MT. MCKENZIE - THE CORE OF VACATION HOME DEVELOPMENT IN REVELSTOKE
Edmonton Journal, March 27, 2010
With a global market now interested in Revelstoke Mountain Resort, the momentum is tangible. The expansion of the Trans-Canada Highway (which is being expanded to four lanes from Alberta into British Columbia) will make driving easier and faster. And for those flying, the Kelowna, Calgary and Vancouver International Airports are all options, with Kelowna being the closest. For those blessed with private jets, the existing Revelstoke airport facilitates smaller planes.

REV - A BURIED TREASURE
Video by V Shaw Productions set for release January 22, 2010
“REV is the successful blend of mind-blowing ski porn, engaging storytelling, and timely journalism … A film about a ski town caught in transition from a small mountain town that relied on industry to a town quickly on its way to becoming one of North America’s top ski destinations. REV is history in the making.” — Keith Carlsen, Senior Correspondent, Powder Magazine
REV - A Buried Treasure
“Shaw doesn’t shy from the myriad of emotions surrounding the transformation of Revelstoke – from a sleepy industrial mountain town, to a world-class ski and snowboard destination. The documentary uses skiing as a vehicle to identify what people love about the town, mountains and snow of Revelstoke they chose to make a permanent part of their lives. This film’s greatest value is its rare documentation of the human story and potential boomtown in its infancy.” — Jason Tross, freeskier.com
Where Peaks are High, And Prices Low
New York Times, December 13, 2009
“Ski resorts were caught flat-footed by the recession last year, as many skiers and snowboaders stayed home. And if they dusted off their skis, many opted for the modest mountain in their backyard, instead of jetting off to the glittering peaks out West.
New York Times
The forecast this year is sunnier. Not only is the economy looking up, but ski resorts have had all year to prepare, with special deals, cheaper flights and other enticements to lure skiers back.”
