Revelstoke overview

When is the best time to fly to Revelstoke?

Many come to Revelstoke during the months of December, January and February to enjoy the incredible snow sports offered at mountain resorts throughout town. Conversely, the warmest months of June, July and August also tend to draw visitors looking for family-friendly fun when the kids are out of school. Both of these seasons are popular with tourists and make for great times to visit Revelstoke. It can be cheaper to visit Revelstoke during the shoulder season months of March, April, October and November, when fewer tourists can equal cheaper fares.
