Noble House Hotels & Resorts, a collection of luxury hotels and resorts, will manage the forthcoming The Josie Hotel, the first truly ski-in/ski-out hotel to open in Canada in over a decade, in partnership with William Cole Companies. The Josie Hotel is located at the base of Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, British Columbia, Canada. Positioned on the Powder Highway, Rossland is one of the biggest ski resorts in western Canada with the world’s largest cat skiing operation. The Josie Hotel is slated to open early 2018.
“Our partnership with William Cole Companies will allow us to open Red Mountain Resort’s first ever boutique hotel and to celebrate Rossland’s rich heritage,” Pat Colee, Noble House founder and chairman of the board, said in a statement. “We aim to increase tourism to this incredible destination and create a four-season gathering place for locals and visitors alike.”
The Josie Hotel is a modern, architecturally unique 106-room hotel at the base of Red Mountain Resort offering luxury accommodations, a restaurant and lounge helmed by chef Marc-Andre Choquette, indoor and outdoor dining options with fire pits, event, conference and meeting rooms, a large function deck, a fitness facility, a boutique spa overlooking the mountain and ski and activity concierge services. Guests of The Josie Hotel will have access to skiing and snowboarding, cat skiing and snowboarding, cross-country skiing, fat biking, snowshoeing, curling, ice skating and hockey. For those looking to traverse downtown, Rossland presents local breweries and dining options, as well as inspiring local arts, culture and boutique shopping.
Guestrooms and suites offer vistas of the surrounding Red Mountain range, as well as plush bedding, seating areas and bathrooms. While contemporary in nature, the hotel’s design team pulled inspiration from the City of Rossland’s legacy of 40 years in the mining industry and named the hotel after the historic Josie Mine that operated from 1890-1929. The Josie Hotel will have an emphasis on locally inspired, meaningful hospitality, a hallmark of the partnership between William Cole Companies and Noble House Hotels & Resorts.
