Exploring RMR

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the most recent resort development in BC?s interior. Offering 4,735 feet of vertical and plans for significant future expansion, a small contingent from the TSKJ office made the drive through the mountains last weekend to check things out.

Upon arrival conditions were mixed?the resort hadn?t received significant snowfall in a couple weeks and was experiencing spring like snow on the lower mountain. But, thanks to the significant vertical rise, things were still cool up top and a quick hike into North facing aspects revealed the goods: dry, knee deep powder waiting to be skied in the alpine bowls. Thanking ourselves for packing the appropriate avalanche safety gear, we proceeded to yo-yo our way around the ridges of the North Bowl on the resort?s backside, getting fresh turns and a few nice drops in the process.

RMR is the real deal: big lines from the alpine to tree line and long, wide groomers top to bottom. Expansion should only improve this already diverse mountain, which was definitely worth the trip.
