Thinking about maybe heading out to Revvy and not even bothering about work and just focusing on finding a place to live and boarding everyday. It's not going to be like Whistler is it where it's almost impossible to find a place?
and roughly how expensive is food?
If I set myself a budget for $100 a week, not eating out do you think that is realistic? too much too less?

If you come before October (or for Oct.1) it's EASY to find a place, with countless options and various prices. Afterwards it's pretty hard, with barely any to choose from and all pretty expensive.
Food IS expensive... infact, more than Banff and on-par with Whistler. That being said, if you don't eat out or booze it up, you can definitely get by with $100/week.

Snow on the tops of the mountains across Western Canada
Banff hills got 20cm
Almost got my gear sorted
Everyone has high La Nina expectations
A bit more glading done on Mt Mackenzie
Going cat boarding in the Valhallas in January (still need to fill 5 seats... anyone interested?)
Man am I stoked for this year!

Was going to make the trip last year but it turned out to be a surprisingly shite year for snow for the most part. Revy and PowderKing are a go this year though!

Nope, boundary lines have not changed at all.
However there are a few changes...
- a bit more glading done on the Ripper (Powder Monkey I think)
- brushing done on Aspen Glades (basically cutting the alders & long grass down)
- a lift line cut for the new lift (between top of Gondola and Ripper... to facilitate getting to the Ripper). lift might be put in next summer.

thanks for the info Chupa. Revy in my opinion will be the resort we look back at in 20 years and say, "i remember when they only had 3 lifts!" , should be a storied future for the mountain.

Anyone else booked or planning on heading out there this season?

I will be for sure. I didn't get to go last season as anytime I had the time the conditions werent that great.

I'm not so sure about Revi getting very big. I think they are too far from a major city to support getting big like a whistler.

So many runs so little time.
