Why Revelstoke?

Located in the Selkirk mountains of British Columbia, just minutes from the town of Revelstoke, Revelstoke Mountain Resort offers lift, cat and heli-skiing/ boarding holidays in one mountain playground.

Revelstoke was once the exclusive playground of heli and cat skiers from around the world. This all changed in 2007 with the opening of Revelstoke Mountain Resort and its big plans for the future. Development both on and off the mountain continues as the area is transformed into a four season world class holiday resort.

The resort features the longest lift-serviced vertical descent in North America at 5,620 feet. At present there are 3121 acres of skiable terrain accessed by 2 high-speed quad chairs, an eight-passenger gondola and a Magic Carpet lift on the dedicated beginner slope. The Mid-Mountain Lodge features breathtaking vistas and a counter-service restaurant with espresso bar, deck with barbeque and local beer on tap.

With majestic alpine bowls, legendary tree skiing, a continuous fall line and lofty rolling groomers, the terrain options are endless.  An additional three exclusive alpine bowls for cat-skiing and half-a-million acres of snow-cat and helicopter skiing and snowboarding terrain are offered by the resort.

The signature property at the resort is The Sutton Place Hotel, located directly in the village base. Three lodge-style buildings house a total of 211 condo-style, luxury hotel rooms with ski-in/ski-out access and incredible mountain views. A brand new outdoor, year-round pool and two additional hot tubs plus a spacious, fully-equipped exercise facility complete the amenities for this ultra-modern ski resort lodging. The recent addition of Mountain Child Care expands the offered services with both daytime and evening child-minding available.

The village base offers a variety of unique eating establishments and après-ski spots. Rockford Wok|Bar|Grill is a full-service, lounge-style restaurant offering breakfast, lunch, après-ski, dinner, and late-night meal options while Wino: The Wine Bar offers a unique alpine-chic interior with an extensive drink menu featuring a variety BC wines. La Baguette is a local favourite downtown, now joining the resort village and offering a selection of home-baked goods, sandwiches, and delicious treats such as homemade gelato.

Downtown Revelstoke offers an authentic Canadian mountain-town atmosphere with additional accommodation, a selection of bars and restaurants, shops, and other attractions for entertainment.

Heli and Cat-Skiing:

Selkirk Tangiers Helicopter Skiing is located in the heart of the world’s best heli-skiing. Two impressive mountain ranges, the Selkirks and the Monashees, provide unmatched terrain. Unique snow conditions and mild climate provide great powder December through April. Selkirk Tangiers boasts over 500,000 acres of terrain with over 200 established runs.

Revelstoke Cat-skiing offers access to untracked terrain and world-renowned powder skiing in the legendary Selkirks.  Snow-cats will take skiers and boarders to all levels of terrain, from wide-open bowls, to steep chutes and cornices.

Details of both heli-skiing and cat-skiing in Revelstoke will be added to our website shortly.  In the meantime, please call Rupert on 01273 224 060 for details.
