When Justin Trudeau visited Revelstoke in late July, 2017 to encourage support for a B.C. wildfire Red Cross relief effort, he was greeted by a big crowd of supporters who mobbed the Prime Minister for selfies under a scorching hot sun. It took him the better part of 45 minutes to walk a block away from Grizzly Plaza due to the crowd.
While on stage in Grizzly Plaza, he was presented with local gifts, including a locally made Trapper snowboard. It seems the PM, who was once a snowboard instructor in Whistler, is back to take his new stick for a rip in the Revelstoke mountains.
@justinpjtrudeau made a stop in Revelstoke. The City of Revelstoke presented him and his family with gifts of significance. What better than something made with Revelstoke trees. We stepped up with the first 2018 Trapper snowboard off the production line while @katcadegan provided beautifully crafted jewelry for his wife and daughter. #notaselfie #locallumber #MadeInCanadaFromCanada Trudeau is urging Canadians to donate to @redcrosscanada to assist #wildfire relief efforts especially for evacuees.

It’s official, Trudeau is back in Revelstoke. The Prime Minister’s official news release web page issues a daily itinerary brief for the Prime Minister. On January 2 and 3, the official statement notes that Trudeau is in Revelstoke on “personal” time. Prior to that, he was in Lake Louise on Jan. 1, also on personal time.
There’s not much more to go by — the itinerary is issued daily, so it’s unclear how long he’s going to be vacationing here. He was also presented a season’s pass to Revelstoke Mountain Resort back in July, so he could be taking advantage of the free lifts.
His Twitter account has been silent since Jan. 1. His Instagram account has also been quiet for the past couple of days. If you’ve got any sightings or selfies, be sure to let us know! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 250-814-8710.
