Mount Revelstoke Steamer

Aug. 25, 7:30 a.m.

This year we’ll be mixing things up with a mass start format. Registration is now open at Zone4. With the change to a mass start format and the increasing popularity of the event, we expect to sell out this year. What: Mass start road race up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway in Mt. Revelstoke National Park. Course Details: This year staging will be at the Nels Nelsen parking, with a neutral roll out back to the parkway. The 25 km course climbs 1,400 metres 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 per cent, 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. It is truly a memorable climb!

Ginger St. James

Aug. 29, 7 p.m.

The Last Drop

The Trainwreck Two – Ginger St. James and SnowHeel Slim join forces with Eve Hell and Howlin’ Pete to make up a furious quartet blazing out two full sets of Country, blues and rock n’ roll.
