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.

Great place, trying to be glitzy, if they achieve it I might not return. Shame though, skiing was pretty good, although the lower reaches were struggling for snow which limited the skiable territory a bit.

Loved Reve, the hill (a very serious hill, all about the skiing), the old town, the cool bars - It was amazing

20/03/2019 Chris Cookson

The resort itself had a great feel. A few small shops, but seemed to lack a small general store. We wanted to buy some milk when we arrived at 20:00, but found we couldn’t unless we drove back into Revy. A bit of a queue for the lifts at times with a one or two lifts being bottlenecks. The new lift and runs planned for next year should help with that.
