Revelstoke Mountain Resort Building 11-Acre Terrain Park

Revelstoke terrain park

The Terrain Park’s location on Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s upper mountain.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is excited to announce the addition of an 11-acre terrain park for the 2015-16 season. Work is already underway clearing the park area which will run directly under the Stoke Chair.

When complete, the park will be nearly 450 metres long and 100 metres wide. Including more than 20 jib features, the park will also have a range of jumps that will be expanded throughout the season.

After getting great response to a ‘teaser park’ built last spring, Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s Vice President Peter Nielsen said this is the highly-anticipated next step.

“Our guests have been asking for a terrain park for quite some time, so we are really thrilled to have the resources and team in place to build a full-size progression park,” Nielsen explained.

“We are designing the park to appeal to a wide range of ages and abilities, and I think it is going to be a great addition to our winter offerings.”

Along with expanding the legendary groomed runs Revelstoke is known for, the Resort has also invested in increasing the existing grooming fleet to enable maintenance standards necessary for a high quality terrain park.

The Terrain Park is scheduled to open this winter.

Spending the Day Heli Biking Mt. Cartier

Words: Devin Knopf
Photos: Ian Houghton

Any day that includes a 7,000ft. (straight) descent on a mountain bike is going to be a good one.

Throw in a rad group of guys and a helicopter ride to get you to the top and it’s going to be amazing.

Visible from pretty much anywhere in town, Mt. Cartier looms in the distance enticing adventurers to come explore, and since moving to Revelstoke last fall, the mountain had been beckoning me. So, when Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing announced they would be offering guided heli tours to the Cartier trail starting this summer, I knew I needed to be on the first flight and I knew who I needed to invite. Lachlan Sillitoe is an Australian living in Kamloops, he loves riding in Revelstoke and since he had never been in a helicopter before, I knew he’d be stoked.

Dropping off the second group on the ridge of Mt. Cartier

The trail up Mt. Cartier was originally built around 1920 to access a forestry lookout at the top of the mountain. Since those days, Cartier has evolved into a trail that has attracted many hikers, and in recent years, dedicated mountain bikers willing to spend eight hours pushing their bikes up the gruelling incline for the downhill reward. I would have eventually sucked it up and gone the hike-a-bike route, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was stoked when the heli-option presented itself.

The best way to start a day that will be dropping 7,000 feet over an 18km trail is with a lot of bacon and lucky for us Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s Revelation Lodge was happy to oblige. We joined the rest of our crew for a breakfast buffet and some great views to get us fuelled and amped for the day, before meeting our guides and pilot at the base of the gondola.

The final approach to Mt. Cartier

No one in our crew had been on a heli mountain bike tour before and Lachlan was going up in a heli for the first time, so the collective stoke levels were high. Minds were unanimously blown as our heli took flight across the valley before reaching our final landing point exposing the amazing views of the surrounding mountain ranges. With the clear view of what seemed like mountains all the way to the East and West borders of B.C., it was clear why this spot was chosen as a fire lookout.

Dropping off the bike rack on Mt. Cartier

We quickly scrambled to the summit to get the best views possible (and add a few 100 more ft. to our final descent) and check out the still standing fire lookout. I’m very scared of heights but the small hike was just fine for me. Revelstoke is right in between the Selkirk and Monashee mountain ranges and from that vantage point you can take in all its beauty.

Scrambling to Mt. Cartier’s summit

Once geared back up again, we headed down the trail. Since the trail was initially built as a hiking trail, you definitely need to be an advanced mountain biker to enjoy its full potential, but if you have the skills to navigate it, you are rewarded by breathtaking views and high alpine singletrack.

Enjoying pure alpine singletrack

Trying to stay on the trail is not easy, but that’s just because you are constantly stopping to check out the ever changing view.

Long benched straights in the alpine

Further down the trail, the alpine singletrack gives way to an amazing ridge line, with Cartier peak bearing down on you and Revelstoke Mountain Resort as the foreground. Our mate Lachlan did some freeriding and found a really cool steep drop in, pretty safe to say that no one had ever done it before!

Freeriding on Mt. Cartier’s rocky ridgeline

The singletrack was amazing. Considering the long life of this trail and the hiking history, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot, but with over 100 hours of work on the trail to get it ready for tours, it’s safe to say it was running perfectly. You could really get your speed up and there were even a few good lips to launch yourself off.

High speed singletrack through alpine meadows

After a pit stop at the midpoint cabin, the singletrack was back on. There are a few small pedalling sections, but anyone would be happy bringing a downhill bike or an all mountain bike. My only recommendation would be to bring what the rest of the crew has – If your buddies are all on downhill bikes, bring your downhill bike and vice versa.

Taking a pit stop and enjoying a packed lunch at a lovely creek

Crossing the creek before the last climb and descent

The singletrack never gave up and was uninterrupted the whole way down to our shuttle, and I couldn’t have been happier to get delivered right back to the Revelstoke Mountain Resort Village where a well-deserved Begbie pint was waiting!

Heli Hiking Ghost Peak

Heli Adventures with Selkirk Tangiers are available from July 3 – September 7. Join Liz Craig (Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Media Relations) on a preview flight to the alpine basin below Ghost Peak.

Looking down from the helicopter at the valley below, it is hard not to be blown away by the beauty that surrounds the town of Revelstoke; the meandering Columbia River, the lush green of the flats, and the wall of surrounding mountains.

The Columbia River Valley

Revelstoke’s Columbia River valley

This is the first time that I’ve ever flown in a helicopter, so I’m having a hard time not grinning from ear-to-ear.

A group of us are heading into the alpine for a sneak peek of the new summer heli adventure products that we are launching this summer in partnership with Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing.

As we make a sharp turn and start climbing higher into the mountains, my jaw drops even further, and by the time the helicopter touches down and leaves us high in the remote alpine, I am beyond excited to explore this remarkable expanse.

Revelstoke alpine wildflowers

The wild flowers are just starting to bloom and are poking out in little bursts of colour amongst the spongey moss and lichen adding to the overall beauty.

Once the rest of the group has been shuttled in, we set off on our half-day hike.

I have to force myself to focus on the ground in front of me to avoid spraining my ankle while I ogle the jagged peaks that surround us.

After nearly an hour of hiking, we follow our guide down an embankment and come out at a stunning azure blue alpine lake where we take a moment to sit and take it all in while simultaneously devouring a tasty lunch.

Fueled by our quinoa chicken wraps and freshly baked cookies, we are ready to continue our climb. A quick ascent brought us around to two more lakes nestled below the impressive Ghost Peak.

One last scramble and we are at yet another fabulous vantage point where we relax and snap a few last shots before our helicopter arrives to whisk us back to reality.

Back at my desk, I’m already reliving the magic of the day and I’m ready to go again… only this time I think I need to do the full day hike!

Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing Launch Summer Heli Activities

Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Selkirk TangiersRevelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR) and Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing (STHS) are excited to announce a brand new program of heli-accessed summer adventures in the spectacular Selkirk Mountains.

Revelstoke Mountain, Selkirk Tangiers, heli hiking, mountain bikingThe line-up being offered for the inaugural summer of heli activities will include: helicopter sightseeing flights, heli hiking, heli-assisted alpine picnics, heli mountaineering, heli glacier trekking, and select heli-accessed mountain bike options.

The summer adventures will all take flight from the heli pad conveniently located at the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort, just steps from The Sutton Place Hotel, and will be operated by Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing.

Jeff Honig, Operations Manager at Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing, said they are thrilled by the opportunity to introduce new and existing guests to over 50,000 acres of remarkable terrain this summer.

“While this is new territory for us as a business, it’s a familiar playing field in terms of taking guests into the mountains via helicopter,” he explained.

“I’m certain that guests are going to be blown away by the stunning alpine scenery, and we are looking forward to playing in the Selkirk peaks in warmer temperatures than we’re used to!”

Selkirk Tangiers, Revelstoke MountainAs one of the original heli-skiing operations in the Revelstoke area, Selkirk Tangiers has been offering highly successful winter programs since 1978. The recent approval of the summer tenure application from the British Columbia Ministry of Forest, Land & Natural Resources makes this exciting next step possible.

The season is scheduled to run from July 3rd until September 7th. A full list of offerings is available at www.revelstokemountainresort.com.

RED BULL COLD RUSH POSTPONED UNTIL MARCH 23-26 DUE TO CURRENT BACKCOUNTRY CONDITIONS

Due to unstable conditions in the backcountry, Red Bull Cold Rush will be postponed until March 23-26 when it will make its Revelstoke Mountain Resort debut.

With safety as the major priority, the decision was made by event organizers to delay the contest.

“Recent warming has impacted our venues in remote areas of the mountain over the last few days. Safety for athletes and delivering a premium, progressive ski contest are our ultimate goals for Red Bull Cold Rush. Unfortunately, current conditions will not allow for either.”  –  Scott Jewett, National Event Manager for Red Bull Canada

As a world class ski event that showcases athletes in some of the most challenging natural backcountry terrain, the contest is ultimately at the mercy of nature and unseasonably warm temperatures have made current conditions less than ideal outside of the resort’s boundaries.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is excited to welcome the athletes and the event to their mountain later in the season and are looking forward to an awesome event! See you in March Red Bull Cold Rush!

In the meantime, join us at Revelstoke Mountain Resort for epic skiing, amazing terrain, and the most snow in Canada! We are definitely still open (and you won’t regret experiencing the most vertical in North America)!

Girls Do Ski – Start the Year with an Epic Adventure

Calling all ladies! Ready to start the year with an epic adventure? Join Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing for an amazing weekend full of powder, laughter, and memories that will leave you wanting more. Don’t miss out on the best winter camp you could ever wish for.


Girls Do Ski

Written by Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing

There’s this feeling that goes hand in hand with the experience of enjoying a favourite pastime with a group of friends – it’s a pretty amazing combination of freedom and joy. But when that group of friends consists of all guys or all gals, it transforms into something truly special. The term ‘let loose’ sums it up pretty well. There’s a feeling that you can do anything and push the limits of what you thought was possible just by being part of a group of like-minded individuals. We LOVE this feeling. So much so that we’ve teamed up with Girls Do Ski again this winter to bring back one of our favourite events of the season, our Girls Do Ski heli-ski weekend.

We got in touch with Katie Marti, Media Relations at Girls Do Ski, to hear her thoughts on this event: “Heli-skiing is the ultimate freeski adventure, so, naturally, this is one of our most anticipated camps of the season. All of our guests have skied resorts before and some have even toured around in the backcountry, but very few have had the opportunity to spend a day heli-skiing – much less with an entire crew of super supportive, incredible women. It’s bucket list material. This year, we’ve also added an extra day to the program, so that guests have a chance to acclimatize and do a bit of on-mountain prep at Revelstoke Mountain Resort before heading out in the heli with Selkirk Tangiers on Day Two. We’re stoked because we truly believe the full weekend experience will allow ladies more time to connect with our coaches and will leave everyone feeling confident and enthusiastic for the season ahead.”

Meghan Tabor from Revelstoke Tourism recounted her experiences from last season in her blogpost, and summed it up best: “…What I’ll never forget is the smiles on those Girls Day Out campers after conquering their heli-day. Exhaustion began to set in, but spirits remained high right up until the very last turn. As the chopper lowered us back down into the clouds, thoughts were on Mt. Begbie brew and après – to relive the moments that will inevitably last for a lifetime. I know it’s a day I’ll never forget.”

Watch the video from last year’s winter camp to get a taste of what it’s all about.

We’re flying with this package on January 10 & 11, 2015, with Saturday January 10 happening on the slopes of Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Sunday January 11 heading into the hills with our STHS Bell 205 helicopter.

THE BIG MOUNTAIN RUSH IS BACK BRINGING THE BEST IN FREESKI ACTION TO REVELSTOKE Mountain Resort

ColdRush_Logo-edited

After a two year hiatus, the biggest event in backcountry freeskiing returns to its roots. Fusing the disciplines of backcountry slopestyle, big mountain, cliffs and alpine ski touring, Red Bull Cold Rush will return to Canada from February 3-6 at Revelstoke Mountain Resort in British Columbia. The Red Bull Signature Series event will see a handful of the world’s premier skiers invited to battle it out for a chunk of the $36,000 prize purse awarded to the most versatile, well-rounded freeskiers.

The return of Red Bull Cold Rush means a blend of fresh powder and fresh ideas. Along with the new location in Revelstoke, the event is also being updated with fresh elements including innovative on-mountain features and a  competition format that places a greater focus on alpine touring. But one thing remains the same: the peer-judged three-day competition will see athletes pushing one another to raise the bar of backcountry freeski progression.
P-20120217-84660_News (1)
“Red Bull Cold Rush is the one and only top tier event that I, and all the other backcountry skiers, have to express our type of skills in a competition format. The fact that this amazing event is coming back to Canada just gets me all fired up! It’s where I spend my winter doing what we do, so I’ll be right at home this year” says Sean Pettit, professional backcountry freeskier and two-time winner of Red Bull Cold Rush in 2010 and 2011.

HISTORY OF RED BULL COLD RUSH

In an event that pits man against nature, nature always has the upper hand. Born and bred in Canada, the first ever Red Bull Cold Rush was set to take place in 2007 at Red Mountain in Rossland, BC, but Mother Nature had other ideas. Due to warm temperatures and a deep freeze that followed, the terrain was deemed unsafe to ski. When the event returned to the mountain in 2008, it was a skiers’ dream come true. Blue skies and deep snow greeted some of the best freeskiers in the world. Dave Treadway ended up at the top of the podium followed by Sean Pettit in 2nd and the late JP Auclair in 3rd.

In 2009 and 2010, the event moved to Retallack, BC pushing riders further and into new and challenging territory. A year later, Red Bull Cold Rush moved south of the border for the first US event held at Silverton, Colorado where it remained for a second year into 2012.
P-20120306-00109_News (1) REVELSTOKED! THE MOUNTAIN

Even in the powder-heaven that is the BC Interior, Revelstoke was a stand-out destination and obvious choice to play host for the return of Red Bull Cold Rush. Revelstoke Mountain Resort boasts the most vertical in North America at 5,620 ft. of lift accessed terrain, two alpine bowls and legendary glades. The only resort worldwide to offer lift, cat, heli and backcountry access from one village base, it has become a true ski mecca and synonymous with backcountry adventure.

“This is the perfect event for us because it showcases all we have to offer – our diverse terrain, excellent conditions and all the challenging vertical and features they could event want” says Revelstoke Mountain Resort General Manager Rob Elliott.

On average, the mountain’s peak receives roughly 30-45 ft. of the fluffy stuff every year. For those in search of the white room, the high altitude and location in BC’s Interior Selkirk Mountains brings some of the most consistent quality snow in the region.

RMR - Ian Houghton 4PEER PRESSURE: EVENT FORMAT

There’s nothing more important than impressing your friends, and that is exactly what the premier field of 15 men and 5 women will do throughout the peer-judged event as athletes aim to raise the bar of backcountry freestyle progression.  Following each run, competitors will evaluate one another on performance basing scores on style, speed and technique.

Spread across three powder-laden days, the competition focuses on several distinct ski disciplines including backcountry slopestyle, big mountain, cliffs and alpine touring in order to find the best all-around freeskier. Each day of competition will focus on one specific discipline, with a new emphasis on the ski touring component that will see athletes traversing to different areas of the mountain in the shortest possible time. Athletes will now be able to accumulate more points through the touring portion, helping to offset potentially lower scores in other disciplines that might not be their strong suit.

Powder on the Menu — Revelstoke Mountain Resort Opening Weekend

As the snow continues to fall on Mt. Mackenzie, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is preparing to open November 29th amidst excellent early season conditions.

With over 270 cm of snow already, and a further 30-40 cm forecast before opening day, the 2014/15 season will be kicking off with a base of over 115 cm and enough powder to go around.

“Things are looking awesome! With all the new snow we will be opening top to bottom, giving skiers and snowboarders access to all 5620 ft of vertical,” says Mike Verwey, Mountain Operations Manager.

“Looking at the forecast, what is going to make this even better than past opening days is that we are going to have amazing visibility… after all the snow comes down, it is going to clear up and be bluebird for Saturday.”

One hundred per cent of the lifts on the mountain will be operational for the first day of the season, giving skiers and snowboarders access to nearly all of the 3,121 acres of inbound terrain.

With all that untouched powder being served up, Steve Bailey, Director of Skier Services and Base Area Operations says, “be prepared for Saturday to feel like heli-skiing, but for the price of a lift ticket.”

Lifts will start operating at 8:30am on Saturday, with the last ride on the Ripper at 2:30pm and on the Stoke at 3pm.

The Sutton Place Hotel Revelstoke Mountain Resort couldn’t be more excited for the 2014/15 season!
