Revelstoke – Mountain

Revelstoke, fondly known as Revy, sits at the heart of British Columbia and is known for big dumps and big mountain terrain. Resting on the face of Mount Mackenzie, the resort takes the awards for the longest vertical descent and the most powder per rider in North America. A stop on the Powder Highway route, Revy sees an insane amount of snowfall each year. Boasting powder-filled alpine bowls, endless glades and wider groomers – Revy is a freeriders paradise. Its reputation rests on being steep and deep, there is a more mellow side. At the base of the resort, there is a dedicated beginner’s learning zone, and off the lifts up the resort, there are plenty of blue runs to be found. The sort of terrain that Revy offers makes freeriding and teaching exciting and varied.

Revelstoke – Resort

New to the 23 / 24 season, we’re stoked to be running ski and snowboard courses here. You’ll be living in the town of Revy, and you’ll be immersed in a community of others who love and live for the snow. But the resort itself offers on the mountain lodges for ride breaks, and options at the base of the hill for apres food and drinks. Revy, as a mountain and a town, is where all the cool kids hang out and certainly the place to take your ski and snowboard instructor course for your gap year, time out, or career development.

This year the resort and its surrounding backcountry hosted the Yeti Natural Selection tour, a freeriding competition which showcases the best riders and lines. All of this shows why Revy is the hub of extreme sports. But if you fancy a break from adrenaline hits, downtown is littered with cafes, restaurants and bars. Dose Coffee for an Aussie style brunch and coffee, The Last Drop for late nights, Nico’s for pizza slices and beer at the Bierhaus are all must dos!
