Jan 21, 2022: “Snowboarded one day here in January 2022.
I think it had snowed here at least 80 cm in the last 7 days. The powder was DEEP. So I decided to knock one off my bucket list and rode Kill the Banker...arguably one of the most difficult runs in North America.
The lift lines here were massive for a Monday...not overly surprising given the conditions, but I hope there are future plans to open more terrain. With only the Ripper and Stoke chairs (and to a lesser extent, Stellar) the lifts pack up pretty quick.
Be forewarned...being on the edge of the Pacific time zone, it gets dark here super early. The Ripper chair stops loading at 2:30 and the Stoke chair stops loading at 3:00. So, don't get caught having a late lunch; your day is over super quick.
I can't wait for my next visit...once a year just isn't enough.” 0
Jan 14, 2022: “I have been to several resorts in the Western Canada region (Sunshine, Lake Louise, Panorama, Sun Peaks) and perhaps we lucked out, but our weekend at Revelstoke was the best snow I've ever skied. Almost every run had amazing soft fluffy powder and my legs have never had a workout quite like it. The best part was the spacing of the trees in the glade runs combined with the slope, it was the perfect combination for a smooth flowy ride and the snow conditions left it feeling really controlled. As well, even though it was a weekend, it was incredibly quiet and not busy, and it often felt we had the hill to ourselves which is a far cry from what I am used to. We had an amazing experience and we will definitely be back!” 1
Sep 26, 2021: “Visited the Revelstoke Mountain resort to ride the Pipe Mountain Coaster. It was exciting, fun and thrilling - so many twists and turns. It was handy that you could control your speed (go fast or slow). Just let staff know this is your first time and you might be slow going down. Then they could time when the next person goes down after you. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Ticket to the Pipe includes a unlimited ride to the lower gondola and this was good because it gave us an opportunity to look around the area. We were lucky as the weather was sunny and warm. Note - when you arrive - expect to wait to get your tickets printed out from Guest Services even if you pre-purchased. You can also purchased photos of you going down the Pipe. Highly recommended the ride to everyone!” 2
