revel • /'rev( ə )l/ - enjoy oneself in a lively and noisy way.

stoke • /stōk/ - the exhilaration a person finds in something. 

What else is there to say? Whoever came up with the name for Revelstoke Mountain Resort freakin' nailed it. Located in British Columbia's interior on the behemoth Mount Mackenzie, Revelstoke is the king of the powder highway boasting the most vertical in North America at 1,713 metres (5,620 ft).

It's like someone sat down the world's sickest skiers, asked them to design their perfect mountain and Mother Nature said "sounds lit, lets make it". With 10.5 metres (34 ft) of average annual snowfall, it is one of the few Canadian Ski Resorts that begs the question "is this too much powder?" (which of course it isn't). All in all, the namers got it right. You will be revelling in the stoke of this perfect mountain every time you visit it and the only problem you'll find is that last chair just seems to come way too early.
