As the snow continues to fall on Mt. Mackenzie, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is preparing to open November 29th amidst excellent early season conditions.
With over 270 cm of snow already, and a further 30-40 cm forecast before opening day, the 2014/15 season will be kicking off with a base of over 115 cm and enough powder to go around.
“Things are looking awesome! With all the new snow we will be opening top to bottom, giving skiers and snowboarders access to all 5620 ft of vertical,” says Mike Verwey, Mountain Operations Manager.
“Looking at the forecast, what is going to make this even better than past opening days is that we are going to have amazing visibility… after all the snow comes down, it is going to clear up and be bluebird for Saturday.”
One hundred per cent of the lifts on the mountain will be operational for the first day of the season, giving skiers and snowboarders access to nearly all of the 3,121 acres of inbound terrain.
With all that untouched powder being served up, Steve Bailey, Director of Skier Services and Base Area Operations says, “be prepared for Saturday to feel like heli-skiing, but for the price of a lift ticket.”
Lifts will start operating at 8:30am on Saturday, with the last ride on the Ripper at 2:30pm and on the Stoke at 3pm.
