2. Fat Biking

Revelstoke is pretty serious about biking and we don’t let the snow stop us! Rent fat bikes from Tantrum and hit the trails. Or better yet, book a tour with Wandering Wheels, our local bike guide experts.

3. Night time Cross-country Skiing at Mt Macpherson

Mt Macpherson has 26km of groomed Nordic trails and 6km of those are floodlit for night use. The club have rental equipment and trail use costs just $11 for an adult day ticket. So grab your friends (and your dog) and head on out!

      Hello Megan,

      Columbia Stars offer sessions looking at the stars through high powered telescopes. I don’t think they rent them for use outside of their organised sessions, but the sessions are very fun and informative! You can find out more about them here: https://www.facebook.com/columbiastars/

      Hi Peter, thanks for getting in touch. It’s so interesting to hear of other Revelstokes in the world! Our town was founded in the mid 1880s as the Canadian Pacific Railway expanded across Western Canada. It was named for Lord Revelstoke, the head of Baring and Brothers bank at the time, who helped with financing the railway. Prior to becoming Revelstoke, the area had been called Farwell after a local developer. You can find out more info here: http://www.revelstokemuseum.ca/the-history-of-revelstoke/ – we hope that helps, let us know if you have more questions ?
