Pemberton is a beautiful town located just 30 minutes north of Whistler. With incredible mountain views, tons of recreational activities and a quieter lifestyle to Whistler, it’s no wonder that so many people choose to settle down here.
The area is surrounded by a number of breathtaking Provincial Parks each providing opportunities for adventure and exploration. Birkenhead Lake, Garibaldi, Joffre Lakes and Nairn Falls parks are huge draws for locals who love the outdoors.
Due to the rich arable land, farming is a major part of what Pemberton is about and there are a number of fantastic farms in the area. This is definitely a home for food lovers. There are also lots of recreation opportunities including snowmobiling, biking, hiking, horseback riding and more.
Yet, farming and outdoor recreation are relatively new to Pemberton’s history. Long before there was a resort in Whistler or farmers tilling the earth, the Pemberton Valley was the traditional territory of First Nations people of the Interior Salish tribe. The band settled at the foot of majestic Mount Currie and the head of Lillooet Lake where Mt. Currie village exists today. Currently, the District of Pemberton includes the Village, the First Nations community of Mt. Currie, the Pemberton Valley, D’Arcy and Birken.
Potential homebuyers will find a range of housing options. Traditional single family homes combine with the more contemporary luxury properties and new condominium, townhome and duplex developments to round out the offerings.
