You’ve never visited a place quite like it before. With a winter population of only 14,000, it’s no wonder that Revelstoke still oozes small-town charm. Spend more than a week in the town, and you’ll start to recognize familiar faces on the slopes, in the bars, or at one of the locally owned and operated coffee shops. Over 120 years of skiing history has become part of the town’s fabric, creating a community that celebrates winter in all its forms. For the ultimate in powder, try a heli-ski day trip or cat ski adventure. Travel up mountains by snowcat or drop in by helicopter to untouched powder, and over half a million acres of ski terrain in the spectacular Selkirk and Monashee Mountains.
