Revelstoke Mountain Terrain
Once inside the eight-seater high-speed The Revelation Gondola if you are looking to warm up on some blue runs you have a couple of options once you check the grooming report.
You can head skiers left along the green Last Spike that will take you across to the blues of Feller Buncher and Wooley Bully. Or you can head up the Stoke Chair and that Critical Path to The Ripper Connector and head down Burn Down where you can do laps on The Ripper Chair.
Once warmed up, have some fun down Devil’s Club from the top of the Stoke Chair, (a black then blue run) top to bottom to feel the exhilaration and the burn!
On a powder day, expect a lift line first thing (until the locals go back to work), and if you are advanced to expert, depending on what is open and when your best bet is to get up as high as possible and eat up as many powder-turns as humanly possible with spectacular tree skiing, amazing steep runs all the while remembering to stay safe and be sure to follow any closures and instructions and be aware of any avalanche bulletins.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort also owns and operates Selkirk Tangiers Heli-Skiing operations and including their Cat Skiing terrain you have access to 515,000 acres of world-class terrain.
If it’s your first time skiing or riding at Revelstoke Mountain resort you can join the daily mountain tour at 12:30 pm. Meet at the trail map signs next to Mackenzie Outpost at the top of the Revelation Gondola.
For beginners at Revelstoke
You have picked an interesting challenge to begin your skiing career, however, the Revelstoke Snow School does cater really well for first times skiers and manages their somewhat limited beginner terrain really well. There are a couple of learning areas, Turtle Creek Beginner Area and Little Bit at the Revelation Lodge.
Once you’re up and running from the top of the Revelation Gondola you can head skiers left down Last Spike and depending on how where you going can drop in and out of some fun wide-open rolling runs or head back to the green Last Spike to keep building your confidence and your new skills.
