Winter sports lovers, the time you’ve been patiently waiting for is almost here.
We know you’re already imagining your first turns of the season: The feeling of snow beneath your feet, the fresh mountain air in your lungs, and the rush as you begin your first descent of the winter. You can’t beat it.
This year, take riding to the next level at BC’s ski haven, Revelstoke. The resort is home to North America’s greatest vertical with a descent of 1730 m (5,620 ft.), over 3,000 acres of fall line skiing, high alpine bowls, and endless gladed terrain. Not to mention an average snowfall of 10.5 metres of fresh powder (the dream). Revelstoke is known for its legendary powder and big mountain terrain, with small-town vibes.
Starting January 4, you’ll be able to go from city to slope in just one hour with Pacific Coastal Airlines‘ direct flights from Vancouver to Revelstoke. This is the only flight servicing this route with departures two to three times per week until March 18.
That means you can maximize your time on the slopes by departing Vancouver South Terminal at 12 pm and arriving in Revelstoke at 1 pm — a journey that takes over six hours by car. Plus, you get to skip driving those winter roads.
To mark the start of these flights, we’ve teamed up with Revelstoke Mountain and Tourism Revelstoke to give away a ski trip worth over $2,000. Enter the contest below for your chance to win.
Revelstoke is part of the IKON card which allows you to explore some of the most iconic mountains in North America — including Revelstoke, Ski Big 3, and Cypress Mountain in Western Canada.
Once you arrive, you’ll want to explore the historic downtown and its real ski town vibe (après included). Stop by any of the local bars and restaurants to rub shoulders with the locals and you’ll find out what sets Revelstoke apart from the rest.
Back on the slopes, check out the upgrades to the Ripper Zone this year, including a new blue run named Blow Down, which branches off of the Downtowner through Snorkel Glades. There is also a new warming hut at the top of the Ripper Chair.
Sound good? Enter the contest below for your chance to experience this and more at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Even better, the package includes two high-performance gear rental packages, so you won’t even have to lug your skis or snowboard with you as you travel — which is a major plus.
