  • Fitness & Ability

    In order to go Cat Skiing with Revelstoke Mountain Resort you must be able to ski strong parallel turns on easy black runs.

    It is important to have good cardiovascular fitness in order to enjoy the demands of playing in our snow. We recommend that you engage in some kind of exercise program for eight to ten weeks prior to your ski trip. The fitter you are, the better you will be able to overcome any skiing challenges and avoid injuries.

    Several full days of lift-serviced skiing or snowboarding combined with powder skiing lessons are a great way to get ready for your trip, particularly if you can try some gladed runs and powder. We recommend that you use a pair of our high performance skis and boards suitable for the snow conditions.

    You may also be interested in a Cat/Heli Prep lesson to help ensure that you are ready for every run.

  • Backcountry Safety

    Our certified Guides and Assistant Ski Guides have been guiding in the terrain now known as Revelstoke Mountain Resort since the early 1980s.

    Together with the Avalanche Forecasting Professionals and Pro Patrol Team at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, our Guides evaluate the snowpack, on-going weather patterns and terrain on a daily basis. The majority of our Cat Skiing terrain is gladed with open meadows. Exposed terrain is avoided when high avalanche hazards are present.

    Additional steps taken each day include safety briefings, beacon demonstrations, distribution of an avalanche beacon for each guest, training on how to use additional backcountry equipment, and continuous communication between guides and guests throughout the day about the terrain and hazards around them.
