Revelstoke Mountain Resort winter adventure awaits!
Revelstoke Mountain Resort winter skiing and snowboard adventures are the stuff dreams are made of. Visit in the winter to experience the world-renowned powder snow and incredible terrain, and we guarantee you’ll be smiling so hard your face hurts.
There’s a reason why people from all over the world come skiing and snowboarding at Revelstoke Mountain Resort – they proudly holds the most vertical elevation in North America at 1,713 metres (5,620 feet). There’s 3,121 acres of skiing terrain: everything from wide-open alpine bowls, glades for days, long and flowy groomers (try out Snow Rodeo, consistently ranked one of the world’s best!), a terrain park, a new beginner area at the base and the Turtle Creek Tube Park for kids of all ages. Customize a Revelstoke Mountain Resort winter trip with lift, cat, or heli skiing, all from one village base.
Easy: Start your day at the Turtle Creek Beginner Area or The Little Bit. After mastering your turns, the lower runs from Revelation Lodge are great for skill progression. The easiest runs down are Tickle Trunk and the Last Spike, both of which are wide with gentle gradients. The next challenge lies at the top of the Revelation Gondola towards last spike. Once you’ve mastered that, take the Stoke Chair and try our newest green run from the top! A new kid-focused fun-trail will excite the little ones as they make their way through the trees beside the terrain park. At the base area, give the new Turtle Creek Bungee Bounce a try or enjoy the tube park. Kids will also enjoy Kids ROC, which features fun play structures, crafts, and a variety of games that are geared towards ages 6-12. Kids’ lessons are available for skiers & snowboarders up to age of 12, with both half and full day options available.
Intermediate: With 46% blue runs, Revelstoke is an intermediate skier’s playground! A lesson with a pro will get you started off on the right foot and will help you to find your way around 3,121 acres of terrain. Stop for lunch at the Mackenzie Outpost and enjoy a Bruce Burger or warm bowl of chili on the patio. Spend the afternoon practicing your good habits. The top pitches of Snow
Rodeo, Feller Buncher, and Wooley Bully are wide and include some fun rollers to improve your speed control. If at any point the run becomes too steep you can cut back to the Last Spike, which weaves its way down the entire mountain. Try the classic top-to-bottom, any way you choose! Once the burn in your legs just won’t quit, you’ll have earned your après at the Mackenzie Common Tavern. Make sure to try the signature ugly sweater cocktail.
Difficult: RMR has a reputation for attracting those seeking the steep and deep. With stunning glades, gnarly chutes, endless powder, and 47% black+ terrain, there is a reason why pros come back each year (or live here). On a powder day, head to North Bowl as soon as the area opens. You might spot some locals heading into “3 Bears.” You won’t find it on a trail map so you need a guide or friendly local to get to the best terrain. Continue on to test your stamina with a Greely Bowl lap. Hike up to the sub peak, enjoy the views, and head down the back through Powder Assault; take a swift right and pop out into Greely Bowl. Continue through Beauty Glades, and end at the Ripper Chair for some respite. In the afternoon, work on your goggle tan with sunshine laps in the 14- acre terrain park; over 20 new and improved jib features under the Stoke Chair.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort – Locals Tip
On a powder day, locals and visitors are known to start lining up early. Be the first to load the lifts for untouched powder or perfect corduroy (plus breakfast at the Rockford!) with Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s First Tracks program. Load the lower gondola at 7:45, a full 45 minutes before anyone else.
Another hot tip is to hire an inbounds guide! They will take you to the goods right off the bat and save you hours of searching time! It’s a big mountain, let them show your around.
