Cat skiing operates on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from December to March, and participants must be a minimum age of 15. Cat/Heli Preparation lessons are available through the ski school and will show you how to pick a line through the trees and conserve energy while making turns that adapt to the terrain. The programme ensures you are well prepared for a cat- or heli-skiing experience.
Not a place to bring the kids just yet
Revelstoke is a place for advanced and expert skiers and boarders to let rip. It’s just starting to get set up for children. There is a handful of gentler trails and the new Outdoors Centre acts as the ski school meeting place and provides a lunchtime space for children enrolled in full-day programmes (skiers aged five years and upwards, snowboarders from eight). There’s a ball pit here, along with a mini-climbing wall and giant TVs. There is also an excellent indoor pool and aquatic centre in Revelstoke town. But this isn’t really what the resort is about – yet. This is bound to change, so watch this space!
