It’s the first year (2008) that they have run the resort as Revelstoke Mountain Resort. It used to be a very small place called Powder Springs with only one old double chair and only open a few days a week. Now they have a high-speed 8-passenger gondola and a high-speed quad chair. You get […]
After only one day at this resort, my impression does not really match other recommendations on the Internet. Sure, with fresh snow, it has to be great, and they usually get a lot of snow. Without fresh snow for a few days, the vertical is just not good enough, and the two slow double […]
Absolutely a MUST GO resort if you are in Canada. I could probably write forever about all the good stuff up there but rather than that just a few details.
It’s huge and will keep you busy for days. Beginner all the way up to experts are going to be happy at this resort.
It can […]
The first time I did like this resort but the second time I got bored very fast. There are areas with black runs but still I would recommend this resort to beginner all they way up to advanced skier and boarder. Experts will get bored too fast. For sure a great family resort with […]
I really like this resort. There are so many double-back diamond runs that will keep you busy for days. High-speed chairs and some tree skiing. Beginner and intermediate will find enough good stuff too, and therefore, this mountain is recommended for any kind of skier and boarder.
Lift lines: Usually between 10 and 11 a.m., […]
Heliskiing is like skiing in heaven. However, there are a few things to note. The company: Selkirk Tangiers is a well known heliskiing company in Revelstoke. After 29 years, the company was sold in 2007 to the former cat skiing company that operated above the only chair lift in Revelstoke. Formerly called “Powder Springs,” […]
If you like tree skiing this resort is a MUST GO. It it will keep you busy. Many double black diamond runs all over the mountain. This resort is not meant to be a beginner mountain. There is one T-Bar but even this area is not what I call a real beginner spot. Intermediate […]
Powder Springs is now Revelstoke Mountain Resort
This resort had only one double chair until 2007. It was not even open every day and therefore not really worth it. However, they get great amounts of snow, and it was at least an option when heliskiing in Revelstoke was not possible due to weather or any […]
In the middle of nowhere. Very small and not steep enough. They get incredible amounts of snow. Usually open only Thursday to Sunday and this will make Thursdays very often to powder days. However, I don’t think it is worth the driving. We had no fresh snow and got bored before lunch. According to […]
A very nice resort between Kicking Horse and Fernie. Kimberly is on the way as well. Not the biggest and not the steepest but with the newly built high-speed quads well worth a day or two of skiing. As long as 100% of the mountain is open advanced and experts will find enough double […]
