Wander through a winter wonderland.

 Snowshoeing is one of the best ways to explore Revelstoke in the winter. Wander through giant forests, check out the subalpine or walk by the riverside. Our epic snowfalls mean that access to some wilderness areas is limited, but a pair of snowshoes allow you the freedom to explore. Bring your own equipment, rent in town or book a guided tour. Before heading out, make sure to check with the Visitor Information Centre about avalanche terrain and conditions. If you're a beginner when it comes to backcountry travel, check out Avalanche Canada's "Start Here" Page.

Start with a guided tour at Revelstoke Mountain Resort with the Revelstoke Snowshoe Company, or try the trails around the Illecillewaet Greenbelt. From downtown, you can also follow Mount Revelstoke National Park's Tournament of Champions trail.


Head to Begbie Falls, which is often frozen in the winter. Park at the beginning of the Begbie Falls Forest Service Road and follow the trail about 2.5 km from there. Another great option is to park at the gate of Mount Revelstoke National Park and head for Inspiration Woods or the Soren Sorensen loop.


If you're looking for more challenging terrain, be aware of avalanches and avalanche conditions. Make sure you visit avalanche.ca for current conditions. Mount Revelstoke National Park's Summit Trail will offer plenty of challenge as you wind up the slopes through snow forest.
