Pemberton

Geography

Located on Highway 99, just 35km/27mi north of Whistler and 104km/65mi southwest of Lillooet, Pemberton is part of the Lillooet River Valley, a vast glacial trough that lies between the Coast and Cascade mountains.

Glacial peaks

The coastal mountain ranges define much of the British Columbia experience. They bestow Whistler Blackcomb with crown peaks that have made them North America's top destinations for downhill skiing and have provided Pemberton with something more: a multi-level micro climate of verdant valleys, forests of interior Douglas fir and western hemlock, a subalpine ecology, ice fields and glaciers.

Pemberton Icefield

This includes the Pemberton Icefield, covering several hundred square miles of treeless terrain, and the Joffre Glacier Group situated above a subalpine chain of three turquoise-coloured lakes.
