    Our favourite part was the hike along the river (20-30 min each way) - really great forest and river views. The falls was good and unique too even though it's not super big. Overall, worth the drive from Whistler.

    Dreamcatcher Meadows
    (Jill and John)

    We may be bias since it was our wedding but we have been told everyone agrees with us.
    Dreamcatcher was the best Venue we could ever have imagined for a wedding.
    The scenery was breathtaking. The place was huge, every corner of the property was beautiful and had something to offer. Jill and John were super accommodating. We saw this place in the winter even before it was at its best and one main thing that sold us was we did not have to coordinate, think or worry about everything. Their venue already offered a lot of important items. They had a place to get ready, they had the grass area, the covered area, an area for rentals, caterers, hand made harvest tables that fit the scene perfectly with chairs to match, wine barrels for small tables, power and even amazing party lights that were extremely elegant. Then we got to see the place in spring with all its natural beauty. Flowers, horses, river, grass, wildlife. Everything was alive and beautiful without needing much more. The day before John freshly cut the grass, set up hay bales and a few antiques that just put icing on the cake. They had patio heaters if we needed them and even brought out firewood for their fire pit (no fire ban at the time) to top it all off John set up games everyone could play together on the grass and Jill took pro photos of the wedding throughout, we couldn’t even notice her and the photos were awesome.
    At one point of the wedding we just stood there and looked around, apparently a few others did this too. The place was perfect. The children playing in the grass field, people conversating beside the river, others grouping together to play horseshoes, a few around an open fire pit drinking wine, the partiers living on the dance floor and still a bunch of people at the tables stuck in conversation. Even the rental toilet area was hidden away but with its own area surrounded by enough beauty that they didn’t feel like typical outhouses.

    We would get married here again if only to have this experience in a place like this one more time.
    Beyond expectations.

    The food and beer tasted amazing and the views here were spectacular. I would highly recommend this location to anyone considering visiting! Completely worth it and was one of our trip highlights.

    "Must visit" for vodka, gin, and flavoured alcohol aficionados. A small, low-key tasting room in an industrial building almost in Mount Currie. But Tyler, one of the owners, is extremely knowledgeable yet low key with a Masters degree in distilling, including one year "at school" in Scotland. He will explain, in as much detail as you want, all the ingredients that create the fantastic flavours of his company's numerous products. My wife loved the gin, I fell in love with the absinthe, the cacao flavoured liqueur was delicious. We were offered more products, but left ready to go to the Legacy Liquor store in Vancouver, where most of their products are sold.

    It was a very nice walk around the lake for almost 30-45 minutes for the distance of 1 mile or approximately 1.5 KM. Most of the walk was on a wood trail above the water which was interesting. There are signs on trees encouraging to do certain workouts while enjoying the walk. Washrooms are available. There a connector trail to Narin falls if you would like more walk.I felt that the water itself there needs more cleaning.

    The Pemberton Open Air Museum is small, but growing. They have great plans for adding new buildings and artifacts. The folks there genuinely care about sharing their slice of Canadian frontier history. It is a pleasant attraction to take in if you are in the area.

    This beautiful and modern building also houses the Pemberton District Community Centre. Many activities take place here. The washrooms also have showers( $3.75). The library has a nice sitting area and WiFI, enough outlets for people to charge their cell phones, tablets.
    Nice place to sit and read.

    the pluses include fabulous views of snow covered mountains and the amazing snowscape will take your breath away. I saw a majestic frozen waterfall. pretty rigorous for a first timer in snowshoeing.

    the minuses are the few sharp cliffs you will have to get up and down to get to the hot springs, the water was way too hot and i couldn't get more than my toes in despite cooling it down with snow. zero phone signals so bring along your walkie talkies if u need to communicate with team mates.

    Be sure to bring your own lunch. not good for kids. probably for friends or couples.

    We were lucky enough to see a few black bears way off, on the edge of the clear cut. Signs of deer, grizzly & blackbear were all around. Saw no deer this trip, unlike the last few, but we saw a moose & a grizzly while driving to the site on the Upper South Creek FSR. Note: dogs should be leashed for your safety & theirs!
    Background: Meager Creek was closed, except for winter by snowmobile or skis touring, over the Glacier & Icefield.
    University of British Columbia's Alma Matter Varsity Outdoor Club completed the Harrison Hut Trail August 2014.
    Directions: Drive (4x4) 2 hours/ 64km west from Pemberton Village on Pemberton Meadows Road. It will change into a gravel road, that then becomes the South Creek FSR (Forest Service Road). 40km from the end of asphalt paving the road splits in 2 . Take the South Fork left, uphill onto a logging road for 4 km. The old Logging road & the final 2 km of the South Creek FSR are badly pot-holed. Please don't take the family car. Use 4 x 4 with good ground clearance. Mini SUV's like Subaru-Foresters will bottom-out. Lifted late model pre-1979 2-wheeldrive pickup trucks are fine too, as they have their oil pans & gas tanks lifted up into the chassis.
    At the end of the logging road you`ll find the trail head in the old clearcut. After 6 km the VOC Harrison Hut Trail bisects the existing Meager Creek Hotsprings Trail. It`s 3.5 km more to the pools. Because the pools are still officially closed there are no fecal coliform tests being done. Nor are the pools being flushed every month as they were before the slide took out the road. The pools were also cleared of sand every couple of days. Take a folding steel or high end composite shovel & be prepared to dig out a pool before you can use it – cheap plastic or low grade aluminium won`t work. We were also lucky enough to show up just after other hikers had dug out the pools & flushed them. Flushing for at least 3/4 an hr. is best
    There is Free camping but there are no established official campsites. Camping is officially banned around the hot spring pools, as the” Meager Creek Hot Springs Recreational Area” is officially designated a “Minimum Impact Site”. Camping in the Valley is forbidden too, due to the ongoing landslide & avalanche danger, of this active volcanic zone. Many camp in the Upper Meager Valley, just inside the tree-line, above the beginning of the clearcut. That’s where we stopped about 1 ½ -2 km from the trail head.

    Pemberton to Lillooet via Goldbridge. Dirt/gravel forest service road, took us about 4/5 hours. Be prepared for a dusty car and lots of excitement. This is not a drive for low profie cars, unreliable vehicles or the faint hearted. A full tank of gas is also recommended.

    If you are used to off road driving, this route has amazing views. The hotel cafe in Goldbridge is also well worth a visit for its out of time feel and simply being there for recharging in the middle of an exhausting drive.

    Our entire family had a great day of ice fishing with Brad and Jamie. Brad runs an incredibly professional guiding service and it was a wonderful experience for everybody. Our youngest 7 year old grand-daughter is still smiling about the rainbow trout she caught. The scenery was also spectacular. Hard to think of a better outing for the entire family!!

    Stunning scenery, wonderful steady horses and the bonus of sighting a black bear made for a great ride. Visited May 2019 (system couldn’t load date) and can’t wait to come back and do some longer rides.

    I contacted Sea 2 Sky paragliding as my Mother and I were traveling to the Whistler area and wanted to have a great adventure. Guy contacted me back and I explained to him some of our reservations due to my Mother, being 92 years young, wanted to make sure of the harness and how it would fit her. We met with Guy the day prior to our flight and he went through all the preflight instructions with us and fitted my Mom with the flying harness to make sure she would be comfortable in it. On our scheduled day, Guy met us and we travelled to the take off area, up a 4WD rd, to approximately 4000' elevation. That was a good adventure also as we saw beautiful forest landscapes and signs of recent bears in the area. At the takeoff location, we were fitted in the flying harness and waited for the wind to be just right, then with a running start the parasail was up and we were off - flying with the eagles! Our flight lasted about a half and hour and the views of Pemberton valley and mountain ranges was beautiful. A smooth landing in a chosen field completed the flight. We would definitely do it again!!!!
