Scenes from opening day at Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Long lines and lots of snow was on the menu for opening day at RMR.



Opening day #5 has come and gone at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and this year Ullr delivered with fresh snow the night before the resort’s sneak peek opening.

Nathan Rey, Tjasse Martens, Chance Martens, Tom O, AJ Ritchie and Andy White (above) got the first gondola after camping out in line for 12 hours. They just beat out John Devitt, Cyril Tomlinson, Tania Peters and Johnny Adams, who showed up two minutes late.

Once the gondola started moving and skiers and snowboarders reached the slopes there was the usual woops and hollers and snow-encased smiles as people “shredded the gnar,” ran into old friends from last winter and in general had a great day.

Check out the video above to see what the line was like and browse the slideshow below for some pictures.
