It’s no secret that B.C. hasn’t had the best luck with snow this year. Pickings have been slim, with snow levels below average throughout the province. However, you can’t take away terrain, and with that in mind,  one of Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s greatest assets is the terrain.

Fortunately, we got to RMR as the past week refreshed the snowpack. Forty-four cms fell the past week. Three cms fell on our first day. Eight cms on the second day fell, with the skies cracking to give us visibility. Only two cms were new on our third, but the lift’s slackcountry access gave us ample fresh lines.

Image Lee Lau:  RMR’s groomers are underrated. A little over 1700m vertical to burn and not a lot of skiers (at least compared to our home mountain at Whistler) gives you a lot of room to pick up speed
