Not Here To Ski? Here’s 7 Fun Things To Do In Revelstoke (Without The Slopes)
Sandwiched between the Selkirk and Monashee mountain ranges, Revelstoke can’t help but be a ski town. Its miles of untouched powder fields and breathtaking vertical terrain make Revelstoke a snow sport lovers’ paradise. Since introducing the first ski jump in North American in 1915, Revelstoke has built its reputation as a reliably spectacular destination for heli and cat skiing, lift skiing, cross-country skiing and more. Skiing, skiing, skiing.
