Elevation Drunk in Revelstoke

Elevation Drunk in Revelstoke

By Jane Marshall, Freelance

By the end of my weekend at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, I was officially elevation-drunk.

Perhaps it was the massive vertical achieved through six helicopter drops in the 500,000 acres that comprise Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing backcountry terrain; or maybe it was from skiing on North America's longest resort runs.

Either way, my brain struggled to comprehend the gargantuan scale of the mountains.

Day 1: Heli-skiing with Selkirk Tangiers

I extended my avalanche transceiver and worked with my group to find the hidden beacon. We located our target, marked it and began to probe the snow.

Snowcat Back-up! = No down days

Northern Escape Heli-Skiing, with our location in BC's remote Northwest, has long been renowned for providing the deepest, most reliable, snowpack on the planet and, between you and me, all that deep fluffy stuff doesn't fall from blue skies... It Snows up here and it's Deeper up here!

With all that snow comes some inevitability difficult flying conditions. Therefore, NEH is proud to offer snowcat back-up to all of our heliskiing packages. Now, when the snow is falling hard and it's lying deep in the trees, you'll be enjoying some of the finest, deepest, powder skiing/boarding available thanks to our snowcat back up. Ski/board every day of your package – guaranteed!

Our catskiing area was created out of some of our best tree skiing terrain and encompasses over 6,000 acres, that's nearly the size of Whistler and Blackcomb ski areas combined. It offers everything from steep trees to pillows and open bowls with an average run length of over 2,000 vertical feet.

Should the weather clear enough to fly while we are catskiing, the helicopter will simply pick us up and we'll continue our day of deep powder skiing without interruption. Or, if we're heliskiing and the weather starts to turn for the worse, we will meet the snowcats and again continue our day seamlessly enjoying that deep powder. It's the best combination imaginable - Heliskiing/boarding perfected!
