BlueVillainI've been to Revy for two months. Mountain is incredible if you don't ski park and the vibe is really sick, everyone is super stoked to be there. Plus you got Roger's Pass to go do backcountry. There is so much incredible terrain to ride there. Would definitely recommend Revelstoke as a destination if you want to ski pow. I could go on and on about this place.
kstanzRevy if you’re going just for the season. If ya thinkin longer term I’d say Nelson
SlunkyYeah originally I was gonna do red but that seems more long term as well
DrailDon't bother coming to Nelson unless you ski tour. The hill is fun, but is tracked by 11am on a pow day and is kind of limited for terrain I'm jaded though, so if it's just for a season and you're new to kootenay style skiing it could worth it. No idea about work here. .
skiP.E.I.I found otherwise, but I did a fair bit of bushwhacking to find the freshies. You will for sure get more out of that area if you tour though. It's unusual to see someone without touring bindings at Whitewater.
skiP.E.I.I prefer whitewater, for me the terrain has most of what is good at Revy, but in a more svelte package with a hilariously old double chair.The food at Whitewater is the bomb too. Nelson is a cool town, but by all accounts it's nigh on impossible to find a place. Whitewater hires the world's most beautiful lift attendants. The park at WW is so negligable it may as well not exist. Kootenay pass, home of some magical backcountry skiing is just up route 3 a fairly short way. It seems to just nuke snow all the time in the Kootenays.
I think it's a bit easier to find shelter in Revy. The mountain holds some incredible terrain. You will find yourself stepping up your game to respond. Bigger sends, steeper mini golf lines. On a clear day, the view alone is worth the lift ride. The park at Revy isn't too extensive, but it's quite good, with fun tree runs on each end.
Both places have world class terrain within an hour's tour.
