Full review

The reputation of Revelstoke is SNOW SNOW SNOW. However, I didn't experience this. I was looking forward to a week of glorious face shots and was met with well groomed runs. Even when we trekked into the back bowls (which are nice) and beyond, we had a hard time finding much of the deep stuff. I should note that Revelstoke was in the same boat as everyone else that year as there was not much snow anywhere (I went to Louise on the same trip and although there were massive bare spots I still managed to find some soft stuff). Revelstoke has HUGE vertical but I'm not likely to use much more than the top third of it anyway as the bottom got mushy and bare (yes this was in February).
