My kids and I skied Revelstoke in the week of March 10, 2014. The mountain is superb, but the facilities are not yet family friendly. There is no day lodge at the base of the mountain, so there is nowhere to put on ski boots, rent a locker or have a brown bag lunch unless one takes a gondola ride and a magic carpet ride to the mid-station in order to do so. There is a road to the mid-station, but it is only open to staff, not customers, forcing one to carry everything up. There are of course numerous restaurants at the base of the mountain, and it is clear that the lack of facilities is intended to boost restaurant sales. At the dozens of small and large resorts that I've skied, there has always been a day lodge at the base. I can't imagine Revelstoke will survive much longer if they continue to turn their back on families, who are uninterested in being forced to pay high prices for lunch on top of all the other costs that come with a family ski trip.
