Mountain Guide By Ability
Revelstoke Mountain Resort might be renowned for its Big Mountain Terrain, but that doesn't mean you have to be an expert to ski here. Take a look at our Mountain Guide by Ability below to find your perfect match.
Learn and develop the basic skills you'll need to get around the mountain in these beginner friendly zones.
Magic Carpets & Learning Areas
A wide and easily accessed beginner slope with a 175m Magic Carpet. Located at the Village Base beside the Revelation Gondola.
A gradual groomed slope serviced by a Magic Carpet located mid-mountain. Accessed via the lower Revelation Gondola (exit at mid-station).
From Revelation Lodge
After you have mastered your turns in our learning areas, the lower mountain runs from Revelation Lodge are great for your skill progression. The easiest runs down are Tickle Trunk and the Last Spike, both of which are wide with gentle gradients. For adventurous beginners, Tumbelina is slightly more challenging, but remains wide and is a very skiable run if you take your time.
From Top of Revelation Gondola & Stellar Chair
When you are ready to venture beyond the lower mountain runs, ride to the top of the Revelation Gondola and make your way to our new Stellar Chair. Turn your way down Big Bend or Over Easy before progressing to the two blue runs in this zone, Boondocker or Practically Pro.
From here to the bottom is 1,170 vertical metres. If your legs still have the strength, ski down via The Last Spike, Feller Buncher or Wooley Bully which are very wide and include some fun rollers to improve your speed control and turning skills. If at any point the run becomes too steep you can cut back to the Last Spike; which weaves its way down the entire mountain.
First Timer Discovery Package
Have one of our professional snow school instructors teach you the ropes. We offer a First Timer Discovery Package for the first-time skier or snowboarder which includes a beginner area lift pass, equipment rentals and a two and a half hour lesson. Participants will receive a lift ticket valid for the beginner's area. Once the two hour lesson is complete, an upgrade to a full mountain ticket is available for $20 at Guest Services.More Info
Over 43% of the Resort is intermediate friendly so you're bound to find terrain to keep you smiling from ear to ear all day long.
Ease Into It
Warm up your legs on some more mellow terrain with the blue runs off of Stellar Chair and Ripper Chair. Blow Down to Burn Down to the skiers left of Ripper Chair or Chopper are good intermediate introductions to Revelstoke Mountain Resort for both skiers and snowboarders.
Ready For More
The blue runs from the top of the Revelation Gondola down to mid-station are wide with a steeper grade, giving intermediate skiers and riders the perfect terrain to work on speed control and turning. Try Feller Buncher, Wooley Bulley and Snow Rodeo - Mid to see if you're ready to step up to the black runs. Critical Path from the Stoke Chair is also a great option.
If you think you're up for a challenge, head up the Stoke Chair and check out Snow Rodeo - Upper, Pitch Black - Upper and Devil's Club - Upper. These runs are steep and speedy and as long as they're groomed (check the grooming report here) they're nothing a strong intermediate skier can't handle.
Explore the Big Mountain Terrain that Revelstoke is famous for.
The most easily accessed and favoured spot for many locals and visitors alike is Separate Reality. You can find it directly to the left when getting off of the Stoke Chair and you'll often see a crowd of people waiting for Patrol to drop the rope to access it. North Bowl, Greely Bowl and Three Bears can also be accessed with a traverse in the same direction, dropping in via Drop In, Sweet Spot or Meet The Neighbours. In the opposite direction off the Stoke Chair, South Bowl gets the afternoon sunshine and feeds into some epic runs, Jalepeno and Hot Sauce.
Glades Of Glory
Revelstoke Mountain Resort has plenty of perfectly spaced tree runs for all you glade hunters out there. Check out Back 40 Glades or Glades of Glory off of the Ripper Chair or Clyde's Secret Glades or Tally Ho Glades off of the Stoke Chair.
Get To Steppin'
If you don't mind a little hiking, take a walk down Lemming Line which pops you into North Bowl or take nature's stairmaster up to Subpeak, from there you can drop into North or South Bowl. Both "trail heads" are found from the top of the Stoke Chair.
