Caribou Artists' Cabin Program
© Nancy Lambert
Mount Revelstoke National Park now offers artists a unique opportunity for individual artists to stay and create on the mountain, without the need to drive back to town at night. The Caribou Artists' Cabin is nestled high on Mount Revelstoke, 1200 meters (4000 ft) above the valley below. The Meadows in the Sky Parkway leads right past the cabin’s front porch.
The artists' cabin is set among towering subalpine fir and Englemann spruce trees, less than a ten minute drive from the top of the mountain. Caribou Cabin gives artists an opportunity to experience the magical Selkirk sunrises and Monashee sunsets from the solitude of the Mount Revelstoke summit. Overnight, there isn't a light visible on any horizon at the cabin and the Milky Way brightens the sky.
The Caribou Artists' Cabin is a rustic log cabin, with wood heat, gas lights and a two storey outhouse! The cabin is well-supplied – artists only need to bring their sleeping bag, water and food, and paints and canvases (or notepad, guitar, clay, laptop, camera, trumpet and yarn).
Artists renting the cabin will also have access to the Balsam Studio, just below the mountain summit. It’s a great place to work if the weather’s not perfect. To help artists stay on budget, the cabin and studio together rent for just $22.00.
In 2016, the Caribou Artists' Cabin will be available August and September.
To reserve, please call 250-837-7552.
