Pemberton & Area Communities

Pemberton & district contains several unique mountain communities including:
- Village of Pemberton
- Lil'wat Nation (Mt Currie)
- Pemberton Meadows
- SLRD Area C (regional areas between these communities)
The area was developed at the turn of the century as a result of forestry and agriculture. The Pemberton Valley lies northwest of the Village and is famous for its seed potatoes. Pemberton and district hosts world-class activities and recreation including snowmobiling, horseback riding, skiing, golfing, hiking, rafting, jet boating and gliding. The district also provides a variety of shopping, dining, accommodations and a thriving service and light industrial sector!
The Pemberton district abounds with natural beauty surrounded by three of the most beautiful Provincial Parks in BC. There is ample opportunity for camping at Birkenhead Lake, Garibaldi, Joffre Lakes and Nairn Falls parks.
Pemberton is easy to reach by road and air. Highway 99 is a well maintained major provincial highway. The Village's airport provides access for fixed wing and helicopter traffic.
