Report from December 10th, 2019

On Tuesday, we zipped 5,620-vertical-feet up Revelstoke Mountain Resort, BC and ripped a few groomers in the morning.

The runs here are long, steep, and very fast right now.

There must be 10 roll-overs per run making for a wildly fun, repeatedly weightless experience.

After getting some high-speed thrills, we dip into the backcountry for a run.

The untouched snow is still immaculate here at Revelstoke due to cold temps, low winds, and very little sunlight this time of year.

The snow on every aspect is great.

We dropped it, jumped around on mini-pillows, slashed snow in the trees down low, then hopped from log to log down low.

The coverage down low is still thin making all the downed logs spicy, techy, & kinda fun.

Back to the resort for some sunset laps off the Stoke Chair.

The light was special: sharp, high-angle, intoxicating.

We cranked lap after lap on the Stoke but ended up finding our favorite inbounds run down below the stoke.

A tree-cut run with low amplitude bumps and chalky snow got us all fired up on the way down.

Ripping that 5,620-vertical-foot run at the end of the day is most certainly a thriller.

There just isn’t much better than Revelstoke in December.
