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 1100ft/335m, 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 village with a quaint vibe and is the only resort to offer lift, cat, heli (through Selkirk Tangiers), and backcountry skiing, and snowboarding operations, all from one village.
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 Revelstoke one of the best ski areas to find that perfect powder stash.
Today, Revelstoke Mountain Resort has grown from being known only within the local community to a ski resort that has earned a worldwide reputation for great skiing and snowboarding.
On the Slopes
- Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s terrain is tailored towards intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders on trails such as Critical Path, Cannonball, and Snow Rodeo.
