Skiing in Revelstoke, February 2013 - Photos mostly by Mike O'Brien, text and design by Marthe Bijman
ISBN: 978-1-927783-00-9
We like Revelstoke. It's about 7 hours' drive from Coquitlam, via Highway 1, north from Mission to Kamloops, then east through Salmon Arm and winding passes to the town next to the railway. We like it because it's a real, working town. It doesn't have many aspirations to glamour.
Nowadays, rich people are buying condos and building mansions on the slopes. Part of me wishes that the resort development is successful and that it continues to grow. The other part of me wishes that it will always be a bit obscure so that there will never be the crowds like at Whistler, or these days, Cypress.
Yet, down-town, where the old railway houses, like little wooden jewellery boxes, sit propped up in the snow, the heart of Revelstoke will always beat just as it has done for centuries. And we, the visitors, will pass on through, leaving nothing but ski tracks in the snow.
