Local Sam launching almohadas del Gracias Ridge en el North Bowl en su Negro Ninja Traje

A couple of very cool locals showed us around today.  We did a lot of hiking, skied some sexy pillows, and learned a lot about Revelstoke the mountain and Revelstoke the town.  The fresh snow to human being ratio in bounds is very high right now.

Mt. Mackenzie, Revelstoke, British Columbia

REVELSTOKE CONDITIONS TODAY:

– At opening bell there were 4 new centimeters of snow overnight 

– It snowed 11 more centimeters throughout the day

– Strong SW winds were ripping on the top of the mountain and blowing snow into the North Bowl

– Untouched stashes and pillows were up to a foot deep (30cms) deep in blown in spots in the North Bowl

– The front side of the mountain was chopped up pow and powder moguls with about 5cms of fresh snow on top towards the end of the day

– It snowed all day and progressively snowed harder with solid, steady moderate snowfall at closing time

– Tomorrow morning is going to be good…

WHERE THE SKIING WAS BEST TODAY:

– North Bowl was blown in with dry, smokey, responsive powder

– Gracias Ridge tenia lugares con almohadas bien fondos y divertidos

– Devil’s Club trees all the way down to the mid-station of the gondola on the front side had endless, soft powder moguls

We’ll never tell you where these secret pillows are

CROWD FACTOR:

– There were no lines and few people out today

– At times the line on the hike out to was pretty full, but it spreads out quick once they reach North Bowl (see pic)

– Again, there just aren’t enough people here to track this place out

– The locals here are crazy friendly, cool, fun, and strong skiers (5K+ vertical foot runs thru complex terrain will do that to you)

OVERALL:

– Today was even better than yesterday with a bit more snow, improving conditions throughout the day, and some local knowledge

– Foot deep zones and stupid fun pillow lines were the highlights

– Long 5,000 foot runs through pow moguls create happiness

yep, more insane pillows and yellow icefalls
