“15 km green run!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

The snow was perfect, the skiers friendly and the weather ideal. We are lapsed skiers, but were able to ski all afternoon on one 15 km green run from the very top of the mountain. It was fantastic, even though we may not be able to walk tomorrow. Just a wonderful way to spend Christmas Day. Loved it!!

“No lines, no hassles, awesome runs, epic views... Just too many flats!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

You only have 3 lifts to worry about so you won't get lost. However, getting to the Ripper lift is a massive project that involves plenty of flats. I didn't find all the work I put into getting there to be worth it. My recommendation is that anytime you can get some momentum going you better go as fast as you can handle cause the next turn will likely be a long flat. If you're on skis its not horrible I guess but on a board it stinks! I encountered so many flats here I couldn't believe it. Once you get the runs sorted out it becomes amazing. It's clearly a new mountain and the signage and amenities are very limited so just be adventurous and you'll have a great time.

Stick to the Stoker lift and you can have awesome run after awesome run.

Bring plenty of swag money. This place has some great Revelstoke branded gear.

“Skiing In Revelstoke”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is not a very family friendly or beginner ski hill. The green runs here would be equal to blue runs elsewhere. Very steep runs

“AMAZING POWDER”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If, you want lots of vertical skiing, without the hassle of line ups at the lifts, and great powder, then you need to visit RMR! It, definitely, can't compare to the glitter, like Whistler, but, skiing-snow boarding wise it's a 10 for value.
This hill has so much terrain, you need more than a day to enjoy the entire mountain. There are a variety of runs to choose from, from glades to bowls to tree skiing. The lift line ups a rare, because of the vast skiing area, on a bad day you may stand in a line for 8 minutes tops. You will get in lots of vertical. There is lots of natural snow, no need for a snow making machine!

“Monster Mountain”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Revelstoke Mountain Resort has, over the past 6 years, become one of the go-to resorts for experienced riders and powder-hounds the world over. It has massive vertical, huge variety, short lines and excellent snow.

First things first- beginners should stay clear of RMR. It's not that there isn't terrain for them, but there isn't much, and it can be very average at lower altitudes. Experienced riders will have a tremendous time in the higher altitude reaches of the mountain, where all the trees and steeps are to be found.

Groomed runs at RMR are a little bit of a crap-shoot. Some are excellent, whereas some could use more attention. This has been steadily improving over the years, and the majority of cruisers are very pleasant, with only several being consistently chewed up. Glades are a mixed bag of open, mellow, tight and steep- they're awesome. There are some glades that are maybe a little too tight, but most of these are supposed to have been dealt with over the past summer. There are, however, some real gems to be found all over the mountain with lots of line choices, deep snow and relatively easy access.

The alpine sections of RMR are truly amazing. The large back bowl provides an incredible amount of advanced/expert terrain that is very easily accessed and is more than enough to keep anybody entertained for weeks. There is a tremendous variety of terrain, and the snow is consistently very good. Even when the resort is busy, you'll be able to find stashes of fresh powder all over the place.

Food and lodging options at the resort are limited. There are good places to eat, but only a few of them. They do offer good value though. In town, Revelstoke is typical of railway towns- bars, pubs, pizza joints. There's really nothing fancy, but it works. There are a variety of motel or basic hotel options in town. The locals are super friendly, and the town has a really nice vibe about it.

The single best thing about RMR is the sheer size of the place. You can, even on a busy day, be the only person in sight on some runs. Riding a major run with nobody else around is incredibly cool.
