With the winter season approaching quickly, the Sutton Place Hotel Revelstoke Mountain Resort is giddy with anticipation over the flurry of activities lined up for the snowy season. From world-class competitions to exciting camps and retreats, skiers and snowboarders are sure to find their fill at RMR in 2013.
The Return of the Freeride World Tour in 2013
January 7 – 12
As one of the world’s biggest ski and snowboard events, the Swatch Freeride World Tour is guaranteed to showcase some of the best winter athletes in the world.
Even better, for 2013, the Swatch Freeride World Tour is joining forces with The North Face Masters of Snowboarding, to create the new “Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face.”
The tour has an exclusive tour circuit (only 6 resorts in the world have been selected to participate), with Revelstoke Mountain Resort standing as the only Canadian resort to host the event in 2013. Revelstoke Mountain Resort was also the proud host for last year’s 5-star championship event, and received high praise from organizers and athletes alike. Famed skier Drew Tabke said of the venue:
“The best event last year was the combined event at Revelstoke. This event represented the ideal outcome of this merger of the two tours – a legitimate representation of the world’s best riders competing on a world-class venue.”
Sure to entice enthusiasts from around the world, there will be so much to see on and off the mountain, so make sure you make your reservations far in advance!
New Heli Ski Camps to Hit the Slopes with Pro Power
If you’ve ever wanted lessons from a pro, then Revelstoke’s New Heli Ski Camps are right up your alley. The Heli Ski Camps have recruited some of the biggest talent in the world, including professional Salomon athletes Chris Rubens and Leah Evans. The two skilled experts will provide an array of specialty programs on the mountain, which they know well from their experiences during the Freeride World Tour – Revelstoke’s signature athletic event.
With many avid skiers jumping to book the camps, the events and their guest coaches are creating a huge interest for the mountain resort – so much so that a second Women’s Retreat has been set up already. Chloë Lanthier, director & owner of the X-Training School and an accomplished world class endurance athlete will spearhead the second Women’s Retreat – which is sure to be a huge hit.
Those seeking a journey unlike any other can also sign up for a specialty excursion with 1994 Canadian Olympic Gold Medallist – Men’s Moguls, Jean Luc Brassard. Brassard will head the 6-day trip at Revelstoke from March 30-April 6, 2013 through Voyages Gendron and will guide students through lift skiing and 3 days of heli skiing with Selkirk Tangiers. It’s guaranteed to be a once in a life time experience with some of the most breathtaking scenery and powder in the world.
