Fantastic little documentary exploring Revelstoke, Canada through the lens of the townspeople. The town has been around for since the 1880’s but only became a major ski destination since Revelstoke Mountain Resort opened for operation in 2007. This is a different type of ski film than you might be used to as it aims to encapsulate the essence of life in a stunning and remote adventure paradise through the local inhabitants. Very cool.
Holmlands are proud to present “The Revelstoke Diaries” – as we go behind the scenes of the ski town of Revelstoke in British Columbia, Canada. Nestled in the heart of British Columbia, Revelstoke was originally founded in the 1880s when the Canadian Pacific Railway was built in the area – where the railroad still plays an integral part of the township. Renowned for it’s high annual snowfall, the development of Revelstoke Mountain Resort in 2007, has since transformed the small town into a global mecca for adventurers.
A traditional and hardworking mountain town, with stunning natural scenery all around and endless outdoor activities, The Revelstoke Diaries focuses on the people that make the place. We speak with Canadians who reflect different aspects of mountain life – and are proud to call Revelstoke their home – seeing how the community is united by their own passion for adventure and love for the great outdoors.
Taking a different perspective to traditional ski films; we speak with a local train diver, professional adventurers and environmental activists, a retiree, an entrepreneur, musicians, an artist, a police officer, a night groomer and more… The Revelstoke Diaries aims to encapsulate the essence of life in this stunning and remote adventure paradise through the gaze of the local.
