Frequently Asked Questions
- Will the Pipe Mountain Coaster be open this summer?
We fully intend to open all of the Resort activities this summer and we will make every effort to do so. We are currently working towards a tentativ opening date of June 26th, 2020. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram or sign up for our email newsletter for the most up-to-date information.
- What are you doing to ensure the health and safety of guests in light of Covid-19?
The health and safety of our guests and team members is our highest priority. We want you to enjoy everything the mountain has to offer with absolute confidence so we developed Revelstoke Mountain Resort PureClean to elevate our existing hygiene and cleanliness procedures. We've have made several adjustments to our operating procedures including thoroughly cleaning gondola cabins and pipe carts after each use. For more information please click here ≫.
- If I buy a ticket online, can I pre-book a ride time?
No, you cannot make reservations for a specific time. The Pipe is operated on a first-come first-served basis. We can't reserve times because everyone travels at a different speed on The Pipe. If you are planning on visiting on a weekend or during summer holidays we recommend arriving as early as possible in case it is busy.
- I bought tickets online, how do I receive/collect them?
You will need to collect them from the Guest Services office in the Village Plaza. Make sure to present your order confirmation document along with some photo ID to collect them.
- Are my tickets refundable?
We can offer a rain check or a refund if The Pipe is closed due to inclement weather. Other than this, tickets are non-refundable.
- How will I know it's my turn to ride The Pipe?
Whether you've purchased your tickets online, or are purchasing tickets the day-of, you need to head to the base of the gondola with your tickets when you arrive at the Resort. A Pipe crew member there will give you a loading number. The numbers being called to ride will be displayed on TV screens around the Resort and on our website.
- How do I know if there is a wait time?
Live updates on wait times are listed on the TV monitors located throughout the resort and on our website.
- What is the minimum age to ride The Pipe?
Children 3 years old and up (who are 3'2" or taller) can ride the Pipe with a driver who is 16 or over, provided the passenger is no taller than the driver's shoulders when seated. Children who are 8 and over (and at least 4'2" tall) can ride alone.
- Are there other restrictions?
The total weight in each cart can't exceed 260lbs. The Pipe isn't recommended for people with existing neck or back injuries, or people who don't have the dexterity or grip strength to operate the brake. It is also not recommended for pregnant women as the seat belt is secured tightly across the hips. There is no upper height limit for single riders.
- Do I need any special equipment or clothing to ride The Pipe?
No special clothing or footwear is required to ride The Pipe. You might want to leave backpacks and baseball caps behind though!
- Can I take my camera?
If your camera has a mount that can be attached to you, then yes! Handheld devices such as cameras and cell phones are not permitted as both hands are needed to operate the cart.
- Do you offer discounted rates for large groups?
Yes, if you have a group of 10 or more people we do offer discounted tickets, please get in touch with our Sales Team at [email protected]
- Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are not permitted in the gondola and cannot join you on the Pipe Mountain Coaster. Your furry friends are more than welcome if supervised and on a leash in the Village Plaza at the base of the gondola.
