While the town of Revelstoke boasts more than a century of ski history, Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR) is practically brand new. Canada’s newest ski resort claims the longest lift-served vertical in North America at 1,712 metres (5,620 feet). With 69 named runs—45 per cent classified as intermediate and another 47 per cent designated as advanced—strong skiers will find themselves at home on 1,263 hectares (3,121 acres) of terrain.
Jan 19, 2019: “My first time at Revy with my family was a blast. A cloud always seems to hover over the summit. 76 cm snow reported over 12 days and that felt legit - on the upper mountain, too much powder to practice moguls. So I had to ski the bowls and glades and steep groomers. Alas. The on-hill culture is friendly and excited to ski.
Not really a “beginner-friendly” hill yet, mainly because the lower mountain with the light blues and learner greens was often around the freezing point and closed (top 4500 feet of vertical had great snow, below that was hit-and-miss). Though this was early season. However, the resort is installing a new lift at mid-mountain to open the higher mountain for beginners (where the snow is better) and make it easier for low intermediates to get to the North side which has great light blue cruisers. So it is getting better for families of mixed abilities like mine.
The physical resort is “small” but done right. My family is fussy about luxury and we loved it. Ski and stay packages are more affordable compared to destination Eastern resorts. The ski school was very accommodating as our needs changed hugely over our holiday.
I disagree with the “remote” comments, at least from Toronto: a direct flight to Kelowna and drive to the hill is similar to driving to any Vermont resort. Compared to other Western resorts, one hour closer is immaterial. The town is charming, historic, friendly, good restaurants - no silverware, just really good food. Bucket-list Revy. It made me a better skier and so did my family. We will be back.” 0

It handles crowds well and the service levels are top notch no matter where you go. There is so much access to all the kinds of skiing I love. Steep, deep and treed. There is something for every skiier if that isn't your cup of tea.” 1
