The Pemberton Valley, nestled 8000 ft. below beautiful Mt. Currie, is home to a wide range of activities, restaurants, accomodation and more. Famed as the Seed-Potato capital, the 'Spud Valley' boasts some of the best produce available, from Pemberton Meadows Natural Beef to one of our newer additions, Schramm's Potato Vodka. Fresh Pemberton produce is available at many of our local restaurants, and it's quickly taking off all across the province. The Annual Slow Food Cycle every August is for sure the best showcase of the Valley- mixing biking, delicious food and gorgeous scenery all into one.
