Get revved up and get stoked at Revelstoke Mountain Resort! Revelstoke ski resort is continuing to transform itself with the potential to become the biggest and best resort in Canada. Revelstoke BC has long been known by cat skiers and heli skiers for the legendary Selkirk powder that falls in abundance. Realizing the potential for the perfect location where snow dumps, Revelstoke Mountain Resort developments continue to turn this powder paradise into a mega-resort.
For powder hounds, Revelstoke has the great advantage that the area offers resort skiing, cat skiing, and heli skiing (with either Selkirk Tangiers or Eagle Pass Heliskiing), so you can mix and match your powder adventure depending upon the conditions, and of course, your budget.
Revelstoke Ski Terrain:
Revy is big, big, big – big terrain, big pitch, big snowfall and big vertical. Revelstoke ski resort has 3,121 acres (1,263 hectares) of skiable terrain yet only 59 trails, which gives you an idea of the magnitude of the off-piste offerings. Revelstoke has the longest vertical in North America at 5,620 feet (350 ft. than Whistler Blackcomb), so it’s easy for the thighs to get burnt out after two runs! And the gondola and detachable quad chair lifts are super fast so there’s little rest time.
The Revelstoke skiing terrain is largely below the treeline and consists of super long steep groomers, mellow groomed runs, moguls, glades, and tree skiing. Alpine bowl skiing is available in the North Bowl and a hike-to area above The Stoke chair.
With terrain split stats of 7% beginner, 45% intermediate and 48% advanced, it’s no great surprise that lots of hot skiers and boarders hang out at Revelstoke ski resort. The main niche of the resort is for advanced riders and those who want to progress to backcountry skiing, and the terrain is OK for experts.
Revelstoke is renowned for getting lots of snow. Some of the Revelstoke heli skiing areas get a whopping 40-60 feet of powder on average per season, and the resort gets over 30 feet.
