The City of Revelstoke, through access to the Resort Municipality Infrastructure Program funding, and in collaboration with the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and Columbia Basin Trust, is pleased to announce the official opening of the Revelstoke Snowmobile Welcome Centre. The Centre is located at 4177 Westside Road in Revelstoke.
"This facility is important for so many reasons, including attracting visitors who will contribute to our economy, keeping all users safe and promoting environmental awareness and stewardship," said Lynda Lafleur, Community Relationship Manager, Columbia Basin Trust. "We are honoured to be a part of this, and we thank all partners for their efforts and contributions, particularly the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club for overseeing this project from idea to completion."
The Revelstoke Snowmobile Welcome Centre will provide a great entry point to a large snowmobile area in the community that attracts tens of thousands of tourists every year. The Revelstoke Snowmobile Society has been working for many years on this project, and many hours of volunteer work has been put in to make this Centre a reality. In addition to providing a venue to welcome snowmobile visitors to the community, the Centre will also provide facilities for equipment storage for the Club.
