Earthy tones never go out of style. Neither does trekking an earthy moss field to get to the good ol’ fashion pow. Even better if you can dig up an old school freeride board to

Who says fashion and function can’t mix? Revelstokians are no amateurs when it comes to their winter gear, from Gore-Tex everything to the perfect base layer to the most long-lasting garments achievable. Thankfully Revelstoke’s flagship gear store, R Gear, feels the same. With the grand opening of the new store having just happened, RMR’s retail scene has stepped up its game—and they’re excited to showcase what’s in store.

Tree Tap: No need to worry about going unseen in the woods with this full Dakine getup that’s sure to turn heads. And if the sweet colours aren’t enough, the must-have Gore-Tex will win you over. Plus, this sweet bib happens to zip up at the front for ultra comfort.

Après Ski: As if a pow day at RMR isn’t enough on its own, we happen to be lucky enough to have heaps of good spots for an après ski treat. Make sure you’re ready to see and be seen with some layers that are as good on the hill as they are at the bar.
