Skiing British Columbia: Revelstoke Mountain Resort Photo Essay

I spent this past week in Revelstoke, BC skiing (and face-planting into powder) at Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR), and all I have to say is, wow. Just, wow. The trip was exciting, terrifying, eye-opening, educational, and full of all sorts of fun. Between the incredible amount of snowfall, the lack of crowds, the jaw-dropping scenery and Mother Nature's humbling displays of power, it was impossible not to have an amazing time.

Day 1: At the Last Spike Historic Site where the Canadian Pacific Railroad was completed.

I'll have a post about the mountain, the skiing, and how hard it is to be an "intermediate" skier with a mountain like this at your disposal coming about it in a few days. (updated: find the trip report here!) But for now, I've compiled some of my favorite shots of our week in the beautiful Columbia Mountains, taken either by Dan or myself.

Enjoy!
