Lift, Cat, Heli & Backcountry Skiing Pete Burnett, Overseas Operations Manager

"Revelstoke is all about the powder. If you're looking for something a bit out-of-the-ordinary with super technical terrain the 'Revey' should definitely be high on your list. For me it’s the best kept secret in North America, it has the longest vertical in North America and one of the best powder records of all Canadian resorts."

Revelstoke Ski Holidays

Bursting onto the North American scene and named Best Canadian Ski Resort at the 2016 World Ski Awards, Revelstoke Mountain Resort boasts the most vertical of any of the North American resorts at 5,620 feet; it offers varied alpine terrain and a quaint mountain community.

Revelstoke is the only resort worldwide to offer lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing from one village base. When completed, this vast area is set to be one of the largest in North America, and is home to some challenging terrain which is sure to leave you feeling inspired. For now the resort features 2 high-speed quad chairs and an eight passenger gondola – which service the 3000+ acres of fall line skiing, groomed runs, high alpine bowls, and 15 areas of gladed terrain – all shared by very few other skiers and boarders!

Revelstoke snowschool provides high quality, educational and enjoyable programs for children, teens and adults of all ability levels, and meanwhile perfect for family fun is the Turtle Peak beginners area and tube park which opened for the first time in January 2012.
