Day 2 of Revelstoke Adventure Feb 3rd 2012

Today is first day of skiing. Have a breakfast in room and at motel, english muffins, coffee, and some fruit that I picked up.

Then suit up and pack skis into the car and drive to the Revelstoke ski Resort.

Be the 3rd person in line and not many people here, as there are never line ups.

Finally place opens up and everyone piles onto the gondola and up the hill.

Finally at top of Revelation Gondola, ski a bit to the Stoke Ski lift and up that lift

Takes a total of 18 minutes to get to top from the base of the mountain.

The runs are all freshly groomed and amazing. 

This time I finally make my hike up to the peak of the mountain and ski down some fresh powder.

I find this nice bowl on the north side and some amazing powder there.

At one point I ventured off to the north side hiking then ski down and ended up at a cliff.

Thought this would be impeding doom till I was able to find the safety way down to the more ski able area.

Overall an amazing day of skiing. Ran into many interesting people riding up the lift from all over the world and local people as well.

Evening had a dinner at The Village Idiot very good food and some great local beer.

Then it was off to bed as I have early start the next day. Really more less here to ski.

Not a whole lot of opportunity to party place for Revelstoke . But it is a really nice town and has some good charm to it. It is nice to get out and walk around at night.

I noticed that the nightclub Outabounds is no longer open nor was the Traverse Club which was a make shift ripper bar was closed down.

But in general you don’t need those type of things when your in a place of amazing skiing etc.

I could go on about the ski day but to detail every ski run would be tedious to read and I rather sum it all up and say the skiing was amazing and just post my photos.
