As snow starts to dust the tops of the mountains in and around Revelstoke, it's easy to think that the trail running season is coming to an end. We nostalgically remember the summer of endless trail stoke, hot sun shining on dewy mornings and warm evenings hugging a pink skied backdrop.
It's a toss up between the breathtaking views, the quaint cafes, the smiling people and the tight-knit community, but perhaps one of the most incredible things about Revelstoke is how quickly you can access the mountains.
