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. 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 has rental equipment and a daily trail pass is just $11 for an adult . Grab your friends (and your dog) and head on out!
4. Picnic with a view!
Does anything taste better than a warm hot chocolate and a yummy treat while looking at the stunning Columbia valley? Hit one of the awesome coffee shops in town for supplies, then travel up the road in Mount Revelstoke National Park. Meadows in the Sky Parkway is open for winter day use up to the Monashee viewpoint.

5. Snowshoe Tours with Revelstoke Snowshoe Company
Maybe skis aren’t for you, but the call of the backcountry is still strong. Revelstoke Showshoe Company has the thing. Tours run daily and cater to a variety of fitness and experience levels. Enjoy the peace of the wilderness and let Pete and his guides show you the local flora and fauna along the way.
6. Mt Begbie Brewing Tours
Revelstoke isn’t just home to world class skiing- our beers are world class too! Visit Mt Begbie Brewing’s new space, taste the beers and learn how they make their award winning brews.
7. Distillery Tours
Monashee Spirits Craft Distillery and Jones Distilling are both somewhat new to the Revelstoke scene, but they are making a big impact. Distilled using only local and sustainable ingredients, they are both growing their selections of spirits. Book into the tasting bar and find out what they have to offer.
8. Stargazing with Columbia Stars
