Things to do Revelstoke Mountain Resort in Summer

Revelstoke Coaster

The Revelstoke coaster is the big draw to Revelstoke Mountain in the summer, allowing those non-mountain bikers to experience the thrill of a 1.4 km drop down the hill, reaching speeds of up to 42 km/h.

Because the coaster is so popular, if you have the chance, go in the morning. We did not and there was a wait of almost 2 hours. But that did not worry us. We checked in, got our Play All day passes and then took the Revelation Gondola up the mountain for a late lunch at the Mackenzie Outpost.

At the top of the Revelation Gondola, the kids could have ran around and explored for hours if we had had the time. The alpine landscape is very different than lower down the mountain. The alpine is full of loose rock and is located at over 1600m. The views of Revelstoke below and the surrounding mountains are stunning!

After lunch, our time had come up for the coaster, so we hopped into the queue (of just 5 people) and had our first coaster ride. The Resort has put together an awesome system to avoid giant queues on the hill. There are big screens with numbers on them and when your numbers come up, you can get into the line. This keeps the coaster at capacity without a big queue. If you have a play-all-day pass, you can use your second coaster ride right away, or save it for a bit later.

Axe Throwing

Try for the bullseye at Revelstoke Mountain axe throwing. Guests aged 10 and up can throw as part of the Play All day pass. Otherwise, it costs $10 to throw.

AXE THROWING WAS A HIT FOR MY KIDS. KIDS NEED TO BE 10 YEARS OLD AND GET 10 THROWS AS A PART OF THE PLAY ALL DAY PASS.

Frisbee Golf

A hit for all ages, the frisbee golf course is also included in the play all day passes. If you do not have a pass, you can rent a frisbee for $10 from the rental shop.

THE FRISBEE GOLF AT REVELSTOKE MOUNTAIN IS PERFECT FOR ALL AGES AND TAKES LESS THAN AN HOUR! WEAR GOOD SHOES, THERE ARE A LOT OF UNEVEN PATCHES AND YOU MAY HAVE TO GO LOOKING FOR YOUR FRISBEE!

Aerial Adventure Course

Not for those who are afraid of heights, the Aerial Adventure Course takes climbers 4 stories above the ground to conquer elements and repel down from the top!

WHILE MOST OF OUR KIDS WERE OLD ENOUGH TO TRY THIS, THE CLIMBING ELEMENTS ARE VERY WOBBLY. I WOULD NOT SUGGEST IT FOR KIDS UNDER 10 UNLESS THEY REALLY LOVE THIS KIND OF STUFF. IT IS PERFECT FOR TEENAGERS AND ADULTS!

Mountain Biking

The Revelstoke Mountain Bike park has green, blue and black diamond trails for all levels of bikers. The green runs are mostly from the midpoint of the mountain.

What to Pack for Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Sunscreen – As important in the summer as in the winter (whose burns from the reflection on the snow are no joke). Makre sure you pack sunscreen.

Bug Spray – the mosquitos can be bad, especially in the alpine and at dusk! Ensure you have good bug spray (not the crappy kids kind.) Get yourself some with feet.

Rainjacket Even in the summer months, it can be rainy in almost any part of British Columbia. A rain jacket takes up very little room and can come in handy. Gortex is the best when it comes to rain gear but anything made of Gortex is more expensive (but worth it!)

Comfortable Shoes – if you plan on hiking or even just exploring the resort, you are going to want comfortable footwear.

Bathing Suit – The Sutton Place has a pool, so pack your bathing suit!
