Revelstoke Mountain Resort Reviews & Tips (33)

Awesome mountain. Take water with you, as aren't too many places on the mountain to stop to re-hydrate and none is near the great bowls and glades.

Don't let the small number of lifts (three) fool you. The gondi and two HS quads move skiers around and the runs are long. Was there for three days before Cat skiing in Galena. We had no new snow, but coverage was great top to bottom. North bowl still had stashes of new snow 8 days after last big storm.This is no beginner or even intermediate mountain. Big, steep, and long runs...

we certainly picked an amazing week - over 80 cm of fresh snow . this is a big mountain - on par with Jackson Hole or whistler, Didnt get bored after skiing 7 days as we kept on finding out new secrets - favourite runs were snorkel glades, jalapeno, meet the neighbours. probably the best run I had was skiing fresh tracks down pitch black with a foot of fresh powder. There can be a big change in conditions top to bottom. We found ripper chair was a little more protected from the wind. Best deal was renting powder skis from Powder escapes in Revelstoke (2 blocks from Coopers) - they were perfect in all the snow - and surpised me in the glades

Sick mountain. Long runs. Great glades. I can't wait to come back on a powder day. Rode here Jan 23-26th. No new snow but found some good stashes here and there.

My third year visiting Revelstoke! Guaranteed snow, awesome conditions. I fly into Kelowna and hop the snow shuttle to Reve. Great resort, great pow pow, great hospitality, a ski resort worth the trip. Highly recommend.

Everything was great about our weekend, despite the lack of fresh snow. the top of the mountain was well above the cloudline, providing brilliantly sunny days and spring-like conditions in January. The people on the hill were friendly and helpful, and everyone seemed adequately happy to be there :) Tips: We buried our beer at the top of the Stoke chair, and at the end of the day, shared a cold one in the warming hut with floor to ceiling windows of the view, before heading down into town. Would consider doing the same at the top of the Ripper chair next time, as we liked the snow conditions there better: it doesn't get full sun during the day, so has less of that crust that happens with the melt'n'freeze cycle. While we went for aprés at the Village Idiot on Saturday and were quite satisfied, on Sunday we stopped at the Great White North on our way out of town (west on hwy 1) and had burgers (I'd been there before and wanted to return). Food was amazing, and it was empty - the distance from the hill makes it busy for dinner and after, not quite as early as aprés (we showed up at 4).

My review in three sections! 1. Getting to Revelstoke: Driving from Portland Oregon to Revelstoke was miserable. I am no slouch when it comes to driving in lousy conditions but the road between Kamloops and Revelstoke is one of the worst I've ever driven. Some decent reflective road markers would be a kind addition. The road there is the only deterrent to me wanting to come back which is sad. 2. Revelstoke Resort: Umm 5620 feet of yes please. I love big mountain snowboarding and Revelstoke delivers. You will spend more time on your board or skis than in the queue or on the lifts. You will be exhausted by the middle of the day and you will find terrain which excites you each and every run. If you like long but fast tree runs I recommend Tally Ho off to the right of the Stoke Chair. 3. City of Revelstoke: Charming little ski town. Revelstoke has everything you could want or need without feeling like you are in a big city nor does it feel like you are in the locals back yard. My wife and I took a stroll around town and everyone was friendly and courteous. Revelstoke as a whole is a winter playground still in the making. I highly recommend visiting, just drive carefully.

This mountain is certainly the best out there. I used my ski buddy app and was amazed by going 84km/hr on a blue run that had a mediocre slope when you compare it to all the other runs. There is a nice mix of groomed, powder and moguls, plus the snow is always perfect, well at least at the top of the mountain. I loved the fact you can go up to 12km to get down the hill. One full run from the top to the very bottom can be exhausting, so make sure you have gone before or at least did plenty of squats. The views are amazing so be ready to take lots of pictures. The wicked staff and locals are the cherry on top to a perfect ski/snowboard trip!

You know when you come to Revelstoke you are not coming to kid around. This mountain offers some serious chutes, glades, trees, mostly expert terrain. Hit the Stoke chair and lap the North & Greely Bowls. The runs end up through a gnarly but fun canyon/halfpipe type of run back to the Ripper & Stoke chairs. Don't be fooled about the limited amount of lifts (1 gondola & 2 chairs), this mountain skis huge. I snowboarded 1 day and the skied the 2nd day. Since it was warm it rained in Revelstoke, but puked snow from the gondola mid-station on up. The snow therefore was perfect on top and slushy & frozen on the bottom. This mountain gets an average of 6 meters of snow. I stayed at the SameSun Hostel in Revelstoke. The resort with the base gondola station is sleepy and the only retail store closes at 5 PM. Head down to Revelstoke to enjoy an authentic lumber & train town and eat breakfast at the "La Baguette" for some excellent French backed goodies. Check out the Ski Jump site on the base of Mt. Revelstoke, just outside of Revelstoke. This is where the history of skiing in Revelstoke began. I would definitely go back to Revi again & again and recommend it to every expert skier & snowboarder. Thank you Liftopia for saving me $ for a 2-day lift pass.

Revelstoke is an amazing mountain of just the right size! I've enjoy the natural snow, the groomer, the opened tree run and all the welcoming people in Revelstoke (mountain and city!) Revelstoke is a true outdoor city filled with passionate people ! I will for sure come back next year for an other amazing week at beautiful Revelstoke! Julie Québec.

So many non-skiers sit-side or kneel-side the trees here! Ruined. The "gladed" glades are the only ones that still have multiple line options because the tighter trees get just slipped into single direction safe little troughs. You can only go around a given tree in one direction. Also, it seems that 20cm of new is enough to make people line up around 7AM, so get here early if you want to be in the mad crush to leave a track in the dust. It is ok though because all the hotshots get tired around mid-day and leave. There is a brief jump in liftlines when the french fries and beer crowd come out, then no crowds at all until closing.

Revelstoke has MANY chutes, glades, treed areas, and out-of-the way places, all in bounds. So, if you aren't familiar, participate in the "Inside Tracks" program where a guide will show you the way in an all-day program for only $108 CAD. Before you arrive, do your ski conditioning because you'll need your strength to properly appreciate this amazing mountain.

Came with a group to ski for three days and was surprised to find how much area the limited lifts can cover. An amazing area. Mostly blue and black runs so not really designed for beginners at this point but many of the blue runs can be managed by newer skiers. Get ready for very long runs which gives you a lot of time on the mountain and, except for weekends, not much of a problem with lift lines. Would definitely like to return.

Our family arrived two days after a big dump of snow so the skiing was great. There aren't a lot of green runs but it takes so long to get down that we were fine. And we loved all the turns- it felt like being on a race track. Important tip: After the two gondolas there is another lift that goes to the top. I'm just beginning to ski on blues and was not prepared for the blue at the peak to be ungroomed. Only go to the top if you're ready for an ungroomed blue! My family had a blast and will definitely go again. We stayed five minutes away at a bed and breakfast with a hot tub-Guesthouse Mountain Escape. We appreciated the restful accomodation after all day on Revelstoke.

Amazing glades, never ending runs, powder heaven, mild temperatures, challenging and amazing!!!! TIP: You WILL be exhausted after a day at Revelestoke, this mountain is huge and challenging - which is awesome!! The only negative I can think of is the run that you have to take to get to the Ripper chair lift, its pretty long and has flat spots which is tough for a boarder. On the other hand, I was having major problems with my boots so it may have felt much longer than it is. Lets not forget about the town of Revelestoke itself. Amazing restaurants and an adorable mountain town with nice shops - I bought a new pair of boots that night and was helped but a very knowledgeable staff. I felt like I was truly in a skiing/boarding town. Cute bakeries and coffee shops all around and for dinner, check out Kawakubo Japanese restaurant. I love sushi and they were surprisingly fantastic!!! Highly Recommend this mountain and town. The whole experience is awesome!!!!!!!

Enjoy one of BC best kept Secrets! Just spent three wonderful days of skiing one of the best mountains - sun, great snow on the top half of the mountain. Last day had 4cm of fresh snow which somehow left 30cm of snow in the north bowl - great morning before everyone else discovered it! No lift line ups on a weekend is such a relief compared to Whistler! Yes there are a lack of runs which on the upper part of the mountain are more suited for the advance skier - but the groomed runs make it easy, even for an intermediate skier. Looking forward to going back next winter in January , February and experience some of the powder everyone talks about. Awesome mountain!!!!

We were there the week of March 18th 2012. Great snow conditions. Excellent cat skiing. Be sure to do Parachute. Heli is overpriced. We did Selkirk heli operations. We only skiied 3 hours, lunch was o.k.. Then they up charge you 132.00 dollars for 2 runs. There are better values. Did I mention the cat skiing was excellent

Most amazing 2 days in Revelstoke!! Was watching snow-forecast all week and the snow was looking average, but after a 12 hour trip from Whistler (detour due to avalanche road closure), we ended up in thigh-deep, super light, epic conditions! Due to the road closure the first day there was noone in the lineups and deep snow covering the groomed runs aswell as in between the trees...AAaahhh the trees!! TIP: Be sure to check before your travel!

One of the most EPIC mountains I have ever been to!!!! I also Snowboard and this mountain is great for both. No other mountain on the planet can you ski/ride over a mile of vertical in a single run (5620') and not wait in a single line all day. This mountain is definitely the next up and coming resort and I would recommend going there before the secret gets out to too many folks.

My family and I (age 13 to 18, all expert) enjoyed an amazing week at Revelstoke. We will be back very soon. I was fearful when I saw the resort was served by only three lifts, but these are ample, and the crowds were thin, friendly, and youthful. We easily put in 4500 meters (15,000 feet) of skiing a day and topped 6000 one day. Everyone was blissfully exhausted. Revelstoke out does Blackcomb, Jackson Hole, and Snowbird for the quantity and quality of extremely challenging steeps and treed glades that our family loves to ski. If you want to get up to speed on the resort fast - I strongly recommend getting an in-bounds guide for your first day at the mountain. S/he will save you a mile of hiking and reveal hidden stashes of powder several days after a storm. You can tell the resort is still a bit green and the quality of service is a mix with a few unprofessional employees tarnishing the experience a bit. On the good side, Ned, the head coach of the race team, was amazingly helpful, lift attendants all seemed happy to be there. On the other hand, Kyle, the bartender at mid-mountain, was unbelievably rude and offensive (we were not drinking alcohol, so he may have been a bit peeved at the amount we spent). You would never find someone like this at the mature destination resort this will one day become. DO: - Eat at the Village Idiot. Great food, ambiance, and staff. Get a table in the back though so you stay away from the drafty door. - Go to the city pool. They have done a phenomenal job with this place. DO NOT: - eat at Frisby Ridge Teriyaki (slow service, botched orders, and simply did not care).

This is an awesome mountain. The tree skiing is very tight and the "glades" would be considered forests in the US. If you get a week with snow you will have fresh powder all day every run. Not a lot for lower level skiers, but it was awesome for higher level skiing.

Cannot beat the vertical for the price, however it is not easy to get to from the States, a 3 hour drive from Kelowna which is the nearest airport. The mountain was empty so no lines but there are only 4 lifts! There are very limited runs for more than a weekend of skiing, Great GS if you are into that but few moguls. Good powder with a short hike. There are no altitude or attitude issues. Overall, not worth the long trek from the States at this time, with more development of the slopes should mature nicely. We went heli 2 days with Eagle Pass and so that made the long trip worth while.

My second year back to Revelstoke. Can't say anything negative about the skiing. We had great conditions and lots of powder the whole week. I'm from Ontario so left my skis back home and rented from this great shop in town, "Powder Rentals". Got some great "pow-boards" cheaper than at the hill. Check them out. Cheers

we were cat skiers in the past but had not been to the resort to see how they had managed the development. we enjoyed the mountain tremendously- they have done a very nice job of covering the mountain with just one gondola and a couple of lifts. we were blessed with some excellent powder- both in and out of the trees.
