Administrative history

In 1947 the Trail and Rossland ski clubs amalgamated and became the Red Mountain Ski Club. Chuck Sankey was the first president. They built the first chair lift on Red Mountain in the same year, which was the record chairlift in all of Western Canada. The wooden tower lift would run until 1973, when it was replaced by a steel tower Mueller lift. At the base of Red Mountain, they built a lodge in the autumn of 1947. Nancy Greene, a two-time winner of the World Cup (1967 and 1968) and Olympic champion (1968), was a member of the club. The club hosted the World Cup in 1968, which was the first time a World Cup was held in Canada. Nancy Greene won the Giant Slalom. In 1965, the Granite Mountain Lift was built in Paradise Basin, on the west side of Granite Mountain. The RMSC again hosted a World Cup even in 1988. In 1989 ownership of RMSC and all its facilities were bought by Eric Skat-Peterson. In 2004 it was sold again, this time to Howard Katkov.
