Revelstoke Mountain Resort is a ski and snowboard resort on the Powder Highway located near the city of Revelstoke, British Columbia. The Ski Resort is found on Mount MacKenzie, which is part of the Selkirk Mountain range of British Columbia.

Perhaps a little-known fact is that Mount MacKenzie is named after the second Prime Minister of Canada, Sir Alexander MacKenzie. The resort has grown from the original Powder Springs Ski Area, which opened in the late 60’s, with a vertical drop of 335m/1100ft, a modest 45 acres of skiable terrain and a two-person lift to a resort that now features the largest vertical drop of any ski area in North America.

Construction of the present Revelstoke Mountain Resort complete with ski in/ski out accommodations started in 2005 and debuted December 22, 2007. Revelstoke Mountain Resort boasts a small quaint and charming village vibe and is the only resort to offer lift, cat, heli, through Selkirk Tangiers and backcountry skiing and snowboarding operations, all from one village. Did you know Revelstoke Mountain Resort is home to four bowls, North, South, Greely and Powder Assault which are amazing any day, but when it snows and it does, these bowls make it a great place to go have fun in snow.

On the Slopes

  • Revelstoke Mountain Resort is quickly earning a reputation among its peers for its terrain quality. One could say that the terrain is tailored towards intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders. That being said, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is also creating a family friendly environment, so even beginners you can still enjoy the luxury of skiing or snowboarding from the summit via The Last Spike, which is one the longest beginners runs found anywhere.
  • Revelstoke Mountain Resort offers some incredible fall line skiing and snowboarding that will test your strength and provide an adrenaline rush on the black diamond run of Pitch Black, which extends from the summit to the Revelation Lodge. Another cool favourite is the black diamond run, Devil’s Club, which begins at the summit and takes the Devil’s journey to the base where at this point you will be glad the trail is now classified as an intermediate run. You can always say the devil made me do it when you reach the base area.
  • The mountain features two terrain parks, the Ghome Zone which is the smaller park, great for everyone looking to gain confidence before moving to the Revelstoke Mountain Resort Progression Park. Covering approximately 14 acres, the Progression terrain park is located under the Stoke Chair and features over 20 jumps and a variety of jib features. This park is geared to handle a range of ability levels spread over the 450m/1476ft long area. Get ready to have some fun and create memories, while staying within your limits.
  • The Ski and Snowboard School consists of a dedicated group of instructors whose priority it is to improve your ability whether it is your first time on the slopes or you are trying to improve your technique to get to the next ability level. Lessons are available for children and adults and are available in a group setting or for those wishing some detailed instruction, private lessons are available.
  • Above are just a few examples of the fun that awaits the entire family as you venture on to the slopes. If you are just starting out, Turtle Creek, at the base of the mountain, hosts a magic carpet surface lift and beginner slopes for those looking to gain confidence and enjoy a day of skiing or snowboarding. There is also a tube park located in the same area.
  • Revelstoke Mountain Resort also plays host to the two day women's ski program known as Girls Do Ski. This annual event is usually held on the 3rd weekend in January. This is a great time to make new friends, try new gear and have a fun girls weekend out.
