About half way between Vancouver and Calgary, and just off of Highway 1, is the city of Revelstoke, dam of Revelstoke, and ski resort of Revelstoke. They like the name Revelstoke in Revelstoke, and apparently some of them like skiing and snowboarding as well. This resort uses high speed lifts to access a large amount and variety of terrain, making it one of the best advanced ski areas in BC.

The gondola takes you from the village/base area to the beginner area, and then to mid-mountain. There you can either traverse to the Ripper or take the Stoke chair to the highest lift-accessed point on the mountain. Revelstoke ski resort is actually on Mt. Mackenzie, and if you can hike to its peak from there to find the most spectacular terrain in the area. This avalanche-gear-required zone is mostly above the tree-line and has many cliffs and chutes.

Lower down the mountain there are some lengthy cruiser runs on Revelstoke. It currently has the most vertical of any ski resort in Canada, so you can expect some leg-burners here. There are usually some glades to cut into as well in this area.

Revelstoke resort is a very well designed ski area and has something for every serious skier and boarder.
