Located in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the ultimate ski destination for experienced and adventurous skiers. Groomers, glades, bowls, and backcountry skiing come together in one exception mountain playground — plus the region is blanketed by over 50 feet of snow annually.
Despite its recent emergence on the scene, the area around Revelstoke, B.C. has been known in skiing circles as a top destination for cat-skiing and heli-skiing for decades. Skiers from around the world have flocked to Revelstoke, attracted by its perfect powder, varied alpine terrain, and quaint mountain community.
Until recently the town was relatively undeveloped and solely accessible via the backcountry. All of that changed in 2007 when Revelstoke made the biggest North American ski resort debut in the past two decades.
Since its grand opening, Revelstoke has offered the most vertical of any ski resort in North America at 5620 ft (1713 m). The resort currently offers over 3,121 acres of skiable terrain across 4 high alpine bowls, legendary glades, and phenomenal groomers. The area is still under development — when completed, it will cover over 10,000 acres, placing it above Whistler to claim the crown of the largest ski resort in North America.
Congratulations on selecting Revelstoke as your Skican vacation destination! Although Revelstoke is best known for its terrific skiing/riding, the area offers plenty of additional activities for you to enjoy during your stay.
