifetime ski passes to buyers who purchase one of the 48 alpine resort homes being released on March 3rd, 2007 at the latest developments, Slalom Creek and Morning Star.
"We've had such a great response to our 'Ski Free at Red For a Day' promotion that we felt like this would be the perfect opportunity to take it to a much larger scale, says Jim Greene, VP of Operations for Red Mountain Resort, "Most buyers are interested in purchasing real estate here because they want to enjoy the 'real' ski culture of Red. It's world class skiing at your doorstep, without the attitude. A free lifetime ski pass is icing on the cake for the avid skiers and outdoor lovers who are drawn to the old-world charm of Rossland and the superb quality of our snow and terrain.
The 34 remaining suites at Slalom Creek and the 14 remaining suites at Morning Star have ski-in, ski-out access to Red Mountain Resort's 87 runs and 1,585 acres of skiable terrain. The steel and concrete constructed buildings have secure underground parking, generous balconies with hot tubs and barbeques, and interior finishings like wine fridges, steam showers, and luxurious alder hardwood flooring. Add to that a 4,200 acre backyard of total future ski terrain to explore and you have an excellent investment opportunity or the perfect family getaway.
"There is no better value in North America for a ski-in, ski-out mountain home than Slalom Creek and Morning Star at Red Mountain Resort, says Howard Katkov, President and CEO of Red Mountain Ventures, "We offer spacious mountainside homes with incredible views and all the amenities of a world class ski resort at 50 to 200% less per square foot than similar properties at other resort destinations. The offer of two lifetime ski passes for individuals who purchase a home by March 3rd, 2007 adds that extra touch to our already strong value proposition.
Buyers can move into one of the large designer homes at Slalom Creek this fall, which features granite countertops and gas fireplaces as well as a private lounge with exercise room, cinema room, multiple game venues, and ski lockers. Morning Star's sleek stainless steel appliances, heated oversized slate floors, and cultured stone fireplace with timber mantle make it the perfect spot for an impromptu gathering after an exhilarating day on the slopes.
