Revel Stoke

It’s time to upgrade and stretch out as you appreciate the comfortable surroundings of our new lodge “The Winter Sports Lodge”. A massive kitchen with an entertainment area, a log fireplace and a jacuzzi is a must for those long days on the slopes: large rooms, even larger beds and a mix of rooms to suit all budgets. So relax in plush surroundings on your days off or when you want to put your feet up and go “Ahhhhhhhhh”. Limited places to stay in this fantastic lodge for the final half of your 9-week program. 5 mins from the resort and 10 mins from town, the lodge is perfect for those wanting to avoid long bus journeys and enjoy the extra comfort.

Revelstoke Resort

Revelstoke is a relatively new resort but quickly making a name for itself as a venue for the pros. A towering presence, After 2 Gondolas, you are still nowhere near the top of this impressive mountain. It has the longest vertical drop in North America, spanning over a great vibe on and off the mountain. Vast terrain with easy access to the backcountry and industrial amounts of snow ensures this is a must-see for any enthusiast. The town is considered to have one of the best collections of eateries on the Powder Highway, with influences from all over the world.


Sun Peaks Resort

Sun Peaks hosts our Level 1, 2 & 3 programs, it’s a perfect playground, a brilliant test bed free from crowds, allowing you to strive and quickly improve to the standard required by CASI/CSIA. Spend quality time on the mountain and not on the buses. Everything is at your fingertips, all aspects of your program taken care of so you can just concentrate on developing your techniques whilst being exposed to some of the most thrilling runs offered by this #1 resort.

The resort of Sunpeaks is snuggly nestled in the valley between 3 mountains spanning 4200ac of fantastic terrain,

Take the lifts to the Top of the World, breathe in the expansive vistas as the snow ghosts take a bow to the Bluebird mornings. Catch one of the 13 lifts, get immersed in one of the 137 runs, and disappear into 16 gladed areas.

Finding some of the best-untouched powder amongst tree-lined runs to the 10-acre terrain pack is a treat for anyone wanting to get the most out of this fulfilling venue. Avoid the white-out days, the chaos and long lift queues that plague some of our neighbouring resorts.
Offering some of the best conditions that BC offers and officially the sunniest resort in BC, it’s no surprise that people flock from around the world to see what the fuss is about. Maybe that’s why the Interski trials are held here.

“The resort itself was great with a good variety of shops and restaurants, and everyone around is super friendly and always willing to help where they can. The mountain offers lots of different terrain and difficulty levels as well as the chance to explore SunPeaks backcountry. Our training was amazing! I was taught by a variety of instructors, each one with a new perspective and something new to teach. We also had a consistent couple of instructors for our training magic, we til anion them and Vice versa. It has truly been an incredible season and I have all intentions of returning to Sun Peaks to continue my training and put my qualifications to use.”
