By Air via Castlegar, BC.
Winter Weather Warning.
Castlegar airport is very convenient.
But "Cancelgar" airport occasionally deserves its nickname ( usually in big December and January blizzards), so insure your return connections.

(But, how to convince the folks back home you were sorry to get stuck with another powder day?)

Incoming flights that expect difficult weather here will land in Penticton. Passengers rent cars together for the 4 hour drive. The highway's well maintained and very easy to navigate. Sometimes new friendships can make up for the longer journey. Sometimes.
International flights to Vancouver, BC, and to Calgary, Alberta, have daily connections to our local airport Castlegar.

From Castlegar Airport to Rossland
(Ask if you need collecting. I could usually arrange a ride.)

1) Rent a car.
You probably won't need a 4 wheel drive if they supply good snows on a front wheel drive.

It's only a 35 minute drive to Rossland, via Trail.
Shortcut: 20 minutes from airport, turn right after you pass the traffic lights at Cominco ( the world's largest lead-zinc smelter). Rossland is signed. (Or, if slushy, turn right a mile further on, in Trail.) Then, 12 minutes later, when Hwy 3B narrows, turn left onto Thompson Ave. After 5 blocks, turn left on Spokane St and you've arrived.

2) Take a taxi.

Book ahead if you can. Castlegar Taxi (250) 368 8400 or
1 877 202 9922.  Costs about $55 to Rossland.
 
By Air via Spokane, Wa., USA.


This reliable airport is an easy 3 hour drive south of Rossland.


For info:  www.spokaneairports.net/airline.htm
Their site will connect you to airlines and car rentals.
From Spokane Airport: Rent a Car.
There is no bus from Spokane this year, but that may change.
 Shortcut: About a mile north of Colville turn right on the Williams Lake road to Northport. This cuts off a dog-leg through Kettle Falls. (If the roads are slushy, go via Kettle Falls, but be sure to turn right there on Hwy 25 to Northport. Scenic drive.)

The Border.  After Northport cross the Columbia River and then cross into Canada at the Paterson Border. The border is pretty reasonable usually. Check with Canada Customs before if you want.  www.ccra-adrc.gc.ca  We don't welcome guns up here. US alcohol is cheaper, but Canadian beer is better, eh?
Border Hours.  Open 24 hours coming north. Going south they open at 6am weekdays, 8am weekends. Close at 9 pm. Bear this in mind for catching your return flight.
