By the end of my weekend at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, I was officially elevation-drunk.
Perhaps it was the massive vertical achieved through six helicopter drops in the 500,000 acres that comprise Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing backcountry terrain; or maybe it was from skiing on North America's longest resort runs.
Either way, my brain struggled to comprehend the gargantuan scale of the mountains.
