Cool And Refreshing Summer Fun

 

True Mountain Biking In Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is situated in the Canadian Rockies near the Monashee and Selkirk Mountain Ranges. In the winter this is prime skiing and snowboarding territory, but in the summer, the receding snow lines offer up numerous other outdoor activities. One of the more popular activities is mountain biking. In Revelstoke, you can put as much of the mountain into mountain biking as you like. Prefer a leisurely ride around the town's greenbelt or along the Columbia River? That can be easily arranged and done.

The View From Above Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a typical Canadian mountain town in many ways. First, it dates back from the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Second, the first people drawn to the town were involved in the mining or timber business, or both. Third, it is a Mecca for B.C. powder seekers. As many skiers and snowboarders have moved from the resorts into the backcountry, they have increasingly used helicopters to get there.

While The Bears Are Sleeping

In few months time, the bears will be sleeping. Unless you’re currently studying bears, or have a particular affinity for them, this is probably not a terribly interesting fact. However, if you're an avid skier or snowboarder, it does signify something much more noteworthy: if the bears are sleeping, it means winter has arrived. Of course that means that Revelstoke, British Columbia is covered in beautiful white snow. With the arrival of winter, tours into the vast backcountry of B.C. commence.

Revelstoke Railway Days Starts Today

Revelstoke Railway Days, the annual celebration of everything train here in Revelstoke, British Columbia, starts today. Revelstoke has a long history with rail, and indeed owes its existence to the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1880s. This year's event is packed with things to do all the way up until the last day. The celebration will last August 12th through August 17th. This year, the event is also being held in collaboration with Timer Days, resulting in many forestry demonstrations being held throughout the commemoration.

Heliskiing and Inclement Weather

Going into the backcountry with the aid of a helicopter is one of the greatest inventions in the history of skiing. It is certainly the premier way to get truly spectacular lines. However, the surest way to have a heliskiing vacation ruined is if the weather turns so bad that the helicopter can’t fly you into the backcountry. This is one of the most important factors to consider when booking your next vacation. Also to avoid that unfortunate problem, be sure to book your adventure with Mica Heli Guides, located in Revelstoke, British Columbia.

ATVing in Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is an outdoor paradise. In the summer there is plenty of hiking, biking, and fishing, and in the winter there is, of course, epic skiing and snowboarding. While these seemingly unending summer months usually attract mountain bikers to the slopes, another great way to enjoy the wilderness is venturing out on an ATV. There are literarily hundreds of miles of trails to explore in the area. Ride through valleys, along creeks and travel up into the mountain heights.

Hiking The Highlands Of Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a world-renowned destination for skiing and snowboarding. Though the snow may have retreated to the upper reaches of the Selkirk, Monashee, and the Canadian Rockies, that doesn't mean there’s nothing left to do on these spectacular slopes. Hiking the area around Revelstoke is just as epic as the skiing. Hiking trails abound here, so you can be sure there is something for everyone. There are a multitude of other summer activities as well here in Revelstoke.

Dreaming Of White Champagne Powder

We've now moved on to August, the halfway month between the beginning and end of the ski season. The good news is that there is less time to wait (roughly four months and counting). The bad news is that it is still summer and the only snow visible is away on the tippy tops of the mountains. Other than visiting the Southern Hemisphere, or really high mountains, the only way to find the snow you crave is in your dreams. Canada Heliskiing
