Default Revelstoke 2009 trip

do yourself a favour and book a trip to Revelstoke. Me and 8 of my buddies went out there this past March 2009. The snow was bonkers, terrain was huge and room for error whilst in glades, small
for real, if you're looking for pow, willing to hike for some turns and love bombing glades this place should be in your list of things to do

i'm planning on heading out there next winter with a couple buddies because i've only heard good things about revy. They were a little skeptical, but i just showed them these pictures, and they completely changed their minds and are stoked now

haha, yea, thats what i think everytime i see anything about revy. I wanted to go this last year but it was cheaper for the guys i was with to hit up fernie instead. Now they've got all summer to save up because they know we're going, so we'll get there before it gets too crazy haha

Revy is far enough off the beaten path it'll never be a junk show like Whistler. It's nice for resorts to be your own private little playground, but they also go out of business quickly if they do. The place does look amazing and the expansion plans are aggressive to say the least. Thanks for the pics.

Yup... it's those rich euro gapers who ski only because they can who ultimately pay the rent. I personally do not like to hike, so in order to keep the lifts running, It's a good idea to get over yourselves and share the hill with everybody.

hey, whats a good place to stay for cheap? I'm already looking into SameSun hostel and Sandman Inn, but I'm open to any other suggestions as I'm only checking out some places that came up in a simple google search
