Are the wildfires affecting Revelstoke?
August 20 2018
Although British Columbia is combatting countless wildfires across the province, Revelstoke is fortunate enough to remain largely unaffected.
While there are some fires in the area, they currently do not pose a threat to residents or travellers in Revelstoke. Here at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, it's business as usual. We're not going to hide the fact that our views are a little less glamorous and our air quality isn't pristine, but there is still plenty of fun to be had. The Pipe Mountain Coaster is unaffected by the smoky conditions and requires little physical exertion. The Pipe Mountain Coaster is open daily from 8am until 7:30pm from now through September 3, and from 9am until 5pm between September 4 and October 8. Our hiking trails and upper Gondola are also open daily from 8:30am until 5pm until September 3.
