Frontline to the action

Revelstoke is a relatively new resort but quickly makes a name for itself as a venue for the pros and powder junkies. A towering presence, After 2 Gondolas, you are still nowhere near the top of this impressive mountain. It has the longest vertical drop in North America, with a great vibe on and off the mountain. Vast terrain with easy access to the backcountry and industrial amounts of snow ensures this is a must-see for any enthusiast. The town is considered to have one of the best collections of eateries on the Powder Highway, with influences from all over the world.

The lodge books up early and places are very limited we only take 12 in the lodge and 24 on the program, staying at alternative accommodation in town when the lodge is full.
