If you haven’t yet heard about Revelstoke, you will. Formerly a cat-skiing and heli-skiing zone, this new British Columbia resort receives a massive 480 to 720 inches annually. With 5,620 vertical feet, which is 300 feet more than Whistler Blackcomb, Revelstoke offers among some of North America’s longest lift-served vertical. Its longest run, Last Spike, is 9.5 miles long. Revelstoke’s more than 3,000 acres is accessed by a modern lift system consisting of an eight-person, high-speed gondola, high-speed quad chairs and magic carpet conveyor lifts. Revelstoke, or “Revy” as locals call it, features a new Resort Village at the base of the mountain around the new Nelson Lodge. It offers a full-service restaurant, retail and rental shops and lift ticket and skier services. 

This powder-blessed ski resort is located just 3.5 miles from downtown Revelstoke, a quaint railway town of 8,500 residents, with 100 years of skiing history. Downtown offers a surprisingly exceptional dining scene, with everything from modern café/bakeries to sushi. Nightlife-seekers will be pleased to find live music at a variety of homey pubs. Revelstoke also provides a great setting for winter activities like cross-country skiing, ice- skating and snowshoeing. Or, you may choose to soothe your aches and pains in the natural hot springs or the salt-water aquatic center.

Revelstoke Ski Resort

Revelstoke skiing is mainly below treeline. Advanced intermediates and experts are the best served on a Revelstoke ski vacation with many steep, long groomers, moguls, glades and unrivaled backcountry and sidecountry access. Intermediates will also find mellow cruisers. Beginners don’t have a ton of options at Revelstoke, with only seven percent designated as beginner, so it comes as little shock that this resort is most frequented by thrill-seeking skiers and snowboarders.

Thanks to its close proximity to the resort and downtown Revelstoke, it’s also among the world’s most convenient and affordable places to base your cat-skiing or heli-skiing trip out of. Heli-skiing in Revelstoke provides virtually unlimited terrain.
