We arrived in Revelstoke, BC last on Saturday night after our last day at Sol Mountain Lodge.
Revy put us up right at the bottom of the mountain (thanks, Revy!) and the sunrise from our window on Sunday morning was a gorgeous display of rugged, alpenglow-ed, Monashee mountains.
Revy has seen 117″ of snow this season already and 27″ of snow in the past 7-days.
We started the day ripping groomers off the Stoke chair.
The groomers were immaculate.
Perfectly buffed out, smooth, fast, predictable, fun.
The weather was foggy but with decent visibility most of the time.
After a handful of screamin’ groomers, we decided to slip into the legendary Revelstoke backcountry.
We cruised out and dropped into a dream world.
The terrain is simply stunning here.
Huge cliff-lined couloirs, sky-scrapping peaks, trees shooting out of seemingly impossible locations, big walls, and pillows everywhere…
We took out time, discussed every scenario we could think of, then relished good powder on stellar terrain.
We took it our line deep and down.
So far down we ended up in the Giant Cedar trees.
The Giant Cedar trees are exquisite and you can feel their life and age flowing out of them.
We climbed up the Giant Cedars into the pines, into the Alpine, and back into Revelstoke Mountain Resort.
We were then treated to a 5,000+ vertical-foot run (the longest vertical drop in North America) back down to the base and back into our hotel room.
