Travel Tips for Revelstoke
Revelstoke Mountain Resort (Ski Area)
Revelstoke's ski area is relatively new, having been opened in 2007. Until then, the local skiing was limited to those who had the means to afford helicopter and cat-skiing trips.
Revelstoke is home to the oldest continuously active ski group, having been founded over 100 years ago. There are lots of old photos and historical information posted at the mid-mountain lodge.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort is a fantastic hill for the advanced skier. There are countless bowls and trees, making it a back country skiers dream with the convenience of having chair lifts.
The website link below gives directions and options for the shuttle bus. All equipment is available at the resort, but possibly cheaper to rent in town.
Some of the back bowls are open to the public, but avalanche beacons are required.
"Revelstoke gets lots of snow in Winter!"
Revelstoke was our stop before heading onto Yoho National Park and to
Banff for our next stay. This is a small town which has the Columbia river
running through it and pituresque mountains surrounding it.
We had hoped to go up the Meadows to the Sky National Park, but it was
still closed because of snow at the beginning of Summer.
A very good website is www.seerevelstoke.com
I have never stayed in Revelstoke, however I have been there quite a few times since it is usually our meeting place when a bunch of us drive from Calgary to Kelowna or Sicamous to go houseboating.
Its definately a small town, lots of gas stations and fast food joints, and its easy to navigate your way through the area.
