Mount Revelstoke National Park is open year-round, but visitor facilities are closed by snow from October to May. Please check the Trail Conditions Report for daily updates.

Meadows in the Sky Parkway

The Meadows in the Sky Parkway is a 26 km road which climbs from 400 metres above sea level to an elevation of 2000 metres. Snow lingers into July or August at the higher elevations and road openings are dependent upon snow-melt.

At low elevations, the Parkway is open from May to October. The season is much shorter at the summit of the mountain, usually mid-late July to late September. Please check with park staff or our Twitter feed for up-to-date conditions and hours when you arrive.

Meadows in the Sky Parkway Entrance Station hours of operation:

 May 16 - June 12  9:00 am – 5:00 pm Daily
 June 13 - September 2  8:00 am – 5:00 pm Daily

The parkway closes to uphill traffic at 5:30 p.m., but downhill traffic can exit the parkway until 8:30 p.m. May-August, 6:30 p.m. in September and 5:30 p.m. in October

Summit Shuttle Service

When the mountain-top area is snow-free, the Summit Shuttle Bus transports visitors between the Balsam Lake parking lot and the Heather Lake summit area from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. (Last shuttle down leaves Heather Lake at 5:30.)

Trans-Canada Highway Day-use Areas

The Skunk Cabbage and Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trails are located along the Trans- Canada Highway section of Mount Revelstoke National Park. These trails are at their best in early morning or early evening. The boardwalks, washrooms and picnic areas at Skunk Cabbage and Giant Cedars open with the spring snowmelt - generally the May long weekend. They close after Canadian Thanksgiving in early October. Delays in trail openings may occur when bears are present in the area or when snow has caused damage to trail structures.

Information Services

When the parkway is closed (from Canadian Thanksgiving to the May long weekend), visitors seeking information about Mount Revelstoke National Park can visit our office in the City of Revelstoke. This office is open year-round from Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. till noon and 1 p.m. until 4:30. It is located in the Post Office building at 301B - 3rd Street West in Revelstoke.
