#1 in Canada at World Ski Awards
November 23 2016
The 4th annual World Ski Awards ceremony was held at the A-ROSA Kitzbühel, in Austria November 18-20th. This red carpet event aims to recognize and celebrate excellence in ski tourism around the globe.
This year, Revelstoke Mountain Resort was voted Best Canadian Ski Resort. Nominees included Whistler Blackcomb, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, and Mont Tremblant among others. Votes are cast by leading ski tourism professionals, and ski consumers world-wide. The overall winner for the World’s Best Ski Resort went to Val Thorens in France, renowned for being the largest and highest resort in Europe.
Graham Rennie, President of Revelstoke Mountain Resort was there to accept the award at the gala ceremony. “The event was a great way to meet with leading professionals in the industry and experience the rich ski history of Kitzbühel.” Said Rennie. “I was incredibly honoured to accept such a prestigious award that puts Revelstoke Mountain Resort on the map on a more global scale. This award belongs to the dedicated team at the resort who have made us what we are. Without their dedication and efforts none of this would be possible.”
The Bighorn lodge, located at the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort was awarded the World’s best Ski Chalet for the fourth year in a row — beating out other luxury 5 star accommodation destinations such as Deerfield Estate in Park City Utah, San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge in Italy, and Sekka Kan in Japan.
The awards were part of a three-day itinerary of networking opportunities, town tours and guided skiing on the legendary slopes of Hahnenkamm.
