Revelstoke has long been synonymous with heli-ski and cat-ski operations; powder hounds from across the globe flooded to Revelstoke attracted by its huge snowfall and long vert. Fortunately for us, Revelstoke Mountain Resort now boasts new lifts and some of the greatest skiing and riding in North America.
Ski Magazine described Revelstoke as 'a current epicenter of heli-and cat skiing and is like a Canadian Jackson, Wyoming, with a funky and historic downtown, big mountains, abundant snow and a friendly population of happily obsessive skiers'.
Given that our Nonstop clients tend to fall into the category of 'happliy obsessive skiers' (and snowboarders) themselves, they tend to fit right in!
Revelstoke lies in the Monashee and Columbia Mountains, surrounded by National Parks, lakes, rivers, glaciers and trees as far as you can see. This is certainly a skier's and snowboarder's mountain playground. Following the success of Revelstoke in our Snow Safaris, we have now added a two week improvement camp so that powder-hounds can enjoy even longer in resort.
Enjoy the downtown which has historic Victorian, Art Moderne, Queen Anne and Dutch Revival buildings that mix in with West Coast architecture on streets backed by Monashee and Selkirk Mountain views. There are funky coffee shops, community festivals such as Timber Days and Winterlude and a really strong feeling of community.
The locals are a mix of timber, construction and railway workers as well as artists, musicians, mountain guides and professionals. All of whom will make you feel really welcome.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort has North America's longest vertical at 1,713 metres. It also boasts 3,121 acres of fantastic terrain including fall line skiing, high alpine bowls, gladed terrain and endless groomers.
It is the only resort world-wide to offer lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing all from the one village base. So for Nonstop clients looking for an epic ski or snowboard adventure, they have come to the right place.
Based at the edge of town, the Best Western Plus is a short trip to downtown Revelstoke and the ski hill. At the end of a long day skiing or riding you will be welcomed back to the modern comfort of the hotel. Then before your day on the mountain you can fuel up with a hearty breakfast before setting off.

We'll be adding Colleen thoughts on Revelstoke here shortly, come back soon!
My gig with Nonstop is probably the best! I sometimes feel guilty for it but I am almost sure nobody hates me for it! I get to jump from one wicked resort to the next while leading my guests through the Snow Safaris. To me, that is why the Nonstop experience is so amazing. Every new hill we arrive at, my job is to show my interim family every sweet spot the mountain is hiding. By the time we have sessioned each lift, it’s time to pack up and explore the next one. One Trick Pony, Kill the Banker, Beer Belly and Easter Bowl are only few favourite runs, come find yours!
