RevelStoke, BC, Canada
RevelSteep - All Mountain Ski Camp
The historical railway town of Revelstoke looks just like western Canadian towns look in the old movies; wooden houses and shops sitting in a deep valley with rugged peaks and forest all around. It's full of people who came for a week and never quite got around to leaving. It’s called being Revelstuck, and it’s easy to see how it happens. In fact, it may even happen to you, so don’t let the boss know you’re coming here!
And how’s the skiing? Well it's bigger, longer steeper and deeper then most places. Snow quality here is famously light and deep, and Revelstoke has the longest vertical of any ski area in North America! 1713 meters, or 5620 feet of serious thigh burning that you can ski on either cruisy blue runs or steep trees, chutes and bumps.
If you can make linked short turns, non-stop, top to bottom here; Section 8 will buy you a pint!
- 4 days of all mountain ski improvement
- 5 days lift pass
- 5 nights accommodation (7 night option available)
This camp is suitable for intermediate to expert level skiers whether your looking to make your first turns off the groomers, prepare yourself for a day of heli-skiing, train for that next level of instructor certification... or push your envelope on Revelstokes steepest and gnarliest.
We'll balance coaching with lots of guided mileage in the vast bowls, bumps, tree runs and chutes that Revelstoke is famous for and if you're up for the ultimate powder experience you'll have the option to add a day of heli-skiing or cat skiing with Selkirk Tangiers.

Getting To Revelstoke
Getting to and from Revelstoke has gotten was easier in the last few years…….. gone are the days of being ‘Revelstuck’ as highway improvements and upgrades to avalanche control systems mean the road stays open reliably.
Travel times by hire car from Vancouver airport to Revelstoke are between 6-7 hours, and from Calgary airport between 4-5 hours.
Alternatively, and possibly even easier, fly to Kelowna and get a resort shuttle with the Stoke Shuttle. Here’s a link to the schedule pages:
