The winter the snow didn't stop! (And we didn't mind a bit…)

Images by Vincent Schnabl

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!

Clearing the car was been a full time job for some residents. 


Our famous “welcome” bears were under a blanket of snow almost continuously from December!

Signs were buried behind giant snowbanks.


The start of another big winter storm. The streets get real quiet around here on evenings like this- every one is preparing for powder turns early in the morning!


Essentials like post boxes and fire hydrants needed to be dug out of the snow (sometimes a few times a week!)
