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!

Downtown was transformed, and some locals even started skiing to get around!
