Lower Stein Valley
Just two-and-a-half hours from Vancouver up the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Pemberton makes a perfect base for a weekend (or more) of diverse outdoor activities that will have you exploring the bounty of this mountain valley. Though it’s 90 kilometres (56 miles) north of Whistler, Pemberton offers a warmer and milder microclimate, perfect for a hiking adventure.
About 17 kilometres (11 miles) past Pemberton, you’ll reach the town of Mt. Currie and the nearby Stein Valley Nlaka’pamux Heritage Park, home to trails that cut through the alpine for stunning views and access points to an excellent ridge complex. The area’s more accessible walks are in the lower valley, where weather is often much milder, particularly in springtime.
