Rossland’s rich history precedes the gold rush. The Sinixt People first inhabited the land where Rossland now sits. Rossland was known to the Sinixt First Nation as kmarkn, meaning ‘up in the hills.’
The discovery of gold in the area in 1890 led to the development of Le Roi Mine and later Rossland, one of the largest towns in western Canada (at the time). Miners from across the world made their way to Rossland, including Scandinavians, responsible for founding the original Rossland Ski Club. The Club hosted Canada’s first recorded ski competitions.
After the mines closed in the 1940s, the City of Rossland was forced to find other industries to fuel the economy. Today, Rossland’s roughly 3,560 residents rely on various sectors, including tourism, healthcare, and mining (Tech Mining and Smelter), to power their economy. Seasonal workers are typical during the winter as they work and play on the gorgeous slopes.
