The Pemberton area offers some of the best snowmobiling terrain
in Western Canada. Areas include the World Famous Pemberton Icecap,
Meager Creek Hot Springs, Bralorne, Gold Bridge, Face Mountain,
Hope Creek, Noel Creek, Meager Creek and Salal Creek to name
Pemberton Ice Field
The Pemberton Ice Fields can only be described as a
snowmobiler's paradise! The Pemberton Ice Fields offer vast,
wide open, treeless riding with spectacular views of the Coast
Mountains and beyond. The Pemberton Ice Fields are a
collection of glaciers and only a quick 150km drive from
Vancouver. You will feel you are a world away from the hub
and noise of the city.
There are three access points to the Pemberton Ice Fields, one
near Brandywine Falls, and one near Callaghan Lake both just about
a 20 minute drive south of Whistler. The other access point is by
the Rutherford Creek bridge between Whistler and Pemberton. All
three are conveniently located off Highway 99.
Bralorne, the "snowmobile headquarters for Western Canada"
popular area for snowmobiling in Pemberton is the area surrounding
the historical mining town of Bralorne. Bralorne is gold
mining town that once boomed in the 1930's and produced over 3
million ounces of gold. Now it is known as the "snowmobile
headquarters for Western Canada". From November to April you can
ride the mountain slopes and backcountry roads around Bralorne with
great fun and ease.
Bralorne is situated in the Bendor Mountain Range about 100
miles north of Vancouver as the crow flies. It is nestled
between the drier Chilcotin Range and the mighty Coast Mountain
Range. Bralorne is about a 2 hour drive from Whistler and is
accessible via the Pemberton Meadows Road and then over the Hurley
Forest Service Road. Luckily for sledders the
Hurley Forest Service Road is not ploughed in the winter which
means a fun ride on you snowmobile all the way to
A visit to Bralorne in the winter is a great day trip from
Pemberton. Stop in for lunch and get warmed up at the Mine
Shaft Pub. Premium gas is also available at the Mineshaft Pub
for snowmobilers to purchase all winter. The Mine Shaft Pub
is a great place to meet fellow sledders and skiers at the
beginning and end of each day and a sense of excitement fills the
air. Bag lunches can be arranged from the pub for the
trail. View more information here about snowmobiling in
the Bralorne area.
