Who says you can’t have it all? Certainly not Revelstoke!

Who says you can’t have it all? Certainly not Revelstoke! Nestled in the mountains between Calgary and Vancouver, this home is where the heart is, and so much more.

Revelstoke is a small town with a big backyard. Given its warm summers, mild winters and year-round access to world-class trails minutes from any doorstep, this mountain mecca is a dream destination for adrenaline junkies and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world. Pristine national parks offer hiking trails for all ages and abilities, while an endless supply of rugged backcountry terrain is available to challenge even the most seasoned explorers. Revelstoke Mountain Resort is consistently ranked among the very best ski hills in North America, and it’s no small wonder; with 1,713m of vertical skiing and an annual snowfall of 10m, there’s nothing not to love.

While residents and visitors alike may live for getting up high in the mountains, the town itself remains remarkably grounded. Social programs thrive in this tight-knit community, from environmental sustainability initiatives to festivals and events celebrating cultural diversity and the arts. The local school district is small, student-centered and strongly supported by parents, families, neighbours, and friends. Entrepreneurs enjoy co-op workspaces and high-speed internet, not to mention an entire town full of cheerleaders who can’t wait to spread the word and share the love about locally-grown talent and tradespeople. It’s a feel good kind of place on every possible level.

Ready to make the move? You’re not alone. Revelstoke is in high demand these days. Fortunately, the town is developing to meet the growing population. Mackenzie Village is one such development making it possible to truly live the dream. With a wide variety of home solutions, innovative building designs and contemporary mountain architecture, this mountainside community offers low-maintenance proximity to town while keeping all kinds of outdoor adventure a mere stone’s throw away. This is the best of both worlds, and it’s only getting better.
