Welcome to the Red Shutter Inn, perfectly located in a ski-in location just one building away from the Red and Silverlode chairs at Red Mountain Resort on one side, and next to the "Big Red Cats" headquarters and the "Fresh" clubhouse on the other.
Owned by Big Red Cats, it hosts many cat skiing groups because of its convenient location to the BRC HQ and the fact that there are 12 beds, which perfectly fits a snowcat group of 12, but the inn welcomes all, all year round.
The Red Shutter Inn is the original lodging at the base of Red Mountain, and was built in the 1960's out of a load of lumber that fell off the back of a truck. While it has been updated since, it still has more of a ski club feel to it than a hotel vibe.
Each room has its own washroom with shower, a comfortable queen and double bed and heater, and free wifi, but gathering around the wood stove in the lounge room or in the huge outdoor hot tub are with the other guests are highlights of the Red Shutter experience. Cuddle with "Big Red Cat" on the couch (Big Red is a very friendly cat who lives at the lodge and is the mascot for Big Red Cats cat skiing next door - if you aren't cat-friendly, the Shutter may not be ideal) and walk to 3 nearby restaurants, or take the hourly shuttle into town right from the front door. With only 6 rooms, it is cozy, comfortable, and social. In winter, cooked breakfast is included for inn guests next door at our "Fresh" clubhouse.
Next door, the 2-bedroom A-Frame Cabin sleeps 4 and offers a basic kitchen, for those who prefer a self-catering option. One of the "best value" options at the hill, it's a great choice for groups of 4 who want inexpensive autonomy but who aren't expecting luxury. Though small and "rustic," it still offers access to the best hot tub and sauna in town, and has free wifi and comfortable beds (king-single in the main bedroom is made up as a king, but can be split, and the king-singles in the 2nd room are dressed as singles - it comfortably sleeps 4, but not 5.
