Trail maps


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.

This mountain is a little far for me, but worth the drive. Lots vertical and great snow most of the ski season. I had a great time exploring the runs, but did not see everything. I will be back to finish soon. And with clear weather the view at the top is great.

I rode this resort in 2010/2011 and It was unreal. La ñina season was hitting that year and we had dry powder all season from top to bottom. Can not wait to go back. :)
