Beautiful morning vistas from the top of the Stoke chair

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.

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.

Current Revelstoke forecast

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!
