About

The Gathering is a celebration of mountain culture. Photographers, filmers and athletes from around the world descend on RED Mountain Resort and Rossland, B.C. to tell stories of their journeys in an interactive media presentation.

For the 5th year running, The Gathering, presented by Salomon, will continue to thrill and inspire skiers of all kinds.

The Gathering runs from March 25th – March 31st, culminating with photographic, film and athlete presentations at the local auditorium on March 29th and 30th.

Stick around on Sunday, March 31st to enjoy the annual Slush Cup and Deck Party – this year, the Aggrolites (a ska band from LA) will be getting the party going.

A fun filled week of skiing, parties and friends.
