Default TR - Revelstoke, BC

with the southern ontario season coming to a close i've finally had some time to post up some pics. February of this year 7 of my buddies and i went to Revelstoke for a 7 day trip. This was our 2nd visit in the past 3 years and as usual mother nature delivered! Revi is really geared for intermediate to advanced riders with some of the greatest slack country and glades i've ever experienced.

after a gondola ride and short traverse the stoke chair takes you above most of the trees (the sub-peak is hike access)



a view from the top of the stoke chair





looking up to subpeak




first business was a short hike into the north and greely bowls



looking down hill along the hike



looking uphill



looking into the north bowl



looking back at Greely bowl

Looks pretty awesome! A good buddy just got back from Revy and Roger's Pass. He had a blast, that is for sure.

One thing, if you resize your pics to 680x480, they are a lot easier to view on the forum.

Pictures look amazing and I cant wait to ride revi in 2012.

A couple of quick question though if you don't mind?

I'm also located in Southern Ontario and a few friends and I are planning to go to Revi in Feb 2012.
If you don't mind me asking, where did you stay and how or where did you book your trip from?

If you rather PM me thats cool as I don't want to clutter your TR here.

Thanks,
Jay

in brief the logistics getting to Revelstoke are pretty simple

knowledge from our last trip out there pointed us to booking during early/mid february as the snow was primo during that period. (however with La Nina this year almost any week or month during the season was killer!)

I put the word out to my crew late summer that we were going to head back to Revi during that time and told everyone to start saving their pennies.

We independently booked our flights via westjet flying from Toronto to Kelowna. (about $500 each return)
For the 3hrs drive north we booked a chevy express van from National. (worked out to about $100 each, rental and gas incl.)

And with respects to the hotel, we directly booked with RMR to stay at the foot of the mountain in the newly constructed Nelson lodge (top notch 5 star, steps to the gondola from our rooms, not cheap, but worth every penny).

Alternatively, there are several hotel/motels in the town of Revi you can stay at for WAY cheaper (The Sandman, Motel 8, etc.), Only draw back is the 15min drive to the hill each day (and when you've got a crew of 7 to 10 it's not always easy getting everyone up at the crack of dawn after drinking and playing cards into the wee hours of the morning).

Lift ticket wise, going into the fall the resort has deals online. I bought the 6 day pass for the price of 4 days i think (or something like that, saved about $100 overall).

hit me up with other questions if you have them, you'll jog my memory ; )

and here's a little thing i'm working on to wet the appetite (first year "trying" to use a helmet cam)

YouTube - separate reality

Hah, that 'sick drop' is so crappy... it's got a "scooped out" flat landing. Conditions are usually a lot better than how it looks in your pics, but coming from ON I'm sure it was ridiculously amazing :P
Just giving you the gears a bit, but it looks like you had a blast and I'm stoked you enjoyed Revy - it's the best.
