Yes, google (maps) is your friend! www.maps.google.com It gave me results of 213 km, estimated at 2 hours and 49 minutes - but I guess it depends on where in Kamloops you start, and where in Revelstoke you finish. Don't forget that these estimates are driving time only, and in ideal (i.e. summer) driving conditions. Suffice it so say that google's average speed of 76 km/hr says quite a bit about the road - it's definitely not freeway driving, but winding, mostly two-lane highway.

The route is via the Trans-Canada highway #1, and you can zoom in on it with the satellite view to see it better, and also, with "street view" on Google maps, you can drop the little orange guy anywhere along the route and see what it looks like, 360 degrees, from on the ground. For current road conditions, check out www.drivebc.com - conditions are updated daily, and web cams are also available.

Predicting road conditions two months from now is like predicting weather two months from now - let's just say that you can expect anything from okay winter driving conditons to abysmal winter driving conditions, and probably a mixture of each - probably not much different from driving conditions on the TCH in Thunder Bay in February.

yes its about 3 hours, and the road is fairly decent. the worst part of the road would be between "three valley gap" and revelstoke. you can get lots of snow in that area. good thing is that youre not going past revelstoke, which is the hardest part of the drive with lots and lots of snow as you head up and through rogers pass!
