There was 13cm of fresh snow on opening morning. The first gondola crew had been there since 8:30pm last night, camping out on the cold snow just to earn the bragging rights! The excitement in the crowd was contagious and smiles were widespread. We even had a group who were handing out free hot chocolate and homemade brownies to the eager skiers and riders waiting at the Revelation Gondola. With incredible early season snowfall, the word is out that Revelstoke Mountain Resort offers incredible terrain and conditions, especially with the return of La Niña.
The natural high we've all received from this awesome Sneak Peek opening will definitely carry us forward to official resort opening on Saturday December 3, 2011.
Located in British Columbia, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is Canada's Newest Ski Resort with the Most Vertical in North America - 5620ft.
Renowned for powder snow and incredible terrain, Revelstoke Mountain Resort features 3,121 acres of fall-line runs, wide-open bowls, a variety of glades, flowing groomed trails, and a brand new village-based beginner area and tube park.
It offers direct access to lift, cat, and heli skiing (Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing) - the only resort in the world to offer all three uplift options in one location. There's also a skiing history of over 100 years and an authentic ski-town atmosphere just minutes away in downtown Revelstoke.
