REVELSTOKE MOUNTAIN RESORT
At Revelstoke Mountain Resort, we register for overnight parking then decamp to the day lot. Throughout BC skiing, great (and safety-conscious) lodgings from kitchen-equipped slopeside sleeps to cool ski town hotels are prominent signatures, and Revy is no exception—but we’re not alone in the parking lot, where a dozen other RVs from homemade to high-end are tucking in for the night. Truman, a 90-pound white shepherd-mix, makes the rounds. By the time lifts start turning the next morning, every campervan-sleeping ski bum touring the Powder Highway somehow knows Truman by name.
Revelstoke is the tallest top-to-bottom ski area in North America, but its real lure for adventurous skiers and snowboarders is its frequent snowfall, thigh-burning pitch, and diverse terrain. From the compact base village, a two-stage gondola ferries powder hounds up, up, up. Then everyone disperses across the mountain’s three chairlifts and 3,121 acres of boulevards, basins, and skiable woods.
