Photos of Revelstoke, British Columbia, in winter. 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. 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.
