REVELSTOKE

Population:  7,139
Elevation: 480 meters (1,570 ft.)

Main Industries: Forestry, Transportation, and Tourism / Hospitality
A sense of history plus modern conveniences and activities describes this community nestled in the shadows of the imposing mountains of the Selkirk Range between Mt. Revelstoke National Park and Glacier National Park.

Often referred to as the gem of the Columbia Mountains, Revelstoke began in the 1880s as a transportation and supply center for the mining industry. This was soon bolstered by the construction of the trans-continental railway, and the subsequent decision of the Canadian Pacific Railway to establish its main operations offices and maintenance facilities. The railway played a large part in Revelstoke’s development. Its completion was funded by one Lord Revelstoke, who subsequently influenced the name of the town. More information about the railway and Revelstoke can be viewed at the Railway Museum.

Revelstoke is developing into an all season playground. Outdoor adventures take advantage of the areas breathtaking scenery, with back country hiking, ski touring, heli-skiing, snowmobiling, downhill skiing, snowboarding, camping, biking, river rafting, boating, rowing, canoeing, and kayaking. Revelstoke also has an 18-hole golf course, bowling lanes, fitness centres, tennis courts, skating arena, curling rink, and aquatic centre. The area boasts two national parks, three provincial parks, several municipal parks, hot spring developments, and an abundance of camping opportunities. From Revelstoke you can take short trips north or south to experience even more adventures. To the north on Highway 23 you can visit Downie Provincial Park, Martha Creek Provincial Park, and the famous Revelstoke Dam. A journey south on Highway 23 will take you to Blanket Creek Provincial Park and the scenic Arrow Lakes.

The nearby Purcell and Selkirk Mountains are world renowned for their soft deep powder snow (average of 60 feet yearly) that attracts those who want to experience heli-skiing or cat-skiing, downhill or cross country skiing. These and other winter activities can be experienced while enjoying the spectacular mountain scenery in the “Powder Snow Capital of Canada”.

Recreation Facilities & Activities: Fishing, hiking, horseback riding, mountain-biking; photography, boat tours, whitewater rafting, 18-hole championship public golf course, aquatic centre, snowmobiling, heli, cat, cross country and downhill skiing.

Local Attractions: Railway Museum, 3 Valley Gap historical site, the Enchanted Forest, Nickelodeon Museum, glaciers, giant cedar stands, Revelstoke Dam (Canada’s highest concrete dam at 175 meters), Mount Glacier, and Revelstoke National Parks.

Area Weather: Weather in the Revelstoke region develops as a result of warm moisture-laden air from the Pacific being deflected upwards by the Columbia Mountains. The cooling of this air mass brings significant precipitation to the Columbia’s, particularly during the winter months. The mean annual precipitation is 1278mm (50in) at Revelstoke, 1995mm (79in) in the subalpine zone. Variations in daily weather reflect the variety of topography throughout the Columbia Mountains. December and January are typically the snowiest months while July and August are the warmest months.

Revelstoke has many attractions that will appeal to the entire family!

History and Hydroelectric Operation

Revelstoke Dam is Canada’s second generating project on the Columbia River and one of four dams in B.C. that regulate the flow of the Columbia. Three of the dams; Mica, Hugh Keenleyside and Duncan were built as a result of the Columbia River Treaty, signed by Canada and the United States in 1964. The Treaty Dams provided badly needed flood control, made possible development of power plants on the Columbia and its tributaries in B.C. and increased the potential for power generation at plants in the United States.

Mica, completed in 1973, is the largest of the Treaty projects and the only one in Canada to generate power. Located about 135 km by road north of Revelstoke, Mica has an installed capacity of 1,736,000 kW. Gordon M. Shrum Generating Station on the Peace River is the largest hydroelectric plant in British Columbia, with a capacity of 2,416,000 kW.

The regulation of the Columbia River by the three Treaty dams in Canada has provided the essential storage needed to create additional hydroelectric generating potential on the river and made the Revelstoke development possible.

The Revelstoke Generating Station, located about 130 km downstream from Mica, has an installed capacity of 1,843,000 kW with provision for an ultimate capacity of 2,764,500 kW. This would make it the most powerful hydroelectric development in British Columbia.

Information about the Revelstoke Dam

The hydroelectric complex comprises a 175 m high concrete gravity dam in Little Dalles Canyon, a 122 m high earth-fill dam on the west bank of the river and a powerhouse in the riverbed, immediately downstream of the concrete dam.
The powerhouse has four large generating units, in service since 1984. Each unit has a capacity of 460,750 kW. There is provision to add two more units when required. Individually the units have the largest capacity of any in Hydro’s system. The concrete powerhouse is 213 m long, 50 m wide and 60 m high.

The reservoir, created by the dam, extends 130 km back to the tail-waters of the Mica Dam. It has a surface area of 11,534 ha. Since regulated release water from Mica provides almost three-quarters of the inflow into the reservoir, the Revelstoke power-plant operates as a run-of-the-river plant, with normal maximum fluctuations in the reservoir level of 4.5 metres.

Revelstoke, take the 27 kilometre drive to the summit of Meadows in the Sky Parkway and then coast your bike down enjoying the marvelous sights along the way. Definitely a relaxing way to explore Mt. Revelstoke National Park!
If you are looking for some more challenging riding there are many different areas to go, some taking you to altitudes well over 7000 feet. Try Boulder, standard Basin Trail, Mount Cartier Trail, the Akolkolex Valley, Mount Begbie Falls or the Pingston Lake Area.

With mountain views in all directions and fairways lined with huge cedar and spruce trees, the course is designed to test players of all levels.

This classic layout sits on the site of an old equestrian racetrack. In fact, the one of a kind clubhouse, constructed in 1911, served as headquarters for the races and now offers a unique fully licensed restaurant that will nicely conclude a great day of golf.

The club’s singular value and unique history have been winning over visitors for decades. A pleasant stroll around the Revelstoke Golf Club – still one of BC’s best kept secrets – is a must do on your next North Okanagan Kootenay Rockies golf vacation.

Mt. MacPherson Ski Area
The Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club has worked to develop cross country skiing in Revelstoke. Their main focus is the maintenance and grooming of the Mount MacPherson trails, located 7 kms south of Revelstoke on Highway 23. These trails are typical of the natural beauty of the area. The trail system winds through a demonstration forest using mainly old logging roads. There is a good variety of terrain to suit all types of skiers. Some trails are flat and easy, but there are also some tough climbs and thrilling descents. The old Sandbert Hut, a lovely log cabin on the main loop trail, provides shelter, warmth and a cozy place to have lunch. The cabin is only 2.5 kms from the parking area making it accessible to most skiers. There are also two conveniently located outhouses, one at the cabin and one at the parking area.

Mount Revelstoke
In addition, Parks Canada grooms the Meadows in the Sky Parkway in Mt. Revelstoke National Park up to the Monashee lookout. The trail rises gently but continuously for 7 km and returns the same way. It is groomed with a snowmobile and track setter for classic skiing only.

Columbia River Flats
The Revelstoke Columbia River flats are also a popular spot for cross-country skiers. There are no set trails and no grooming but on a good day, usually in late February and March when the snow is firm, the skiing is great. You can access the flats from many places but most people park near the Equestrian Park and start by following the Illecillewaet River to the flats.


Snowmobiling

Beyond incredible, Revelstoke offers the perfect combination of varied terrain and easy “off-highway” accessibility. With a season that runs from November through June, the snow is always deep and reliable. Find out why up to 18,000 snowmobilers visit each season.

With annual snowfalls of 40 – 60 feet and a wide range of terrain to suit every level of sledder, Revelstoke is a snowmobiler’s dream. With two groomers, trails are kept in good condition throughout the season. Come play with us but be sure to protect your investments; park in well lit spaces and lock them up tight.

‘Snowmobile Trail Maps’ are available at front desk
