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.

Spring Break Has Arrived! Spend It With Us!


The change of yet another season has come! March 20, 2022, signals the beginning of the Spring season! Soon, you will see some tulips start to bloom and we are ready for everything else Mother Nature has in store for us!

This time of year also brings plenty of reasons to travel; most notably, Spring Break. Take that break and spend it with us at Bison Lodge. Revelstoke is the most beautiful spot to be in Canada year-round and you do not want to miss out!

 

There is still plenty of snow to catch before the spring-summer melting begins, but do not wait too long!

The spring is the perfect time to come snowboarding and skiing. We have Canadian tropical temperatures with regular snowfalls. For those of you that wear shorts all year round, you will fit in nicely here, that is how awesome our temperatures are.

Of course, life does not always have to be in the fast lane here in Revy. You can take some time to view some of our amazing National Parks, such as Glacier National Park. Glacier National Park has exceptional alpine scenery and deep valleys filled with ancient forests. It truly is a year-round paradise.  There is so much to see here, it’s as if National Geographic could spend an entire year here and create the most beautiful documentary.

Mount Revelstoke National Park also offers your eyes some bucket list sights. You can either hike or fat bike your way to the summit of the only mountain in Mount Revelstoke National Park, and you can experience the view from the now-abandoned Nels Nelsen ski jumping hill, imagining what it would be like to launch into the air, giving yourself to the will of gravity. Fact, did you know that Nels Nelsen Hill (originally named Big Hill), was the first permanent ski jump hill in Canada, built in 1916?! You will be standing at the precipice of Canadian history!

No matter what you decide to do during the day, whether it’s adrenaline-pumping thrill rides down many of our mountainsides, or if it’s a scenic stroll through one of our many parks, the end of the day will be the best part of your day.

Apres activity delights will include your dinner, made your way. Whether you decide to graze on a charcuterie platter or have a full course meal, your taste buds will be delighted either way.

 

End the day off right with a dip in the outdoor hot tub and a glass of wine in front of the fireplace. Your body will need the recovery time and we have the right prescription for how to rest up after a long day!

 

Your Spring Break will be the best one yet, especially after the last two years. We all need to take some time and enjoy life. We know you’ll love your time here

When you choose to spend your holidays at Bison Lodge, you are choosing to celebrate in all the beauty of a true Canadian winter. Snowfalls abound, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are blanketed with layers of snow that allow you to experience a real white Christmas.

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.
