Mt. Revelstoke National Park

Mount Revelstoke National Park features immense contrasts, from lush rainforest and 1,000 year old trees to imposing mountain peaks and is famous for summer wildflower displays on the summit of Mount Revelstoke. Each year the meadows of the upper subalpine zone blossom into brilliant colour by the middle of August. It was the beauty of these meadows, so near to their town, that inspired a group of people in Revelstoke to lobby for the creation of the national park in 1914.

At the same time, skiing was booming as a popular activity. Mount Revelstoke's ski jump was one of the first in Canada and was internationally renowned as one of the finest natural jumps in the world. Several world ski jumping records were set here.

We got here before the shuttle bus commenced at 1000hrs so we just walked the 20 mins or so up to the summit and then did all of the shorter trails around the summit area. It was a beautiful, sunny...
