It may be hard to believe, but not everyone in the world excels at skiing and snowboarding. A well timed fall on a hard icy surface can be enough to send even the most enthusiastic learner packing – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other fun snow activities to pursue!
If you’re heading up to The Sutton Place Hotel Revelstoke Mountain Resort this season, and skiing or snowboarding is not your forte, or you simply want to enjoy some family fun, then there is a new park that may pique your interest.
Specially designed to offer users the most thrilling tubing experience available, Turtle Creek Beginner Area & Tube Park features three lanes of snow tubing heaven chock-full of slopes, plateaus, and fast riding fun. The park is family-friendly, yet provides an exciting sliding experience that rivals even the best hillside fun. Open both day and night, it’s the ideal spot for a little pre and post dinner snow amusement.
A Convenient Lift Too!
Another perk to the park is its ease of access. Built with functionality in mind, tubers can ride all the way down to the new Magic Carpet lift, and get easy access to their next tube run – saving on the mountain climbing and allowing for more downhill fun time.
The new 175m Magic Carpet lift sits adjacent to the Revelation Gondola line, from the village station, making it the perfect blend of convenience and location for those staying in the village.
A Little Practice Goes a Long Way
However, if you want to give skiing and snowboarding a second go, then we highly recommend Turtle Creek’s Beginner Area. Not just an average hill, the Beginner Area was designed specifically to enhance the different learning phases of a new skier or snowboarder.
Using a ‘progressive pitch,’ the slope features 5%, 10%, and 15% pitch variances that allow learners to gradually increase their difficulty levels as they advance their skills. In addition, the area is less than 50 steps away from the snow school at the Revelstoke Outdoors Centre, making expert guidance just a slide away.
No matter your favourite snow sport, you’ll always find a wealth of activities to do at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. With inches of snow already, the season is proving to be most promising indeed, which is why The Sutton Place Hotel Revelstoke Mountain Resort has exclusive (family) packages for the season. After all, if there’s one thing that skiers, snowboarders, tubers and sliders have in common, it’s the desire to bundle up by a luxuriously cozy room with a delicious hot beverage in hand after a long day spent in the snow.
