Revelstoke

Revelstoke

Revelstoke - British Columbia, Canada

Snowboard, Ski

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is located on Mount MacKenzie in the southeast of British Coloumbia, Canada. Although there has been a history of skiing on the mountain since the late sixties, the resort first opened in 2007 and was extended in 2008. Some major outside parties have invested in the project and the resort is expected to continue growing.

The resort has thousands of hectares of skiable domain with state of the art lifts and excellent quality snow. It receives on average more than five metres of snowfall a year and it has the biggest vertical descent in North America. Revelstoke is a mecca for off piste skiing and has some very difficult, steep descents. There are companies that offer off piste tours with their expert guides. Of the groomed pistes, only 7% is dedicated to beginners, 42.5% are for intermediates and 47.5% are for advanced.

The beginner area is Turtle Creek which is at the base of the resort and can be accessed by the magic carpet. For the more experienced, there is the Apocalipsis Lodge which can be reached from Little Bitt. Intermediates can go to the very good Downtowner and Chopper pistes which are between the trees and can be accessed by the Ripper Chair. Advanced riders can find some very steep descents on the Powder Assault and Discipline pistes which can be accessed from the Stoke Chair. There are also plenty of tree runs in the bowls zone. The Last Spike and Kill the Banker can be accessed from the Revelation Gondola. Although there isn’t a snowpark at Revelstoke, there are some elements at the base of the resort for freestylers and there are many natural kickers alongside the pistes as well as in the bowls zone.

Conditions

The winter season starts at the end of November and ends around the beginning of April. The resort receives a lot of precipitation and is one of the top ten resorts for the best coverage but the off piste conditions are best in January and February.
