Level Up: 4 Ways To Progress Your Skiing or Riding

December 31 2020

At this point, we’re sure you’ve caught word of Revelstoke’s bottomless powder, wide-open bowls and steep groomers – and, well, the rumours aren’t wrong. But what makes Revelstoke appealing, can also be what makes it daunting. Whether you’re a seasoned RMR local, or experiencing our mountain for the first time, here are four steps you can take to level up your skiing or snowboarding game, to contend with Revelstoke's famous steep, deep terrain.

Level 1

Sign Up for First Tracks

P: Josh Dooley | A: Jesse Millen

Although we try our best, it’s not always possible for us to know whether mother nature will be cooking up a storm or serving up sunshine and cord. What we can guarantee, though, is that with our First Tracks and First Tracks Breakfast Club programs, you’ll be carving fresh tracks down whatever she churns out. You will have the opportunity to rip down groomers (and in the glades, where possible) before the lifts open to the public. Whether you’re into navigating technical glades or flying full speed down freshly groomed runs, you’ll be led into the best zones of that morning by one of our seasoned Pros. 

Level 2

Own A Pro & Be Shown The Best Inbounds Terrain

P: Hywel Williams | A: Johan Rosen

Not your regular “line up and listen” lesson, our Own a Pro program is specifically tailored to guide private, small groups of riders through some of the best off-the-beaten-path terrain on the mountain. Work on your technique and get to know the mountain in the morning, and continue developing your skills in the afternoon. Conditions and ability permitting, your personal Pro guide will show you how to pick a line through the trees and conserve energy while making turns that adapt to the terrain. You'll gain a better understanding of how to make the most of every run, to ensure that you are well prepared for your Cat or Heli-skiing experience (or future plans to go). 

Level 3

Go Cat Skiing

P: Tom Poole

It’s time to take the skills you’ve learned on the Resort out into the wilderness. Picture “First Tracks”, but this time, imagine 50 ft of annual snowfall, spread across two mountains, with 75 square kilometers of skiable terrain. Mouth-watering, right? The best part about your cat skiing experience is that you can forget about watching the clock or counting runs; you, your crew and your guide will be skiing until your legs give in and will be setting the pace for your own adventure. There’s still space for day Cat excursions this season, so make sure to book your spot before it’s too late!

Level 4

Go Heli Skiing

P: Daniel Stewart

You’ve reached the crème de la crème of powder. If you’ve made it this far through our suggested progression route, you’re probably ready to take your skiing/riding to new heights (quite literally). Get deep into the 500,000+ acres of wide-open glaciers, alpine meadows and massive old-growth forest that Selkirk Tangiers has to offer. Picture getting first tracks down North Bowl on a powder day, then imagine doing that over and over again. Not only will you have the opportunity to progress your powder riding, but you’ll also experience big mountain terrain and ride steep lines all within a managed environment with certified guides. There’s still time to play in the powder playground of the Selkirk mountains this season—visit selkirk-tangiers.com to find the best deals.
