Where is Revelstoke?

The town of Revelstoke is located in southeastern British Columbia, just off the Trans Canada Highway, 641km east of Vancouver (7 hour drive) and 413km west of Calgary (4.75 hour drive).

The mountains surrounding Revelstoke are an epicenter of heli skiing and cat skiing. To the east and southeast of Revelstoke are the Selkirk Mountains (known for Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing). To the west of Revelstoke is Eagle Pass (known for Eagle Pass Heli Skiing), which heads through to the Monashee Mountains (home to Mustang Powder cat skiing).

The base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort is located on Camozzi Rd, 6km southeast of downtown Revelstoke BC.

Flying to Revelstoke

The Revelstoke airport is just for private planes and charters. The most common gateway is Kelowna Airport (YLW), which is 199km (2 hours) southwest of Revelstoke BC. Kelowna Airport has direct service from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Edmonton, Seattle and Los Angeles (United).

The Kamloops Airport (YKA) is 226km (2.5 hour drive) west of Revelstoke. This regional airport has daily flights to and from Vancouver and Calgary.

From the airport it’s possible to get a shuttle (see below) and do without a car once in Revelstoke. However having a rental car will provide a lot more flexibility, particularly if you’re staying on-mountain at Sutton Place Hotel. You can search for good deals on car rental here.

Driving to Revelstoke

The drive to Revelstoke BC from the east (from Calgary or Kicking Horse near Golden) comes via the spectacular Rogers Pass. This incredibly avalanche prone road passes in and out of tunnels and is subject to closure, so you may need to build some flexibility into your itinerary. This stretch of road is notoriously dangerous, and the many trucks on the road make it feel more intimidating. As you drive towards Revelstoke, don’t forget to turn your watch back one hour.

The drive in from the west (if coming from Kelowna or Silver Star) is pretty easy through the scenic Okanagan Valley. This road can also sometimes close, so it’s advisable to check road conditions at Drive BC.

The drive from the south (for those cat skiing near Meadow Creek or Nelson) is also very picturesque and it involves an Upper Arrow Lakes Ferry trip.

To get to Revelstoke Mountain Resort from town, head southeast on 4th street and cross the railway tracks. Further along 4th street cross the bridge where 4th street becomes Airport Way. Turn left onto Nichol Rd and then turn right onto Camozzi Rd, which leads to the base of the ski resort. Alternatively just plug the address (2950 Camozzi Rd Revelstoke) into the GPS!

For overnight guests there’s underground parking at Sutton Place Hotel. For day trippers there’s lots of free outdoor parking that’s only a short walk to the gondola.
