What local snowmobilers say about Revelstoke, B.C.

Frisby Ridge boasts excellent snowfall, and forest scenery that makes for tremendous photo ops. Be careful if you're a beginner - the powder on either side of the groomed trail can be armpit-deep and difficult to get out of.

“(Frisby Ridge) has really nice views...and on a really nice day you can see all of the surrounding mountains. It’s kind of the best of both worlds. A lot of times the snow around here is so deep that you need to stick to the main areas.” - Rob Alford, pro snowmobiler.

"People come to Revelstoke to ride the alpine. Boulder (Mountain) has deep snow, great terrain, lots of fun play areas and great viewpoints. From a lot of areas you can look at the whole valley, where it is mountain range upon mountain range as far as you can see." - Angela Threatful, executive director of the Snowmobile Revelstoke Society
