Mount Revelstoke Steamer

Event Cost

Event Information

This 26 km climb now starts at the Tournament of Champions Monument on Track St W near the Railway Museum. The course climbs 1450m and finishes near the summit of Mt Revelstoke (taking a right at the Balsam Lake parking lot and continuing to the very end of the pavement). There are few places in North America with such a long sustained climb. The average gradient is not terribly steep at 5.6% but the length makes up for lack of steepness. As you climb from temperate interior rain forest to sub-alpine meadows you are treated to improving views of the Columbia River Valley with the Monashees and Selkirks on either side. The road surface is excellent and the traffic is minimal. Truly a memorable climb!
