SKIING

Revelstoke, British Columbia has historically been the heliski epi-centre of the world, ever since Hans Gmoser founded Canadian Mountain Holidays and lifted heliskiing into the ski psyche of millions of yearning participants.  Now Revelstoke is fast becoming internationally recognized as a resort skiing mecca with its deep powder snow, epic terrain, world class resort, numerous renowned heliski and catski operations and endless backcountry skiing.

Located just steps above the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR), Bison Lodge the stepping off point to the only place worldwide that offers lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing from one village base.

HELI /CAT SKIING

British Columbia is the epi-centre of heliskiing and Revelstoke is its hub.  Nestled between the majestic Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges, blanketed with 50 feet of powder snow annually, it’s no wonder heli and cat operators have chosen ‘Revy’ as their home base.

Take it to the next level and let us book your heli ski adventure with one of our recognized partners.  Pull on your boots as your private helicopter and guide arrive to sweep you away to some of the world’s most talked about ski terrain, just minutes from our boot room.
