Grab your shred posse and make your way to powtown.

If you’re looking to escape the city to a mountain town and maximize your opportunity for adventure, look no further. Revelstoke will offer you an incredible experience without having to stress about logistics.

Where to stay.

Revelstoke’s cute downtown is the perfect place to stay for a few nights. You’ll be within walking distance of most of our restaurants, bars, and shops, and Revelstoke Mountain Resort is only a shuttle ride away. There are some great budget accommodations. We recommend the recently renovated Grizz Hotel or The Cube Hotel, both of which are located in the heart of town. 

If you’re traveling with a group, check out Journey’s Perch, which can accommodate a larger number of people. Basecamp Revelstoke is also a great spot for larger groups.

Where to eat.

The quality of Revelstoke’s restaurants is exceptional. You’ll find great options for everyone, whether you’re looking for a casual dinner or something a little more upscale.

Seating larger groups can be tricky, as most places don’t accept reservations. There are a few that do, however, including the 112 Restaurant, the Quartermaster Eatery, The Woolsey Creek Bistro, and Zalas.

For classic Canadiana, head to Chubby Funsters, or try The Village Idiot. The sushi at Kawakubo is absolutely delicious and their private rooms are a great spot to accommodate a party.

Where to drink.

If beer is your thing, you’re in luck. Revelstoke is a beer drinker’s paradise. For local brews, head to Rumpus Beer Company or Mt Begbie Brewing. For a great selection of taps, check out Craft Bierhaus.

The cocktail scene in Revelstoke is taking off. Monashee Spirits Craft Distillery is a must-do for delicious cocktails with cheeky and creative names. Pick up a bottle of their award-winning spirits to take home (or to your hotel). The Quartermaster Eatery and the Old School Eatery also feature excellent cocktail menus.

What to do.

Well, there’s one obvious answer - hit the slopes at Revelstoke Mountain Resort! When you get to the top of the gondola, head left to hit the Stellar Chair. That will give you access to the intermediate terrain on the Ripper Chair, a great place to warm up your legs before heading up top to the Stoke Chair and the alpine bowls. You’ll find no shortage of fun laps at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. To make the most of your day, hit up the First Tracks program!

If you’re looking to have a day away from the ski hill, book a snowmobile tour with Great Canadian Tours. We recommend the mountain sledder, which gives you an opportunity to experience the real thrill of snowmobiling.

The Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club’s trails are a great way to get out and experience the interior rainforest. Glide the afternoon away. If you’re new to the sport, lessons are available.

Beyond Apres.

There’s more to apres than just throwing back drinks (although, admittedly, that’s a key part of it). Take your crew out bowling at The Cabin, where you can enjoy a few bevvies while bowling. Peak Axe Throwing is a great place to host a group. A locals’ favourite option is to don nordic skis and head out to the Ole Sandberg for mulled wine (BYO).
