I had one day to do something on the bigger side in Revelstoke. My original intention was to drive up the long Meadows in the Sky Parkway in Mount Revelstoke National Park and then do a hike from up there. After reading about closures and bear warnings I quickly went into recovery mode to come up with another place to play. It did not take long to decide, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, that's the place.
There were two gondolas that I needed to ride to get to the top where the hiking trails are. This was the view as I walked away from the gondola and headed for the trail head for The Stoke. The Stoke is a new trail that just opened this summer.
Everything was new up here.
This map shows the route and gives a short story.
green for easy
It was the easy Cupcake Trail that lead the way to where the blue intermediate Stoke Trail began.
It was such a treat to be experiencing everything in mint condition.
I am ready to get stoked!

I don't feel I had enough of Golden, Roger's Pass or of Revelstoke. These places need to go back onto my to do list as there are many more hike options to attack. But, life goes on and tomorrow I hit the road again. I am excited for what tomorrow and the days after bring.
