Revelstoke, B.C., is one of the planet’s top places to go snowmobiling. But where would it be without the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club (RSC)?
Started in 1968, the RSC is one of the oldest and largest registered snowmobile clubs in B.C. With a core group of volunteers and over 700 members, the RSC provides a strong voice and an organized place to ride for local sledders and those who come from across the continent and beyond to experience its legendary snow depths and terrain.
Speaking of terrain, the club has two, well-established riding areas (Boulder Mountain and Frisby Ridge), which are groomed on a regular basis. Both zones have cabins—one that includes an on-the-mountain food service. In total, there are 12 different areas to ride around Revelstoke, and the club has applied to maintain an additional four of those areas.
Over the years, the RSC has continued to improve its sledding infrastructure. Recent upgrades include construction of a 4,000-square-foot Snowmobile Welcome Centre and groomer storage building.
Join the celebration
Five decades of organized snowmobiling has brought the RSC to where it is today—and that’s something worth celebrating. On March 23 to 25, 2018, the club is having a formal celebration of its 50th anniversary. The weekend will include a dinner and banquet on Friday and a club ride on Sunday. Nearly every past club president will be in attendance, which means there will be lots of history and stories to be shared.
In addition, the RSC will be hosting the British Columbia Snowmobile Federation’s Annual General Meeting, Excellence Awards and Gala; this will take place on Saturday.
