The Josie Hotel Named Among Three Global Finalists For World’s Best New Ski Hotel

Voting now open for the World Ski Awards

June 19, 2019 (Rossland, BC): The Josie Hotel – the Kootenay Rockies’ newest luxury ski-in, ski-out hotel – has been nominated as one of three global finalists for “World’s Best New Ski Hotel”, one of the most coveted categories in the prestigious World Ski Awards competition. The buzzworthy Noble House Hotels & Resort property is also nominated alongside the country’s premiere ski hotels for “Canada’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel”.

Inspired by Rossland’s rugged peaks, lush forests and 3,850 acres of unfettered skiing, The Josie beckons locals and visitors with luxe amenities, personalized service and a coveted location mere steps from RED Mountain Resort: a fellow World Ski Award nominee for “Canada’s Best Ski Resort” and one of the top 10 largest ski resorts in North America. Since opening in November 2018, the hotel – situated along the world-renowned Powder Highway – has attracted global interest among ski aficionados seeking a home-away-from-home from which to explore Rossland’s alluring mountain experiences.

The Josie is one of three hotels to be nominated in the World Ski Awards’ “World’s Best New Ski Hotel” category, and was also named among nine national nominees for “Canada’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel”. Votes are cast by professionals working within the ski industry, including senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media; as well as by ski tourism consumers.

The World Ski Awards aims to raise the bar within the ski industry by recognizing and rewarding organizations that demonstrate leadership in the field of ski tourism. Each year, hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and skiers from around the world participate by voting for their favorite products, venues and brands. The winners are revealed at the annual World Ski Awards gala, taking place this year in Kitzbühel, Austria, between November 22 and 24.

“We are blown away to be nominated as one of the world’s best new ski hotels, particularly among such stiff competition”, said Jesse Crockett, general manager of The Josie. “When we opened The Josie, one of our top priorities was to share Rossland’s story with the world, particularly since local culture is so deeply embedded in our hotel. It is extremely gratifying that the World Ski Awards has recognized not only The Josie, but also Rossland, for excellence in ski tourism.”
