2021 and covid-19.
Due to continuing precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 your Revelstoke experience may look a little different this fall, and we want to help you prepare in order to make your trip safe, fun and memorable.
Throughout the pandemic, tourism businesses have continued to implement stringent protocols to keep staff and visitors safe and will continue to do so at every stage—including the latest requirement to verify proof of vaccination for guests (where applicable), and visitors are asked to return the favour by travelling responsibly.
Proof of vaccination is required for those 12 and older to access certain social and recreational events and businesses to help protect people from COVID-19. Read ahead to find out what to expect when discovering our town, going out for dinner, exploring our outdoor spaces or visiting Revelstoke Mountain Resort.
