Revelstoke, British Columbia, first developed as a transcontinental railroad boomtown in the late 1800s. It faded and became a sleepy logging town for the next 100 years. But last winter, Revelstoke Mountain Resort opened and the town's second boom officially hit. The master plan: develop the only ski resort in the world to offer lift, cat-, and heli-skiing right from the village, and over the next 15 years, develop lifts, a projected 10,000 acres of terrain, and the longest run in North America at 5,620 vertical feet. Photographer Matthew Scholl was there on opening day; click "Next" to see what he captured.
