Summer Sightseeing

New for 2017 - mile-high sightseeing, alpine views, and walking trails are available when you ride the upper Gondola to Mackenzie Outpost!

Glide through treetops to Revelstoke’s most beautiful breakfast view, overlooking the Columbia River as it winds through the lush valley below the towering Monashee Mountains.

Make the most of your experience and combine your visit with a full buffet breakfast at Revelation Lodge at the Gondola mid-station.  Bring your appetite and your camera to capture an unforgettable dining experience!

Dogs are welcome in the village but must remain on a leash at all times. Dogs are not permitted in the gondola.

    Bottoms Up

    Intermediate | 2.9km | ~ 1 hr

    Beginning at the south end of the village, Bottoms Up guides hikers to Revelation Lodge through a series of switchbacks, criss-crossing the glades and meadows of the lower mountain. While the trail is an easy grade it does climb, so be prepared!

    Take it Easy

    Intermediate | 2km | ~ 1 hr

    This shorter trail loops from the top of Bottoms Up to partway up the Sunshine ski run, and back down to Revelation Lodge. We recommend hiking the switchbacks up through the forest and taking the ski run back down.

    Upper Mountain  |  June 30 - Sept 4


    Cupcake Loop

    Beginner | 2.3km | ~ 45 mins

    Cupcake can be accessed from the upper Gondola station, and tracks a figure eight through the subalpine forest, crossing over itself with an elevated bridge. Hikers can choose a short loop or extend the trail further to enjoy views as the trail breaks out of the forest halfway around the extended loop.

    Kill the Banker

    Advanced | 3.7km | ~ 2 hrs

    This trail mirrors Revelstoke's infamous ski run of the same name, with a tough climb through steep and rocky terrain, crossing under the Gondola line and winding through boulder fields. It can be accessed from the Gondola midstation as a climb or the upper Gondola station as a descent. Either way, be prepared and make sure you have plenty of water.

  • Spectacular mountain and valley views are available on the lower mountain, while the upper mountain hosts mile-high views of glaciated peaks.

    Upper Mountain  |  June 30 - Sept 4


    Glacier View

    With a short stroll from Mackenzie Outpost, step out onto a viewing deck pointing towards the Monashees. Glaciated plateaus and rugged peaks stand tall amongst the clouds.

    Revelstoke View

    With a short walk through the forest, access a unique aerial view of Revelstoke. From the top of Kill the Banker's imposing cliffs, you'll see our community nestled amongst the mountains we call home.
