Revelstoke Mountain Resort Backcountry Skiing

Recently was contracted out by the Revelstoke Mountain Resort to guide a day of backcountry touring off the hill. It had been a few years since i explored the resort and i will admit what i had stuck in my head was that it with out question was no match to the Mighty Whistler. But after 2 excellent lattes and a couple croissants at the conveniently located coffee shop at the foot of the lifts i was starting to believe this might just be a more frequent destination for me.
Off the Gondola you glide past limitless ski options that with out question would fulfill years!! Our gang of 9 skiers from Quebec plus 2 other guides – Angus Willson and Pete Murry we managed to bag 3 excellent high alpine runs. Absolutely a stellar day. Finished up with a few stellar pints back at the hill base. Seriously worth a visit.
