For the weekend, the Stoke and Ripper chairs will both be open. The gondola will start running at 8:30 a.m. and last chair on the Stoke will be at 3 p.m.

The resort also announced special deals for opening weekend. Season pass holders at all western Canadian ski resorts will receive a 25 per cent discount on lift tickets, and ski and stay packages will start at $99 per person per night.

After the sneak peek, the resort will close for the week until it opens for full operations on December 3.

Meanwhile, even more snow is expected to fall tonight. Environment Canada issued a a snowfall warning for the Revelstoke area, with 15 cm of snow expected to hit the ground by Thursday morning.
