Revelstoke

OUR OPINION

  • The only ski resort to offer Lift, Snowcat and Heli skiing all in one location.

  • Choice of staying in an authentic historic mountain town, or in ski-in, ski-out lodging at the mountain village.

  • The largest vertical descent [1713m] of any resort in North America. Great terrain for advanced levels.

  • Excellent snow record, with one of the highest snowfall averages in Canada.

  • Possibility to combine with Kicking Horse or other resorts on The Powder Highway.

ABOUT REVELSTOKE

Revelstoke has a rich and colourful history. It began as a settlement that sprang up in the 1860s during a short-lived gold rush. In 1883, the Surveyor General for British Columbia pre-empted a parcel of land where he knew the new railway would cross the river and named the town Farwell after himself. The name was later changed to Revelstoke in honor of Lord Revelstoke, the London financier who saved the Canadian Pacific Railway from bankruptcy.
