Spring is Here, Time to Take Advantage of Spring Events
It's That Time of Year Again - Spring!
And with that change of seasons, we've got a full line-up of stuff to do. In typical Pemberton fashion, a lot of it just requires you to step outside your back door and start to breathe. That valley air will soon inspire you to head out on the trails, onto a river, make you jump on your bike and head out the Pemberton Meadows Road or out to Lillooet.
You may find yourself jumping off a cliff, or out of an airplane. You may find yourself at the skate park or simply walking your dog in the woods. But you'll probably find yourself outdoors and in nature. It's hard not to when the warm air and sun calls you. Pemberton spirit induces even the most home-bodied among us to step out and breathe the fresh air.
Popular Hikes in the Pemberton Valley
We recently wrote about popular hikes in the Pemberton Valley. Now that the snow has thawed, you can enjoy these hikes without worrying so much about the weather. Nairn Falls is always popular, and so easy to get to. One of the things we love best about Pemberton is the accessibility - sometimes an outdoor adventure is literally right outside our doorstep.

Horseback Riding - The Ideal Pemberton Day
One of the most quintessential Pemberton things to do is to take a horseback ride. From one hour tours to multi-day adventures, there are several outfitters in the valley to create the idea horseback riding day for you. There are more horses per capita in Pemberton than anywhere else in British Columbia. We've got hitching posts outside many downtown shops, and they aren't there just as a tourist attraction. You'll most likely see horses hitched out in front of Pemberton establishments when you visit us. So why not join in? Go for a horseback riding tour and discover the best of Pemberton.
TEDActive in Whistler
March 16th to March 20th, TEDActive in Whistler with speakers, exhibits, demos and so much more. This year's theme is Truth and Dare. The most potentially provocative TED yet, it challenges you to really consider your truth and what the basis for that truth is. Speakers will also dare you to consider new solutions to old problems. The entire event is sold out long in advance, but Whistler will be buzzing with excitement and electricity as the week progresses.
