When it opened in 2007, Revelstoke Mountain Resort pioneered the idea of combining resort skiing, heliskiing and cat skiing. Since then, it has established itself as one of the world's leading ski resorts for good reason. While the number of lifts and marked runs still pales into insignificance compared to the likes of Vail and Les Trois Vallées, Revelstoke has two unassailable advantages – more vertical than any other resort in North America and more annual snowfall than just about anywhere (except maybe Japan). For afficionados of tree-skiing, the old growth forest makes a pretty compelling third. These and some of the best heliski operators in the business make it a unique place to combine resort and heli-skiing.
Unlike many other ski towns, Revelstoke hasn't strayed too far from its origins of mining and forestry and the town remains refreshingly 'down to earth'. However, the huge potential of the skiing hasn't gone unnoticed and people that like their powder deep but want to come back to a seriously comfortable place to stay and great food and drinks are increasingly well catered for, thanks to a great hotel and a growing number of private homes that rival and surpass the best chalets in Europe.
Sutton Place Hotel
The Sutton Place Hotel is located right at the base of the gondola and offers a great range of services and facilities. The range of suites offers great versatility for groups from families to groups of friends with twin or king bed options and even the most modest room, the Studio Suite, is a spacious 500 sq feet and has a kitchenette, washer/dryer and a gas fireplace while the larger, condo-style rooms have one, two or three separate bedrooms, full kitchens and balconies.
The Rockford Bar & Grill offers a hearty international menu, local craft beers and fine BC wines. If you want to vary your evening meals, you will need to take the free shuttle into town where there is a decent range of restaurants from Asian to pizzerias and classic Canadian grills.
Sutton Place also has a heated outdoor lap pool, fitness centre and hot tubs while treatments are available at the Sointula Spa in the adjacent building.

Exceptional Private Homes in Revelstoke
Revelstoke has embraced the European Chalet model with a selection of exceptional properties that lack for nothing. Hot tubs, saunas, resort shuttles, cinema rooms, bars and gyms all come as standard here and optional extras are more likely to consist of private helipads and indoor climbing walls. Well-drilled and discreet teams of concierges, chefs and butlers ensure that you can focus exclusively on skiing, snowboarding and relaxation.
Whatever the occasion, from a reunion of friends or family to a 40th or 50th birthday celebration, we reckon that one of these incredible homes, paired with a private helicopter makes the most unforgettable ski trip to share.
These properties get booked up early so don't hesitate to contact us with you preferred week and programme.

The chalet is fully staffed with the private chef, who will tailor menus to your requirements and liking, host to prepare drinks and serve and concierge to make arrangements each day so that you make the most of every minute.

It includes everything you would expect (outdoor sauna, hot tub, fitness & massage room) and plenty you might not (climbing wall, swim spa, private helipad, table tennis and outdoor kitchen).

We think the capacity for a big group and the facilities make this an incredible property for a memorable, multi-generational family get-together.

The chalet spans over 7000sq feet and sleeps 10 guests in five suites. The focus is on wellness with a superb fitness room with free weights, cross trainer, running machine and ergo rower, 2 massage rooms, sauna and a hot tub with river and mountain views. If that all sounds like a bit too much wellness, there is also a bar, home cinema room and fire pit and the private chef is on site for all meals - breakfast, après-ski, dinner, and include service includes local award-winning wines and beers and a selection of premium spirits.
The property team includes daily housekeeping, bartenders and servers for all meals and drinks, as well as a private car service in and around Revelstoke and to the Selkirk Tangiers helipad which is just 30 seconds from the chalet.
Because the rooms are identical and can be configured with either king-size beds or twin beds, we think Five Peaks Chalet is the ideal property for groups of friends.

The original Revelstoke chalet set the bar for ultimate chalets, not just in Revelstoke, but around the world and Chalet Bighorn continues to do so.
15,000 sq feet of indulgence with 8 suites for 16 guests who benefit from just about every imaginable facility - indoor current pool, private helipad, sauna, gym, pool table, outdoor hot tub with views of the Monashees, private cinema, hi-tech security system and much more. If you need to combine work and play, the 16-seater dining room also has full conferencing facilities.
The triple height great room with its impressive log fire is just one of many places to gather - once you're done with the pool, hot tub or gym, you might also choose to hang out in the bar for a pool tournament, on the deck by the outdoor fireplace, in the cinema or around the open kitchen with its teppanyaki grill.
We think Chalet Bighorn is simply the "go-to" property for the most uncompromising ski trip money can buy.

Eleven Revelstoke Lodge
The newest addition to the Revelstoke portfolio offers something different with its downtown location. Formerly the Explorer Society Hotel, this historic building is in the heart of the town with easy walking access to a range of restaurants and bars, making it ideal for anyone wanting to enjoy some more varied dining and nightlife after skiing.
Heliskiing is arranged in private (3 + 2 guides) or semi-private (4-8 + 2 guides) groups in the Valhalla range, taking off from the Revelstoke helipad, just a 7 minute drive from the lodge.
The 9 suites can all be configured as doubles or twins and because the property has its own restaurant, you can choose between eating there or in the private dining room, or at a restaurant in town.
RMR can be quiet in the evenings so this is a great bet for small groups wanting a highly personalised heliski experience, but a bit more of a crowd for apres-ski.

When to book?
To get your choice of property or room (and helicopter if you want one), especially in prime-time weeks of the season, you really need to be looking at a trip like this a year in advance because many people rebook from one year to the next (which itself is testament to the quality of experience) but even further ahead is better so that we can secure availability for you as soon as it comes up.
