More than 3,000 people came out to ski and snowboard at Revelstoke Mountain Resort on opening, a new record for the resort.

With more than three metres of snow so far this season, expectations were high when the lifts started spinning at Saturday, Nov. 28.

The line began Friday morning, when the first tent was pitched, and more campers followed throughout the day. By the time the gondola opened at 8:30 a.m., the line wound through the maze and all the way through the middle parking lot and beyond.

Those who got up early enjoyed untouched snow. Those less eager (like this writer), had to hunt for the remaining powder stashes,

A strong inversion – it was about 10 C warmer at the top of the mountain than at the bottom – made for almost spring-like skiing up high, with the warm sun softening up the west and south aspects.
