March 24 2015
Enjoy RMR spring skiing like a pro!
The sun is shining and the days are longer and warmer… Spring spells the end of the season in some people’s minds, but if you do it right, spring skiing can be just as much fun as skiing in the heart of winter! We’re open until April 12th this season and we don’t want you to miss a moment of the action. So, we checked in with Pro Team member Leah Evans to get her tips for having an awesome day of late season skiing.

What’s the best thing about spring skiing?
The days are long, so you have time to sleep in, have a great breakfast and stay out enjoying the sun until sunset!
What is your perfect spring skiing day at Revelstoke?
A spring day generally starts out with a couple of people and then snowballs into a big group of people by the end of the day. I generally head up around 10am, get a tasty treat from La Baguette and then make laps on the stoke and generally a sun-pit that’s been created somewhere on the mountain. Just like in the winter, every good day of spring skiing ends with après.
After a day of spring skiing what is your go to apres spot?
In the spring it’s all about the open courtyard between the Rockford and the Mac. It gets the last rays of sun, has lots of seating, good vibes and great bands!
What are your go to runs when the weather gets warm?
Pitch Black, Snow Rodeo.
Any spots you find that wintery conditions tend to persist a little longer?
Anything is north bowl could be hit or miss… with new snow north bowl actually stays cold and generally because of the wind it skis double what’s reported in the snow forecast.
Some people give up on skiing as soon as the temperatures rise. How would you convince them not to?
You don’t know what you’re missing as it’s such a treat to be skiing in warm weather and slow down the pace of your life. The snow quality is great and you get to hang out with your friends.
Any other tips for enjoying spring skiing?
