Luxury Chalets in Revelstoke
For decades Revelstoke has been the exclusive retreat of the elite heli-skiing community. Now it has broadened its appeal. The new Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the only ski resort in the world to offer lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing from one village base. After three superb seasons, the reception it has enjoyed from the skiing community has been without parallel.
The town of Revelstoke is “a current epicenter of heli-and cat skiing and is like a Canadian Jackson, Wyoming, with a funky and historic downtown, big mountains, abundant snow and a friendly population of happily obsessive skiers” – Ski Magazine
Located in the heart of the Monashee and Columbia Mountains and surrounded by National Parks, lakes, rivers, glaciers and trees as far as the eye can see, Revelstoke is Canada’s mountain playground and has some of the finest outdoor activities in N America.
Over the past two decades the city has embarked on an ambitious downtown revitalization program, which has preserved and enhanced some of the community’s outstanding architecture.
