The resort’s lift tickets and passes will be equipped with the latest RFID technology. New RFID enabled Season Passes will be available for pick up in late October; All Season Passholders will be required to pick up a new RFID enabled Season Pass.
Building off of a partnership that was established with Prinoth last year, Revelstoke will be adding two additional Prinoth snowcats to its grooming fleet for the upcoming winter. These new snowcats will help the resort maintain its reputation for high standards of snow grooming.
Alongside these developments, the resort has also begun planning for the 2019/20 season.
In an effort to further enhance the Ripper ski experience, an additional lift will be constructed in an area between the Ripper Connector and the Revelation Gondola. This new lift, named the Cupcake Chair, will provide a direct link to the Ripper area from the top of the gondola. The Cupcake Chair will have an upload capacity of 1800 people/hour. Guests can expect a travel time of three minutes. The Cupcake Chair will also feature a new beginner terrain pod that caters to beginner skiers and riders.
A Swiss Cord has also been ordered from SunKid for the 2019/20 season. This lift will be installed alongside the Downtowner flats to help skiers and riders get back to the front side of the mountain from the Ripper Zone.
An increase in the Revelation Gondola capacity has also been confirmed for the 2019/20 season. The resort recently added 24 cabins for the 2017/18 season, increasing capacity by 25%. For the 2019/20 season, the Revelation Gondola will increase to full capacity for 2800 people/hour, with an additional 22 gondola cabins on order.
