REVELSTOKE - A popular ski resort in the B.C. Interior will be getting its latest attraction next month — The Pipe Mountain Coaster.

Similar to a rollercoaster, guests at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort can board the mountain’s gondola and hop on The Pipe Mountain Coaster to ride 279 metres down the hill. It begins with a drop into a tunnel and ends with a ride into the Resort Village.

The ride is family-friendly; everyone can adjust their speed with brakes installed on the cart as they twist around the ski runs and ride through the trees.

If you’re in it for the speed, the cart can travel up to 42 kilometres per hour.

The attraction opens May 21.

Ticket prices vary depending on number of rides and participant ages. For more information on the ride and costs, visit the resort website.
