Riding the white wave @ Revelstoke

While the lower 48 continue to struggle with consistent snowfall, the great white north of Revelstoke, British Columbia continues to serve up the goods.  The past two days of snowfall at Revelstoke Mountain Resort have brought a full reset to the region, and things are shaping up GREAT!

Temperatures have remained just cold enough to get snow all the way to the base, and the upper mountain has been seeing a nightly refresh of cold smoke powder.  While some die hards might not call it the coldest of cold smoke, it’s lighter than just about anything Tahoe saw last winter and perfect for hucking into.

Snow has continued to fall off and on for the past few days, leading to anywhere from 8 inches to 2.5+ feet of snow depending on where you look.  With the relative lack of crowds, there is plenty of fresh snow to be found, even on the last run of the day.

All this new snow accompanies the kick off of the Freeride World Qualifier starting tomorrow, and should lead to quite a show.  Day 1 of the Freeride World Qualifier will be hosted on Separate Reality and the competitors will be stepping their game up for the finals on Day 2 in North Bowl.  With the level of freeriding at an all time high, we are certainly excited to see what this years competitors bring to the table!
