Spring is a Hidden Gem
Spring Snow Sports
Revelstoke is known for getting lots of snow in March and offering amazing spring conditions in April (along with the occasional sneaky powder day)!! Both months offer excellent skiing!
Come in March and on average experience more powder days than the rest of the year!! With fewer crowds, ski fresh tree lines all day!
Come in April and ride long groomers in the sunshine. Take in the breathtaking views and carve the most vertical in North America. Stop midmountain at Revelation Lodge and have a beer in the sun on the patio. Either way, spring in Revelstoke means you are guaranteed to have great days of skiing.
With less crowds and the season wrapping up find sales everywhere! Get great deals on gear and repairs and at many of the local retail shops. Revelstoke Mountain Resort offers deals on all lessons, gear and their First Tracks from now until the season ends. Their First Tracks means you are on the first gondola up in the morning and get a full 45 minutes of skiing before the public gets access to the resort.
While town starts to feel the onset of spring, it is snowing in the alpine! Winter stays alive much longer in the mountains. Experience full-on winter on the world-class sled zones on Boulder Mountain and many other epic snowmobile areas in the incredible Revelstoke backcountry.
If you want to try cat and heli-skiing this is the best time! Check out the operations here. Spring means longer days, which means more runs! Usually, there is better visibility and stability to be able to ski those pristine alpine powder bowls and glaciers.
Multi Sport days
Feeling ambitious? Get up and go for a crisp morning bike ride and spend your afternoon soaking up the sun on afternoon groomers! That is a day truly well spent in Revelstoke!
Whether you are looking for the last of that thigh-deep powder, alpine bowls and pillow fields or fun spring skiing with buddies, Revelstoke in spring is epic.
