Revelstoke makes USA Today’s top 10 Best Ski Towns

A USA Today reader’s poll has selected Revelstoke as one of the best ski towns.

The poll, which wrapped up on Nov. 20, awarded Revelstoke sixth place.

“What makes a great ski town?” a poll description asks. “Some would say it’s convenient access to the slopes, for others, maybe it’s the variety of restaurants, bars, shops and accommodations. Yet others might gravitate toward a small town vibe or historic atmosphere.”

The best ski town? Well, according to USA Today readers, that’s North Conway, New Hampshire.

Nelson, the only other Canadian locale to make the top 10, was second.

Revelstoke came in between Telluride, Colorado (fifth) and Sandpoint, Idaho (seventh).

“This well-preserved Victorian town not only offers easy access to the biggest lift-accessed vertical in North America, it oozes a sense of history,” the contest’s description of Revelstoke says. “Established as part of the Canadian Pacific railroad, the compact town also boasts many heritage buildings and a thriving artist community–there’s even a public Art Walking Tour. Outdoor recreation abounds year round.”

Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s Sutton Place Hotel was also up for an award in the Best Ski Hotel category, but finished outside the top 10.
