About Revelstoke


The name truly says it all: Revel (a verb: meaning, to take great pleasure) + Stoke (a verb: meaning, to feel real excitement) = Revelstoke. With a name like that, how could you go wrong? Become a ski or snowboard instructor in Revelstoke!


For decades, powder hounds from around the world have flocked to Revelstoke, BC, attracted by its perfect snow, varied alpine terrain and quaint mountain community. Since opening in 2007, Revelstoke has offered the most vertical in North America at 1,713 meters (5,620 ft). The Resort is home to 3,121 acres of lift-accessed terrain featuring amazing fall line skiing, 4 high alpine bowls, legendary glades, and fast and fun groomers.  The mountain, while best known for its expert terrain also offers plenty of progressive zones ideal for learning.
