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.

Revelstoke had the best skiing conditions and facilities I have experienced to date, this was partly due to fortunate weather, but partly due to the newness and efficient running of the mountain. Despite having only three big lifts, it's a huge place, with a wealth of runs for the intermediate to advanced skier. Being new to North American skiing we were blown away by how skiable the whole area was (trees and all!), the incredible length and breadth of some of the runs and all the time in pretty decent to excellent powder. Would recommend to anyone who loves to ski!

Great resort, ideal area for the type of skiing we enjoy, plenty of tree skiing and good snow conditions, resort itself was limited with regard to places to eat and drink, but what there was was very good.

Excellent service and seamless organisation.Although limited catering options in resort it's only a 5min shuttle bus to downtown Revelstoke. Bit of a trek getting there....fly to Calgary,then internal flight to Kelowna then 3hr plus transfer but worth it. Having only the one main lift from village base means the first hour can be busy particularly at weekends but once you get onto the slopes everyone disappears. No surprises if you've done your homework though.

Spring officially sprung this week, which means that the end of the 17/18 ski season is sadly not far away. It also means that it's a good time to take a look at the big winners for snowfall, including 12 resorts in our programme which have topped 10 metres. Of course, huge snowfall isn't the only...
