Best of Revelstoke 2016 is here

More than 1,000 people responded to the third annual Best of Revelstoke survey.

The cover of the Best of Revelstoke 2016 features fall riding on the Keystone-Standard Basin Trail.

The third annual Best of Revelstoke is in the record books. Once again, we had more than 1,000 respondents and, while we won’t claim the survey is scientific, we still think it’s a pretty good indicator of what the people of Revelstoke love the most.

At it’s heart, the Best of Revelstoke is a popularity contest. We wholeheartedly encouraged vote spamming, though we’re happy to see no one actually did that. We do know some people were very active on Facebook getting their friends to vote for them. We love that, and it leads to some unexpected results. We also really like the answers we got to our open-ended question, “What’s the the one thing in Revelstoke you’d recommend a ski bum do to truly appreciate the town:”

How about a shout out to our three time winners? That’s the 112 Restaurant for Fine Dining, the Big Eddy Pub for Best Bar, High Country Kolsch for Best Mt. Begbie Beer, Grizzly Auto for Best Mechanic, Community Connections for Best Social Non-Profit, Snow Rodeo for Best Run at RMR, Boulder Mountain for Best Snowmobiling Spot, and the Roxy Theatre for Best Place for a First Date.

Of course, we changed up our categories this year, meaning some people or businesses didn’t have a chance for a three-peat. We added categories like Best Home or Hardware Store, Best Guiding Outfit, and Best Poutine, and we divided up our Outdoor categories to recognize more of the recreation opportunities available here.

We tried hard to make the survey as representative of Revelstoke as we can, but that’s not entirely possible. If you feel we missed out on something, let us know.

Congratulations to all the winners! If you won, remember to come by the Review office to pick up your certificate.
