Canoe/ Kayak/ SUP on Arrow Lake: During the late spring and peak of summer is the best time to go paddling right out of our front door. Once the Columbia River is flooded from the Revelstoke Dam you can head directly across the road to the launch spot and paddle straight out.
Alternately head further down Airport way to many other water sport launches at “6 mile”, “9 mile” or head right to the end of the road to the beach at the flats.
Swim at Williamson Lake: Just a short 1.5km walk, bike or drive away Williamson Lake is the perfect spot to recover from the days adventure or to simply lounge waterside and enjoy the sunshine and cool water.
Skiing / Snowboarding: Revelstoke Mountain Resort is a world class resort, with the most skiable vertical terrain in North America and it's only 2 minutes from our front door.
