If you like your mountain runs to be big, steep and deep, then Revelstoke is the number one snow destination for you.
Known as Revy to all that visit, this gorgeous town is home to North America’s highest vertical drop at the nearby Revelstoke Mountain Resort, as well as some of the country’s biggest snowfall (up to 15m a year).
Besides the chair lifts, Revelstoke Mountain Resort also has cat-skiing and heli-skiing operating right from the base, so once you’re done carving up the inbound runs, you can easily get out to the backcountry. Driving from downtown to the bottom of the gondola takes only 5 minutes, which means less time travelling between your hotel and the lifts.
The hype on Revy is justified — Many of the best ski and snowboard videos have been filmed here in recent years, and the immense terrain means finding fresh tracks is easy, even on the weekends and holidays.
Do yourself a favour, and make Revelstoke your number one snow destination in Canada.
