Welcome to the Second Annual Best of Revelstoke readers’ survey results

More than 1,100 people responded to the second annual Best of Revelstoke survey. Check out the results here.

The view of Mount Begbie from RMR is Revelstoke's favourite.

Well, it appears we may have hit on something with the Best of Revelstoke reader’s survey.

This year, 1,108 of you filled out the survey — a huge increase over the 293 responses we got last year. The response was overwhelming. It’s so big, that I’m tempted to call the survey scientific, except not everyone answered every question (there were 50 of them) and many, if not all, categories are, at their heart, a popularity contest.

We call it Best of Revelstoke, but it could be Revelstoke’s Favourites. ‘Best of’ just has a bette ring to it.

I’d like to apologize to the people and businesses that were left off the multiple choice lists. We tried our best to include everyone, but there were some oversights, like not including Bette’s under Best Clothing Store, or Zala’s under Best Fine Dining. It wasn’t deliberate — I just forgot, and the response was so rapid, that by the time I realized the omissions, it was too late to add them. Of course, that’s why I included an ‘Other’ option.

There are a few things we can say for certain. The Village Idiot has the best pizza. Second, the Big Eddy Pub has the best wings. Both have won those categories easily two years running. There are other two time winners, but those are the most convincing.

Lots of other categories were much closer. For some, especially those involving people, there were dozens of names entered, which is a testament to the many great people in this community.

Thank you for everyone who took part. The winners get bragging rights and a certificate they can put on their wall. The runners-up can start concocting plans to win next year.
