A remote mountain playground for experts, Canada’s newest resort Revelstoke has long been a prime location for heli-skiing.

Once an exclusive heli-ski playground, Revelstoke Resort opened in 2007, adding a new network of graded slopes that feature North America’s longest lift-serviced vertical.

The world’s only resort to offer lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing from one base, we recommend hiring a guide to get the most out of Revelstoke. Three powdery bowls are set aside for cat-skiing and there’s half-a-million acres of heli-drop terrain - advance booking is essential for both, so ask our expert, Rupert, to arrange this for you.

For advanced skiers, the resort works best as part of a Rockies Loop Ski Safari but it doesn’t have to be all about hardcore skiing on Revelstoke ski holidays. There’s a dedicated beginner slope and just under half the terrain is aimed at intermediates.

When it’s time to click off your skis, the mid-mountain lodge has a fabulously scenic barbecue deck and, while the base village is small, nearby Revelstoke town has more than 50 bars and restaurants.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Call 01273 224060 for advice from our ski specialists.

Another hidden gem. Canadians seem to know it well and despite Canadian school holidays it is never crowded. The top third of the mountain has masses of powder snow, especially the North Bowl side. Some amazing ski runs and most beautiful skiing between tall trees, at all levels. There are few lunch places, but its rather charming and the Sutton Place Resort is great (we had a kitchen) as it is so convenient. It only takes 5 minutes to drive down to Revelstoke town or you can take a complimentary bus as well. The drive over Rogers Pass on a sunny day is spectacular and also around Banff.

Two resort trip - Kicking Horse/Revelstoke. Excellent ski areas with plenty of vertical challenge & off-piste.

Once complete, this resort will have 20 lifts, right now it has a gondola and 2 main lifts servicing the North bowl and Frontside ski areas. The North Bowl has some great black runs accessible by hikes with superb snow, interesting rock and ridge formations finishing with tree skiing around creeks - watch out for the surprise holes! The root side is much more piste with mainly blue and black runs criss-crossed by a 9.5 mile green road. Watch out at the intersections! There is a range of tree skiing from easy and fun glades to tight and steep. friendly lifties and only a few queues. When we headed off to the trees, we skied pretty much alone. Once the powder arrived, this place came into its own. Resort accommodation top notch!

Andy, Luke and I headed back to Canada this winter in search of one thing - powder. Mission accomplished. Our careful planning took us to three incredible resorts: Revelstoke in BC, the home of heli-skiing and some of the deepest snow in Canada, followed by Big White and Sun Peaks in the Okanagan,...
