Traveling for skiing can be a dangerous enterprise–inevitably, at some point a certain spot will catch you like quicksand, dreams and aspirations smothered under deep, deep powder. Revelstoke, the small logging and railroad town in the heart of BC’s Selkirk Range, is alluring to the point of infamy…or, as the local transplants call it, Revelstuck. Risking this BC black hol,e The Bomb Snow TV crew heads north to find the goods.
The tale, as told by Bomb Snow Magazine:
The Bomb Snow Brigade sent it up North to Revelstoke, British Columbia for the month of January to chase deep pow and explore new zones. Upon arrival, 40-60 + cm of fresh made for unbelievable shredding. Stop number one of the Freeride World Tour was set to take place early the first week, but was delayed due to consistent snow. After a week of freeskiing the resort, the comp went down and did not disappoint. Huge airs and burly lines were thrown down on ‘Mac Daddy’ face, and it was the smooth, fluid lines that came out on top.
After the competition, we fueled the sleds and explored the endless terrain surrounding Revy. We met up with a few locals and friends, and got after it while the conditions were prime. A huge wind event took place upon the skies breaking blue, leaving the alpine scoured or loaded. However, the tree/pillow skiing remained all time.
The wind spell did not last long, and soon enough the skies were puking powder once again. Rogers Pass was our calling for a solid week of touring. Rogers is a unique area, sketchy and rewarding. Around every corner is another corner, and another, full of chutes, faces, pillows, and glaciers. It was mind-blowing to become more familiar with the terrain and see the potential the Pass holds.
We were extremely fortunate to spend time with such amazing people in Revelstoke and to be able to explore and ski such sick terrain. There were countless ‘zones’ added to the check list for next year.
Hope you enjoy our second episode, and hope you get REVELSTUCK!
