Welcome to the epicentre of Canadian mountain sledding.
Revelstoke has some of the best alpine and trail riding snowmobiling areas in the world. With annual snowfalls of 12-18 metres (40-60 feet) pretty much guaranteeing face shots, moderate winter temperatures, a huge variety of terrain to suit any level and a strong sense of camaraderie among riders, Revelstoke snowmobiling is some of the world’s finest. That’s the reason why some of the world’s top snowmobiling pros call this place home. If you're a beginner when it comes to backcountry travel, check out Avalanche Canada's "Start Here" Page.
Pick up the basics and have someone lead the way by booking a guided tour. Ride solo or opt for a double and get a handle on the sport.
If you're an experienced rider and have a handle on avalanche equipment and terrain, head to the groomed access and Frisby or Boulder. The trails take you into the alpine playground. Make sure you pay your trail fees and check the avalanche bulletin before heading out.
There are tons of options for experienced riders in Revelstoke. Check out the open ridge tops and deep powder waiting for you on Sale Mountain, Keystone-Standard Basin or Mount Hall. Watch for caribou closures.
Know before you go
You’re responsible for your own safety when heading out into the backcountry.
Avalanche Canada is Canada’s National Public Avalanche Safety Organization, and is based right here in Revelstoke.
Before you venture out, read their avalanche forecasts for the North Columbia, South Columbia, and Glacier National Park.
Everyone in your group needs to carry avalanche safety equipment (transceiver, shovel and probe), and know how to use it. An Avalanche Skills Training (AST) course is your place to start and is a must for everyone recreating in the backcountry or slackcountry.
