Wednesday July 20, 2011, Revelstoke, British Columbia – Revelstoke Mountain Resort is excited to announce the development of a new village-based beginner area, tube park, kids’ centre, and family activity programming; all planned for the 2011-12 ski season. The beginner area project is underway with re-shaping of the lower mountain terrain above the gondola base to produce a gentler slope, ideal for beginners. An additional feature, conveniently located adjacent to the beginner area, will be a fun-for-all tube park, planned for both daytime and evening operations. Lift access to both areas is planned via a new 175m/580ft conveyor lift. The introduction of snowmaking will solidify plans for the beginner area and tube park.
New family activity programming is planned through the Revelstoke Outdoor Centre (ROC) at RMR. In addition to fun on the slopes, children can experience Kids ROC – a dedicated space complete with an oversized helicopter TV, an indoor rock climbing wall, and fun ball-pit. New programming for children and families will include après activities such as movie, craft, and game nights and special events such as kids’ birthday party hosting.
Family Fun Continues at Nelsen Lodge
With the grand opening of the third building of Nelsen Lodge’s ski-in, ski-out hotel condominium, families will also enjoy a new year-round outdoor pool, two additional hot tubs and expanded fitness facilities.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort is proud to introduce these new facilities and services geared towards those new to the sport as well as visiting families. The design and implementation are oriented around the centralized village base, making an easily enjoyable family experience with close proximity to all services, spectator access, and ski-in/ski-out lodging at Nelsen Lodge.
