Pemberton & 2010 Winter Games
The eyes of the world will be focused on British Columbia in 2010 when Vancouver and Whistler host the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Ideally located just north of the Host Mountain Resort, Pemberton & district offers the perfect home base for your access to 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games events and venues.
The Perfect 2010 Gateway
Just minutes from most venues, Pemberton will be bursting with action and activity in 2010.
Our location north of Whistler can provide easier road access to the games.
Pemberton and district is celebrating our area, winter and the 2010 winter games with the annual Pemberton Winterfest celebrations.
From the Olympic Torch Rely in Pemberton on February 6 to the following two weeks of great events we're ready to come together and have a great time. Come celebrate with us!
The Excitement Has Already Begun

Try out the ski venues for yourself with a run or two down Whistler Mountain’s Dave Murray Downhill or head to the Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley (35 minutes south of Pemberton) and explore more than 40 kilometres of incomparable cross-country trails.

Getting to Pemberton & district is simple, and by June 2009 the Sea to Sky Highway will have been upgraded by a massive, multi-million-dollar improvement project.
Currently, the highway is open and fully accessible with only the occasional short delay or pre-scheduled closure. Once the project is complete, the mountain highway will be straighter, have more passing lanes and enhanced monitoring for winter weather maintenance.
Now is the time to start planning if you want to be front-and-centre for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Visit our Pemberton accommodation section to view lodging available in our district or call 1 604 894-6744 to speak to a Tourism Pemberton booking agent.
If you are calling to book between February to April 2010, during the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, you must book your accommodation directly with the properties. Contact us for more information on possible availability.
