Known as North America’s greatest vertical resort, Revelstoke is a small town with a huge reputation among expert skiers as an off-piste winter paradise.

“Revie” boasts one of Canada’s snowiest ski areas and is also the world’s only resort offering lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing from one village base. The resort itself consists of one main gondola and three high-speed chair lifts. You might be thinking that this sounds a little small, but the amount of terrain these chairs access is staggering. If you are willing to go for a short hike over the backside of the mountain, the accessible terrain opens up even further. With an average of 10.5m of snowfall per year, deep powder is never far away in Revie.

Back in the charming old mining town, you can try award-winning local craft beers, visit one of the many local restaurants or try your hand at axe-throwing!


The stunning scenery, friendly locals and lively downtown vibes are all part of Revelstoke’s charm. The passionate community has created a town that represents the diverse interests of the people who live there, from live music and craft brews to locally made art and industrial museums.

Many guests head to Revelstoke to get their powder ski legs before heading out on a week’s heli-ski trip, or as part of a bigger ski trip around the Powder Highway.
