Revelstoke

Revelstoke has a raw energy.  It has the pulse of a big city, but the adrenaline is all natural coming from the pleasure of serious powder. Fact: If you ski Revelstoke Mountain Resort from top to bottom eight times in one day, you will have skied the height of Mt. Everest - because RMR has bragging rights with its 5,620 feet of vertical. Pack your ski legs for the awesome glades and expect nothing less than a premier experience on the rest of slopes. Stay in accommodations that include a powder concierge ? whose job it is to uncover some snowy stashes just for you. Also, be sure to try the snowmobiling trails, which attract riders from around the world.
