Epic Day at Revelstoke After a Foot New

Powder hounds get ready for an big day at the base of Revelstoke.

A foot of new snow at Revelstoke is a great way to begin a tour of  the “Powder Highway.”

It was the first visit for the SkiZer at the famed resort. Not a bad start — great tree skiing and face shots all morning long as the storm kept dumping.

It was hard to pick out a favorite — every run was exceptional, thanks to “hero snow” as my ski companion Brent Strand termed it. My other ski buddy for the day, Chris Pawlitsky, sniffed out all the best lines, thanks to a lifelong career guiding in the Revelstoke area.

It was a great introduction to Revelstoke. The SkiZer looks forward to a return trip.
