For the past few weeks, we’ve been tracking Wyatt Caldwell as he road trips to the epicenter of Revelstoke, BC. In the final episode of our Road to Revelstoke series, the Caldwell brothers explore the three modes of access that have made Revelstoke such a draw for backcountry skiers and shredders. The Idaho boys load up the lifts at Revelstoke Mountain Resort to drop in to North Bowl, access the skintracks at Rogers Pass in pounding storm and dial in the sleds for a deep powder mission in a high-horsepower mecca. They experience blower pow in all three zones, providing them with a great way to send out the road trip and a great reason to return.
For those who missed the first four episodes, the recap is below:
Last winter we sent our Eddie Bauer ski and snowboard team up the Powder Highway of interior BC for two epic road trips. We recapped the first Stellar Media trip last month on the LYA blog, but the sequel was a whole different story. It started when we pointed Eddie Bauer shredder Wyatt Caldwell north from Idaho with a road map, a camper, a sled trailer, a promise of heli time at Eagle Pass and his brother Yancy to document the experience.
The Idaho boys made it over the border, beyond the Nelson, BC vortex, through the mountain passes, on the last ferry and even to grandma’s house before landing their program in the crossroads powder hamlet of Revelstoke and the driveway of Echo Bay Lodge. But they arrived with perfect timing to bluebird conditions after a month of storm. The result of their brothers-on-the-road journey is a five-part, mini-series that we’ve called, The Road to Revelstoke, which blends classic Caldwell flavor with the epic powder road trip experience.
