This is the review from a local.

First off this is longer then normal

This resort hasn't changed much since I moved here in 2011. Sure we have added another lift, it helps but more is needed from mid station. Lift lines are becoming a thing and when it snows 10cms or more expect to wait. 830am powder day, if you want to get first tracks better come at 730am to get in gondola line. After that there will be a line that starts at mid-station usually around 9.30am. If it's a busy time the mid station line will be longer than base due to crowds skiing to mid station. If you're waiting 20mins at the base your gonna wait 20mins longer at mid sometimes. What do you expect when you can get face shots 5000ft long. Kill the Banker is the run under the gondola and has always been my fav when it's good, it's all time. Check for yourself when you leave the mid station, you will see everything you want if you are able to ride that terrain.

So show up at 7.30am if you want to get ahead of the crowd, almost everyday now. Grab a coffee/get your instagram going and be patient.

As for RMR a lot of the terrain after big dumps over night won't open ASAP. Most of the time it's 10am. Avy control for our safety is key to all Alpine terrain here...its big and steep and 50% of people coming here aren't going into those areas.

So, lets say it hasn't snowed in a few days. Check temps and see where the freeze-thaw levels are. That sorta determines where you may go and look for snow or will you just ride the gondola and do "mid mountain laps". When it's icy above stick to the mid mountain and rip the long groomers.

Mid mountain has a lot of terrain. Usually its the place to be after mid Jan once it has all filled in. Don't be fooled, there are trees cliffs, steeps and butt hole puckering speeds you can get. Again, mid week powder days on mid mountain are all time.

So you wanna ride alpine, there is lots of it...but I won't lie it does get shredded up faster. When you don't venture too far, be ready to boot pack Lemming Line when the Avy control is done by 10am and you will be rewarded. Now, that being said, once you drop in over towards the NorthBowl or Greely area you're now gonna have 40mins to return back to that area if not more, the traverses are longer. This is where knowledge is key.

Ok so you have dropped in and now your heading to the Ripper chair. This has some of the best tree skiing. To be honest, I head to this area first if the mountain is busy and being a local there is a lot of ways to obtain no lift line and fresh face shots for 2hrs if you go there ASAP. Why do I go here ASAP, well, when the alpine really isn't open till 10am and you don't want to wait in another gondola line at Mid, The Ripper Chair has it all.

Overall, Revy is still amazing and will only get better with years down the road. Even in these Covid times the lines are just longer 'cause we can't stuff the lifts full so it seems, patience

Simple Rules

1-Check weather reports! This is the first thing I do before I go to bed and wake up and follow

2-Arrive early

3-Be patient

4-Head to Ripper if it snows a lot

5-Wait for the North bowl to open

6-Go rip some alpine runs

7-Have fun
