Revelstoke is now announcing that the resort will be closed for the remainder of the 2020-2021 winter season.
Here is the full statement from RMR’s VP of Operations:
Operations Update – RMR Closed for the Season
March 31 2021
Due to a staff shortage in our Mountain Operations division attributed to Covid-19 circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to cease operations for the 2020.21 winter season. Our top priority at Revelstoke Mountain Resort has always been the health and safety of our guests and employees. Please note, access to the mountain is prohibited when the Resort is not in operation.
If you have unused lift tickets for this season, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a full refund or for credit towards next winter. Please be patient as we address all customer inquiries and navigate this challenging time.
Although this season has ended abruptly, I encourage you to look back on the high points of this past winter. Take a moment to scroll through your phone and relive the moments you captured while skiing or riding.
At the Resort, we began this season on November 27 and operated for a total of 124 days. We faced several challenges but rallied together as a team to keep our doors open. Your commitment to follow our safety protocols allowed us to deliver a world-class ski and snowboard experience, despite the Covid-19 pandemic. The ability to experience the outdoors allowed us to stay healthy, both physically and mentally, and I am personally thankful for the experiences I had on the mountain.
I would also like to state how proud I am of our staff and local community. The collective passion shared by our employees and residents is what makes Revelstoke so special. I cannot think of a better place to work, play or live.
In closing, I look forward to welcoming everyone back when we kick off our summer season on May 21 with the opening of the Pipe Mountain Coaster. Until then, stay healthy and get outside often.

Revelstoke is the 2nd resort in the last two days to close prematurely. They join Whistler Blackcomb in making the tough decision to stop spinning lifts for the season.
