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 - excellent, great vertical and skiing, no queues, small centre with all facilities needed

15/02/2017 Christopher Malpass

Excellent resort. One main gondola to link with fast 4 man chair with little queuing. Extensive runs through pine trees.

What can I say but WOW and WOW again. We loved it - have to go back, it is just a fab place to ski and board, but NOT if you are nervous or if your skills are at the lower end. The temperatures were low, -10 mid mountain and -19 at the top. Blue Bird days, but cold. Conditions were interesting and caught your attention. With low temperatures and not much fresh snow for a couple of weeks equalled some very FAST and ICY runs. Some of the blues were so moguled that some of the blacks were easier to ride. Fine once we were aware but led to some colourful language when we came across them rather suddenly. (Not a great fan of mogul fields but our skills certainly improved by the end of the week - when needs must, one just has to up one’s game) But, as a bonus because of the lack of new powder the locals weren’t out to play. There were times when we had runs to ourselves - we were at Revy and had runs all to ourselves, how lucky were we ?? !! Revelstoke has such an incredible vibrant feel, it hits you as soon as you arrive. The staff at the Summit Hotel, the bars, cafe and shops all are so full of energy you can’t help but feed on it and it shows in the huge smiles and the easy way people enter into conversations with each other. It is very noticeable how nearly every one we spoke with commented on how lucky / privileged they were to be there, feelings we shared wholeheartedly. It started snowing Friday, our last day. By early afternoon we were playing in a little powder, not the pillows that Revelstoke is known for but it was still a lot of fun playing over some rollers beside the park and at the edge of some trees.

The ski season is now just weeks away! While a handful of resorts are already offering limited glacier skiing, most will be fully open by the end of November. Two weeks ago we took a look at the first snowfall photos across the USA, now the rest of the world is catching up. Most notably, Whistler...
