Great Start to 2015/16

What an epic start it has been to our ski season this year! Revelstoke Mountain Resort is one of the leaders in all of western Canada and USA so far with 510 cm total snowfall this season! Lately we have been getting a bit of fresh snow almost every night which is keeping all the areas “fresh” – and the consistent below freezing temperatures have kept the snow light and fluffy in most places. The tree glade skiing has been awesome! Plus, now that our new deck and hot tub is installed you can enjoy our top ranked B&B even more après-ski!

It looks like a great year in the making folks so book your reservation soon to avoid getting jammed for the dates you want.

Winter Attitudes

As many of you know, this winter’s snowconditions weren’t the typical Revelstoke powder we are accustomed to! Even though we received more snow on the ski mountain than average, 4 very warm weather systems through the season brought some challenging conditions.

On the upside, Revelstoke Mountain Resort did a phenomenal job at ensuring the mountain was the best it could be on any given day and many of the heli ski operations in town were able to venture in to some unique territory given that avalanche conditions were quite low for most of the season. For many of our guests, the snow conditions were not exactly what they had expected when travelling to one of the best powder areas in North America. But what was incredible this winter was the amazing attitudes of our guests for just enjoying anytime on the hill, or accepting whatever life gave them with open minds and open hearts.

It was refreshing to meet such wonderful people this winter who didn’t let disappointing snow conditions stop them from experiencing whatever they could from the day or from their holiday.

I’m grateful that our little B&B welcomes such incredible people who share their stories with us, share their experiences, but most of all share their infectious attitudes that happiness isn’t derived from things outside of us but rather how we approach situations and setbacks and conditions that weren’t quite as expected.

The other good news is that these weather systems are only supposed to happen every 4 years! Book now for next winter…it should be an excellent powder year!
