The stories coming out of the north are true, Revelstoke is the place with all the snow! No exaggeration here. The've been hit with over 200" so far this season. Not bad for the second week of January.

Just spent the past few days of our BC road trip in Revy. We must be living a clean life as each Day at Revelstoke Mountain Resort we were treated to 6"-8" of fresh pow. Mix that in with 5600 vertical feet and were talking epic days of riding.
Revelstoke Gondola brings you up most of the mountain. From there hit The Stoke chair to get to the top and North Bowl.
Day One our mountain guide was Professional Freeskier Izzy Lynch. This girl rips and she's fun to be around. RMR is Izzy's backyard and she was kind enough to take us to a few of her haunts in the North Bowl and over on the frontside.

The North Bowl consisted of good steeps, coulees and trees. RMR is the real deal if you wanting a challenging mountain to shred.

Talk about a leg burner try running 5600 vert at the end of the day non stop. The quads were talking 3/4 of the way down, had to stop to regain a little strength to finish it off. Time for a little apre's and dinner at the Rockford Grill in the RMR village. A couple of Powerhouse Pale Ales brews from local brewery Mt Begbie and we were on a way.

Day 2 we were treated to some morning sunshine and and a 6" reset. With only a few hours to ski we were on our own today. First off we skied Jalapeño off the The Stoke chair on the frontside. Light, fluffy and decent pitch. It didn't take long before we ventured off into the trees where we found it to be fairly deep in spots.
As always Tommy Frey making an entrance!

Pretty good morning sesh but by noon we had to be on our way back to the lower 48. What a great resort to wrap up a 10 day road trip. Can't wait to get back!
