"Back country skiing with the ease of the Resort" Revelstoke by DSwede

Revelstoke Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 81 photos

Revelstoke's ski area is relatively new, having been opened in 2007. Until then, the local skiing was limited to those who had the means to afford helicopter and cat-skiing trips.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is a fantastic hill for the advanced skier. There are countless bowls and trees, making it a back country skiers dream with the convenience of having chair lifts.

The town of Revelstoke started as railroad town, supporting the Canadian Railway, but now is equally important to the outdoor/nature tourism.
