The Pipe Mountain Coaster: Reopening May 20th at Revelstoke Mountain Resort

REVELSTOKE, BC--(Marketwired - May 17, 2017) - Revelstoke Mountain Resort is just days away from reopening its star summer attraction: The Pipe Mountain Coaster. After a blockbuster inaugural season in 2016, The Pipe is going to be open seven days a week from May 20th to October 1st. To celebrate the Victoria Day long weekend, The Pipe will open with extended hours from 9am to 7pm from May 20th to May 22nd. For the duration of the summer, hours of operation will be 9am to 5pm from May 23rd to June 29th, 8am to 8pm from June 30th to September 4th, and 9am to 5pm from September 5th to October 1st.

This unique single-track coaster can reach speeds of up to 42km/hr as it snakes 1.4km from Revelation Lodge down to the Village Plaza. Unlike a traditional coaster, the rider controls their speed and can tailor their thrill factor, making it great fun for the whole family.

New for summer 2017, guests can revel in spectacular views as they ride the Revelation Gondola all the way to its top, a mile high in elevation at 1,682 metres (5,519 feet). Once there, they can soak in the glacier views from the deck of the Mackenzie Outpost or explore the pristine natural landscape with four kilometres of new walking and hiking trails. This incredible sightseeing and hiking experience will run from June 30th until Labour Day, September 4th.

Guests will be able to package these two activities with the mountain's famous breakfast buffet on the Revelation Lodge patio. Touted by locals as Revelstoke's best patio, it offers extraordinary views of the town of Revelstoke, the surrounding Monashee Mountains, and the Columbia River.
