Rossland is not noted for its restaurants, but what you find is very good, and at prices to suit all pockets. Sunshine Cafe has a good menu while Elmer's serves great veggie food. The Flying Shovel dishes up good pub grub. Mountain Gypsy is the spot for pizzas and pasta.
Accommodation is as you'd expect at any resort. At the slopes there is a selection of lodges, chalets and condos. Places such as the Red Mountain Cabins, a short walk from the slopes, are pricey but very good, as are the Lofts.
The best option is to stay in the town of Rossland which is only 2 miles from the slopes. The options there include cheap B&B's and a hostel, which are all close to the nighttime action. Check the web site for accommodation and the latest prices.
Nightlife in Rossland is not exactly the most happening, but it's still cool. There's a number of good nighttime hangouts where you can drink to jazz music or boogie to pop. Most bars play decent tunes and have pool tables. Try the Flying Steamshovel, the Powder Keg and Rafters.
