Revelstoke has obvious stoke factor, with the biggest vertical in North America at 5,620’, and 3,121 acres of skiing including two high alpine bowls and 65 thigh burningly long trails. Revelstoke Mountain Resort is also the only resort in the world to offer lift accessed resort skiing plus cat skiing, heli-skiing and backcountry skiing all emanating from one ski resort base. In fact, Revelstoke is the capital of heli-skiing in BC, Canada and the globe for that matter. Just off the Trans Canada Highway, Revelstoke is home to the humbling ski resort plus Revelstoke Cat Skiing and Selkirk Tangiers Heli-Skiing -giving skiers and snowboarders access to a total of 515,000 acres of diverse terrain and options in all kinds of weather from snowy white outs when helicopters can't fly or lifts can't run, but cats can. Plus there are numerous other cat ski and heli-ski outfits in Revelstoke including Eagle Pass Heli-Ski, Mica, and CMH to name a few.

Revelstoke is an amazing mountain. Long winding trails, great steeps and epic tree runs. The resort is always improving and caters more to the intermediate and advanced patrons. I've snowboarded all over the world and will continue to go back to this resort in the future.... More

Incredible resort. Most accessible backcountry right off of a lift I've ever had at a resort! It is never crowded here either. Definitely a place to check off your bucketlist! Wicked tree runs.... More

Reve has the vertical to compete with any mountain resort in BC. If you wanna ski with the family all day no problem, or if you wanna challenge yourself they have that too. Enough runs to spread people out even on the busiest of days. I will make efforts to visit this mountain... More

Revelstoke is a little gem in BC. About a 10 minute drive from the highway yo the base of the hill this mountain is amazing on big powder days. This is a very steep mountain, with minimal green runs on the lower bit, and a single cat track that green top to bottom. The maps... More

I make multiple trips to revelstoke every winter because the riding is unreal! They have a new chairlift being added for the 17/18 season to access even more of this awesome terrain. Endless amounts of powder and with a vertical drop of 5620ft your legs will be on fire by the end... More

If you are into steep and deep this place is awesome. Can almost always ski onto the lifts too. Not much in the way of beginner terrain at all though.... More

This is THE ski resort to go to if you like steep, trees, and tons of snow. The mountain vibe is that of a skier's resort - people who ride here don't care about the shopping in town; they only care about the mountain, the snow, and which line they are going to ski next.... More

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the thing of dreams for advanced skiers/snowboarders, with its seemingly endless advanced terrain and bottomless powder. 'Revy' isnt exactly the most beginner friendly mountain, which makes for a nice quiet resort and freshies that last for days... More
