New chalets give front row access to all of Cabot Revelstoke’s fun

Swiss-style chalets will be located steps from the ski gondola and the first tee of the golf course for the best of both seasons.

As our helicopter slowly spins around at the far end of the development, the full scale of the Cabot Revelstoke project — including, of course, the spectacular Rod Whitman-designed golf course — comes into view. Rough-shaped golf holes rise and fall on the rocky and rugged terrain. The just-cleared site for the six Swiss-style chalets, located high on a ridge overlooking Mount Begbie and the serpentine Columbia River, is also recognizable from our high-in-the-sky view. And, of course, the front face of the Mountain Revelstoke Resort, with its twisted fingers of ski runs and mountain biking trails funnelling down the fall lines, is prominent to our left.

Located roughly halfway between Calgary and Vancouver, wedged between the Selkirk, Monashee and Purcell mountain ranges, Revelstoke is a historic mountain town that has been charging ahead with many exciting developments in the past decade or so. Unquestionably, the launch of the Revelstoke Mountain Resort (in 2007) was a game changer. The massive four-season resort is home to the most vertical, 1,713 metres (5,620 feet), in North America and some of the best big mountain skiing on the planet.

In summer, the resort also boasts many attractions. The extremely popular pipe-coaster (trust me, it’s a wild ride!) from the base village was, and still is, a smash hit. Also, the resort boasts the longest machine-made mountain biking flow trail in the world. Fifty Six Twenty is a 15-kilometre marathon with, literally, hundreds of berms, jumps and side hits. So yes, safe to say that Revelstoke is no longer a place solely for railroaders and lumberjacks. Anyone who loves world-class mountain recreation — be it hiking, mountain biking, skiing and so on — can find their happy place in Revelstoke.

“Cabot’s ethos is founded on a restless spirit of discovery,” says Diana McCarty, vice-president of real estate sales at Cabot Revelstoke. “It’s a brand that seeks out far-flung destinations primed for adventure and always looks to be stewards of the land while giving back to local communities. The area of Revelstoke, a mecca for experienced skiers and winter adventurers, will be a perfect addition to our Cabot portfolio. It’s an incredible mountain destination.”

In total, the project will comprise 79 luxurious residences in six beautiful Swiss-style chalets. The architecture, which draws inspiration from the classic ski chalets in the Dolomites, Austria and Switzerland, has a contemporary twist with high ceilings, large windows and multiple terraces. The interiors are Nordic inspired with stone fireplaces, warm wood tones and plenty of alpine elegance throughout. The architect of the chalets is Hart Howerton and the general contractor is M3. Each chalet will feature two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom residences. Two-bedroom units (1,880 square feet) start at $2.5 million and five-bedroom penthouses (3,630 square feet) start at $5.4 million.

Fittingly, there will be many additional amenities for homeowners to enjoy. A spa, fitness centre, gathering spaces and numerous dining options in the nearby base village will be steps away from the chalets.
