Kicking Horse is the same. They have big plans for that place and if it ever came together it would be amazing. i'm just not convinced that it can happen without a major city nearby to give you the number of riders/skiers required to make a buck.

So many runs so little time.

I am going to stay there from December to April, travelling all the way from Denmark. Already found a place to live, and hoping to get a job though I know it will be difficult. Otherwise I will manage without, but would definitely be funnier to keep some of my savings!

Edit: Also, first post.

Hey guys,

I shall be joining the fun from mid-November through February.
When does the season actually start? On the RMR site it says December, so what am I going to do for two weeks?

Opening day is set for Dec.3
If we get good early snowfall then it will open for a couple days the weekend before (very likely)

Hey

I'm in need of new pants. What waerproofness rating would be ideal for Revelstoke in December-February?
And where would be smart to buy it? I'll be in Vancouver before coming to Revelstoke so should I buy it there or support a local shop in town?

Thanks
Jon

You have to ask Chupa about shops in Revelstoke, but I know that there are plenty of shops in Vancouver. You can ask them what would be appropriate with padding, they would know better than the most.

10,000 / 10,000 will be good. Anything more is ok, but not necessary. It's very dry compared to the coastal mountains, but not quite as dry as the eastern rockies.
Like m_jel said, bigger selection and probably a bit cheaper prices out in van. It's always nice to be able to support local shops and there are a couple good shops here in town. Check out Society snow and skate downtown.
