Revelstoke ski area in BC, Canada, which operates the biggest lift-served vertical in North America, will add another two runs this winter, as part of ongoing improvements.
The new trails will appear in the resort’s Ripper Zone, the first of which will be completed in advance of Opening Day, December 1, 2018. Named ‘Blow Down’ and ‘Simmer Down’ the runs are aimed at intermediate skiers and riders.
Ripper Zone, a glade skiing area, will be a focal point for on-mountain enhancements over the next two years. This summer resort staff completed an extensive glading program in Powder Monkey Glades and the Lower Back 40 Glades meaning skiers and riders can look forward to improved spacing and some new line choices in both of these areas. A new warming hut has also been constructed atop the Ripper Chair.
In other upgrades 2018/19, Revelstoke Mountain Resort lift tickets and passes will be equipped with the latest RFID technology. There will also be two new Prinoth snowcats in the grooming fleet for the upcoming winter.
