Revelstoke Museum Receives Fundung For Tour

The Revelstoke Heritage Railway Society received CAN $26,000 from the Canadian government to take its Chinese Legacies exhibition on tour throughout Canada. The exhibit covers the experiences of the more than 15,000 Chinese workers who worked on building the Canadian Pacific Railway. The tour will stop at the Exporail in Quebec, the Port Moody Station Museum, the Prince George Railway and Forestry Museum in British Columbia and the Copperbelt Mining and Railway Museum in Whitehorse. Canada Heliskiing
While Revelstoke is better known in these times for its awe-inspiring backcountry skiing, its history is very much centered upon the railway. As a result, many of the heritage sites and museums here in Revelstoke are to some extent about trains. However, there is plenty of other history and culture to be experienced here, as well as many adventure activities for both summer and winter time. For the summer vacations, there is mountain biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, fishing, golf and much more. In the winter, of course, there is that famous B.C. powder enjoyed by countless skiers and snowboarders. Canada Heli Skiing
If you decide to visit during the winter for an epic winter sport experience, Mica Heli Guides is the best way to access the delightful backcountry here in Revelstoke. Mica offers tours of its 177,000+ acre tenure, every year from December until April. Mica offers only tours of small groups (3-4 people), catering to a maximum of four groups at a time. This means loads of first tracks, and guarantees no long lines. Even better than skipping the long lines, is the terrain you get to ski. Their territory is spread across eight different valleys, offering glacier runs, alpine ridges and bowls, pillow lines, and naturally-gladed tree skiing. Their lodge is the ideal place to relax after a great day on the slopes. It is remotely situated, and only accessible by helicopter. This provides you with your own private piece of B.C. wilderness. With top-notch safety, service, terrain, and snow, it is no wonder that Mica Heli is one of the premier destinations for heliskiing. Make sure to book now if you're interested, as many of their tours for this season have already filled up. Powder catskiing
