The Best Revelstoke Lodging and Cat Skiing

According to the Telegraph Ski & Snowboard, Revelstoke is on track to be one of the top ten ski resorts in the world – on a calibre with St Anton, Zermatt, Chamonix, Whistler, Aspen and other great resorts.

We have a different opinion – we already think it is up there with the best!

Steep and deep

Currently there are 21 lifts, of which the most important is the high speed gondola that in 13 minutes whisks you from the base station to the top of the mountain and offers a whopping 1829m vertical drop.

There’s still plenty of development planned for the mountain, that will one day make it the largest ski area in North America. 

With cat skiing (when you are taken to otherwise inaccessible backcountry stashes in a tracked vehicle) and heli skiing widely available, there’s plenty of ways to access the true reason people come to Revelstoke – the massive 40 feet (12.2m) of snow that falls every winter.


Revelstoke is the place to try heli skiing.  With the massive vertical drop on offer and huge backcountry area to explore, you’ll want to try it again and again.

Coda works with Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing who can offer the experience of a lifetime.  They have options from around $800 (£480) for three drops and including all avalanche equipment, specialist ski rental, guiding and meals.

Lodging in Revelstoke

Located right at the base area for Revelstoke Mountain, the Sutton Place Hotel is perfectly located to get you up onto the ski area quickly each day and make the most out of your stay.

There are over 200 suites available ranging from their Studio Suites to the three 3-bedroom Penthouse Suites.

And when the skiing’s done, you can relax in one of their outdoor hot tubs or heated pool.  If you still have energy to burn why not visit the fitness room?


Alternatively, try the Sandmann Inn, located just off the TransCanada highway, about two miles from the town centre and 7km to Revelstoke by car or the resort shuttle bus. This is a great choice for a group or a family, with indoor pool and outdoor pool and in-house restaurant.


It’s a long way, but it’s worth it…

The downside of Revelstoke is that it is still relatively difficult to get to.  It’s six hours by car from Calgary or 2 ½ from Kelowna (reached from Vancouver).  Although you can, of course, fly in by helicopter!

But then again, if it was easy, everyone would go there and spoil it for the rest of us in on the secret!
