Revelstoke and Roger's Pass, British Columbia

Revelstoke and Roger's Pass are world-renowned destinations for free ride and ski touring.

With its long, cold winters and 1,700m+ of possible elevation gain, the Revelstoke Mountain ski resort is a world-renowned destination for snow sports. Although the area is home to a good range and variety of slopes, it's the freeride that most people come for, with quality lines in a beautiful alpine setting and much of the off-piste accessible from the lifts. Roger's Pass - located about 40 minutes away - is another popular destination for free ride and ski touring, boasting incredible varied alpine terrain, beautiful views over the Selkirk range, and 12+ m of snow annually.
