a powder paradise!

The winter of 2017-18 was one of the snowiest in 10 years. By March 19th, Revelstoke Mountain Resort had seen over 10.5 meters of snow and snow banks in town were over 7 feet in places!

Local photographer, Vincent Schnabl, captured these images of what life was like in downtown Revelstoke that winter. Check out his snapshots from inside the snow globe!
