Living & Working at Revelstoke 

Of the British Columbia ski resort towns, Revelstoke is the small, but lively, locals town packed with cool little bars and great music scene. It has a typical interior British Columbia big mountain vibe - people are there for the backcountry...  you'll meet some gnarly skiers and boarders here! Less touristy than other spots, Revelstoke is a great place to use as a base and travel to other amazing resorts nearby such as Kicking Horse in Golden.
