Come experience what makes Revelstoke a great place to explore with your family.
Revelstoke family fun is in full swing! The magnificent mountain scenery and the enormous amounts of snow that fall here during the winter is what really puts Revelstoke on the map, but there are so many more attractions that make Revelstoke one of the best places to live, explore, and experience with your family.
In the winter months, head to Turtle Creek at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, which features a magic carpet for beginner skiers, and a tubing area that is sure to keep your little ones entertained. After a day outdoors, hit the Revelstoke Aquatic Centre – a world class facility with a beautiful pool, slide, hot tub sauna, steam room, and lazy river.
Round up the GT racers and head out to the Mount Revelstoke Nels Nelsen ski jump area for a great toboggan run. Alternatively, nordic skiing at Mount Macpherson is a great place to visit with the family. Bring some hot chocolate in a thermos for a treat at the Sandberg Cabin.
Summer adventures abound in Revelstoke during our warmer months. On a hot day, nothing beats the local swimming hole at Williamson’s Lake, just 5km from downtown Revelstoke. West of town, we recommend The Enchanted Forest, SkyTrek Adventure Park, and 3 Valley Gap; these activity spots are great for kids of all ages with varying degrees of adventure. Revelstoke Mountain Resort has a brand new mountain coaster, The Pipe, which opened in Spring 2016. Kids big and small will enjoy this exhilarating ride!
