SUMMER

With average temperatures of 25 to 30 degrees Celsius (75 to 85 Fahrenheit), Revelstoke heats up and you’ll see this quaint mountain town in a whole different light.

Being surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes, Revelstoke is a summer recreation paradise.   Enjoy world class mountain biking, paragliding, fishing, rock climbing, and boating.  Or, get up the alpine from Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks, which have networks of beautiful trails to explore.

In the summer, we like to beat the heat by whitewater rafting on the Illicillewaet River, or standup paddle boarding on Lake Revelstoke.  We recommend not missing a round at the Revelstoke Golf Club, a championship golf course bordered by the Columbia River.

Live music nightly in the Grizzly Plaza entertains our town and visitors through the summer months and Saturday’s Farmer’s Market draws vendors from the surrounding centres, offering up a bounty of organic produce and local crafts and textiles.  A true small town experience.

REVELSTOKE MOUNTAIN RESORT

From Bison Lodge, simply stroll down the short hiking trail Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s village base and choose your adventure for the day: hiking, biking, coaster rides, and heli adventures are all part of the summer fun at RMR.

Take a gondola ride up to the Revelation Lodge for their delicious brunch and take in the views of the Columbia Basin and the surrounding mountain ranges.    Work off brunch with a hike through the alpine wildflowers or go for a ride on the new mountain coaster.

Explore the peaks and valleys with RMR’s Selkirk Tangiers heli operation which offers incredible sightseeing from the bird’s eye view, with options to go on a guided heli hike, bike, mountaineer or glacier trek.

Revelstoke is quickly gaining a reputation for its world class biking and is on the ‘must do’ list for mountain bikers in the know.
