  • Rossland is a city in the West Kootenay region of BC that was named by Ross Thompson who staked the first claim in 1890. Tucked high in the Monashee Mountains, Rossland is at an elevation of 1,023 metres (3,410 feet). Its population fluctuates from season to season. The population is at its peak during the winter during ski season. But back in 1897, as a result of a gold rush, Rossland for a time was one of Western Canada’s largest cities.

    A number of historic buildings survive from this time. Rossland has been known as the ‘Mountain Bike Capital of Canada’ since 1993 when it was awarded this title, with an extensive trail system radiates from the outskirts of the town. Rossland is the hometown of Nancy Greene, Olympic Gold Medalist, and John Turner, 17th Prime Minister of Canada.
