Wow- the stories of the endless vertical are true. This place is huge and when you go top to bottom it just keeps going and going. There is no quad burner like this in the rest of N. America! Probably the best tree skiing I’ve ever seen out of 40+ areas . Huge base this year but I was there on a hard and fast day- can’t wait to go back for one of... More

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

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 every year for as long as I have legs.... 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 online are misgiving and this hill has epic runs top to mid mountain. Only... 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 of the day, but it's totally worth it. 10/10 will ride again!... 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
