Spring in Revy Is Amazing!


The Spring in Revy is truly an amazing time! This ‘transition’ time is one of our unique offerings that people find themselves partaking in!

Revelstoke has been referred to as ‘the Canadian Tropics’, where perfect temperatures meet snow enthusiasts. Picture yourself snowboarding in early April, breaking a massive sweat because the air is 45 degrees Fahrenheit. At the bottom of the mountain, you take off your winter coat and walk around in a sweater. The beauty of the diverse temps within seconds is something we love around here!

The diverse temperatures bring about diverse activities.  Where else in Canada can you find yourself snowboarding or skiing in the brisk morning, then take out a canoe in the sunny, mild afternoon? Revelstoke offers you the joy of Winter activities and some Spring/Summer activities all on the same day.

Another fun Spring activity is biking. This cardio activity will take you throughout our wildlife areas where you will be privileged to view the Spring vegetation starting to bloom. We hope you aren’t afraid to get down and dirty as some of the trails will still be soft and wet from the melting snow.

At the end of your Winter-Spring full day, the fun really does begin and end at Bison Lodge.

While you and your group are getting ready for dinner, you can munch on a charcuterie platter. Something to tide you over until the main course! Be careful to not spoil your appetite! Your main course is one you’ll want to enjoy fully.

 

After your hearty, filling dinner, finish the evening off with a night cap! Whatever your drink of choice is, a cup of tea, a glass of chardonnay, a whiskey on the rocks, sip to your heart’s delight in front of the fireplace, in the hot tub, in the sauna, or in your deep soaker tub. True rest and relaxation await you at the end of your eventful day.

 

April showers certainly do bring April and May flowers here in Revy. You won’t want to miss the blooming tulips in the Springtime.

Book your Spring vacation now. We’re looking forward to seeing you.

Revelstoke Is A Winter Wonderland


The winter in Revelstoke is what the song Winter Wonderland was written about. Ok, we’re making that up, but we would like to believe it.

People from all over the world come to enjoy the fast-paced thrill ride that is Revelstoke every winter. If you’re looking for adventure, you can find it here.

 

Skiing & Snowboarding

When you look for an epic place to ski and snowboard, you will find it here. Revy is the ultimate skiing and snowboarding destination, with Mount Mackenzie, Mount Revelstoke, Mount Macpherson, and Mount Begbie right at the tips of your skis. Every level of experience will find that each mountain offers its own set of challenges.

Even more exciting in this area of activity is the ability to do some heliskiing ~ being dropped off at a higher elevation via helicopter. Talk about a rush!

Snowmobiling

Revelstoke experiences up to 60 feet of snowfall each winter. Our terrain is definitely not flat, very far from. This is why snowmobiling has become one of our fastest-growing winter activities. The level of expertise to drive a ski-doo ranges from beginner to expert, guided tours being available for those that are just starting out or who want to be accompanied in a new area.

Revelstoke offers a number of snowmobile and ski-doo rental places. View Tourism Revelstoke’s website for a list.

Snowshoeing offers you a completely different winter experience. This is one of the best ways to explore Revelstoke, offering you more freedom to wander in and out of our forested areas, allowing for more opportunities to see our unique wildlife.

It’s completely understandable if you don’t have a pair of snowshoes ‘just laying around’. Revelstoke has four snowshoe rental providers.  Give them a view today.
