Our Revi road trip started off at the Mount Baldy comp in Osoyoos. After the comp everyone was asking where we were riding the next day. Some people were going to Big White, others were going to Apex. At the end of the day we had decided to not go home to Whistler, but to go shred Apex... Then the adventure started. The next day we drove from Osoyoos to Penticton, I spent some of my childhood in Penticton so the area was familiar. From Penticton we heading up to Apex. Shredded Apex like it was no big deal. Checked out different terrain, new lines, and fun little park. We lucked out it started to dump on us when we got there, got some nice turns in.
After the day of riding we toured back down to Penticton, checked in to our hotel and each had a power nap (it was needed). Fully fueled and ready to go, night life had began we met up with Ricky Styles and his girl Dani at the Best Damn Sports Bar. While having drinks and chowing down we were all talking about Tailgate BC in Revelstock. After lots of laughs and shred talk, we decided to go to Revelstoke. We thought well we have gone this far why not go the extra mile and hit up Revi! The next morning we left Penticton super early. When we first entered Revi, the first thing on our agenda was to get my boot fixed and get up the hill.
An hour later we had got internet at a cafe told everyone we're off the grid for a couple of days got my boot fixed and we're getting our shred gear on. That day we rode with a Revi local Tara and Mr. Styles. Tara showed us around the mountain, she slay'z the trees. I was blown away at the conditions there, the lightest snow, tight trees, big cliffs, tons of pillows, and none of it was touched. The biggest playground. At the end of the day I couldn't even talk. Had nothing to say, my mind was too over loaded of fun pillow drops and face-shots. That night we stayed at Tara's place, got to feel the Revi local vibe. The next morning we decide that one day wasn't enough, so we got our shred gear on and went for round 2 of Revi goodness. Later that day we went over to the Tailgate BC area to see what it was all about. Tailgate started the next day so everyone was setting up. Got to meet the full Flow Snowboards crew; new people, new smiles, good times!
Third day in Revi we took the day off riding, decided to cruz the town. Meet the Skookum Shop Crew, awesome bike ski/snowboard shop. Loved how the first thing I saw as I walked in was a 3CS jacket! Killin it Skookum. Then we cruised over to Society skate/snowboard shop, really like the shop. Had a good vibe and tons of sweet stuff to check out. At this point and time in the trip we considered ourselves troopers for lasting this long with clothes and everything only packed for a day trip. The 4th day our last day in Revi, packed up the camera gear, put on our shred gear. Went to the hill with open minds. Didn't plan anything out because we weren't the most familiar with the area. At the end of our riding day we got some shot's and rode down some gnarly Revi'ness. The last night in Revi, we had to go out on a bang so we drank Ricky Styles drink's (ricky signature) an amazing combo of Rum, Kaluha, pineapple & cinnamon, and of course Mojitos (Dani's signature), until we got out game faces on for bowling. Good times! The next day we drove from Revelstoke to Whistler. A day shred trip turned out to be a week shred trip, wouldn't have it any other way! All in all meet some awesome people, had some good laughs, shredded hard, party'd hard... Good times, can't wait for next year :)
Thank you: Tara for showing us around Revi, and for letting us crash at you place for a couple nights. Lorraine for the great hospitality. Ricky Styles for your kind heart, and good times. Flow Snowboards crew for being awesome and hosting the sickest event In BC!
