"The event was a great way to meet with leading professionals in the industry and experience the rich ski history of Kitzbühel," said Rennie. "I was incredibly honoured to accept such a prestigious award that puts Revelstoke Mountain Resort on the map on a more global scale. This award belongs to the dedicated team at the resort who has made us what we are. Without their dedication and efforts, none of this would be possible."
