The tenure is in excess of 33,000 acres and this winter the area you will be skiing and snowboarding is on a mountain known locally as K3. You will ski and snowboard the entire mountain and the varied terrain provides an excellent mix of runs. Many of the runs are treed with a nice pitch, but there is also wide open alpine areas where you can enjoy long cruising runs. As well, you can experience great skiing in the South Park burn and when stability is good you will have some exceptional steep tree skiing on slopes up to 50 degrees! You will also be skiing and snowboarding in the new 4 Mile summit area where you can enjoy steep tree runs of over 2000 vertical feet.
The runs average 1500 vertical feet and range from 1200 to 3000 vertical feet. Most of the runs are high up on the mountain, ending at around the 5000 foot elevation so there is generally good snow conditions all winter. The highest elevation is over 7400 feet and the lowest point is around 4000 feet. Also, more than half of the runs are North and East aspect and this helps ensure good snow in all weather conditions.
K3 North is a new and completely separate area. Access is from 13 kilometer on the North Fork road. From here the snowcat will take you up into some great terrain including an area that Mustang Powder, the neighbour to the north, has been skiing for the past 4 winters under an agreement with K3.
For the ski program the team has 3 new Pisten Bully 600s outfitted with passenger cabs that comfortably accommodate 12 skiers and 2 guides. With 400 horsepower these powerful snowcats quickly get you to the top of the mountain. For backup they have another PistenBully, a PB300 complete with its own cab, not as powerful but it still gets the job done and ensures that in the unlikely event of a breakdown there won't be any wasted days. They also have 2 PB200s for full-time road building and road maintenance.
There are inherent risks and rewards when skiing and snowboarding in the mountains. Our guides and operating policies are committed to ensuring your safety and to reduce risks. However, you are required to acknowledge these risks by signing a waiver of liability prior to heading out into the mountains. A copy of the liability waiver is included in the registration section.
Over the many this cat skiing operation has been running, they never had a serious accident or mishap. The area to ski and board generally enjoys a good, stable snowpack. There also are many low angle nicely treed runs, where the risk of an avalanche is greatly reduced. And, at those times when the avalanche hazard is high the guide stay off the steeper slopes and enjoy the more mellow terrain until the snowpack has stabilized.
All guests are required to wear an avalanche transceiver and to carry a small pack that contains a shovel, probe and radio. On the first day everyone is instructed in how to use the equipment and a search and rescue scenario is practiced. The operator supply all of this equipment at no extra charge.

The 112 Steakhouse and Lounge has been serving up classic elegance with a side of winter adventure for 35 years. Slick new hardwood floors, walls clad in perfectly aged brickwork and charcoal grey paint give the dining room and lounge a modern, contemporary feel. A polished granite bar, funky hand-carved furniture and a floor to ceiling wine rack separating the dining area from the bar make this the sort of place that young locals linger late into the evening savouring locally brewed Mount Begbie beer and eating appetizers like Sesame Crusted Ahi
Tuna with Wasabi Aioli or Seared Scallops in Lime Caramel.
Despite the dining rooms shiny new look, old classics never die. Alongside creative, new fare, the culinary team at the 112 are still serving up the old favourites like Dijon Crusted Rack of Lamb and Chicken Cordon Bleu. And for the seafood lover, a steaming bowl of Cioppino simmered gently in a broth of tomato, fennel and saffron warms the bones on a chilly, winter evening.

One of the local heli-ski operators claims that Revelstoke offers the best skiing on the planet, and that may not be an exaggeration.

By the way, boarders are welcome too.
