The storm is beginning to settle at Revelstoke, and with the calm came some welcome sunshine in the morning, a bit of clouds and snow flurries in the afternoon, and quite the sendy kick off of the 4* Freeride World Qualifier Series. That said, the main groomer under the chair was a highlight today, as you could watch skiers and riders from all over the world get a little wild on Separate Reality.

Unfortunately a combination of weather a few crashes didn’t leave enough time to get the women’s snowboarding off, but they will be first to run tomorrow.
The skiing around the rest of the resort is still quite fun as well. Gracias Ridge continued to serve up some fun, deep, and, for those willing to look, untracked snow. Chair line laps weren’t too bumped out and offered some serious leg burners. Temperatures also dropped overnight, leading to some sweet Canadian cold smoke.
Tomorrow will bring a bit of sunshine along with a bit of snow, with more snow to come on Saturday and early next week so stay tuned!
