Pemberton

Pemberton

Nestled in a fertile valley and tightly surrounded by incredible snowy peaks, the village of Pemberton is a hidden gem at the heart of the Coast Mountains. Located just 25 minutes north of Whistler, Pemberton (known to locals as "Spud Valley") enjoys a slightly warmer and sunnier climate. Combined with the rarity of flat ground amidst the Coast Mountains, this makes the area a prime agricultural zone.

We’ll drink to that

We’ll drink to that

While beer in North America has traditionally been considered a ‘man’s’ beverage, the times are changing: last year’s inaugural Whistler Village Beer Festival drew a crowd of close to 2300 that seemed almost half male, half female. President and Founder of Vancouver’s Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers Shae De Jaray says within the craft brewing industry, 25% of the market is now women, and the number is growing.
What We Love Now

What We Love Now

Some of the things we love now: Naked Lunch, with their tasty and nutritious menu from only the freshest fruits and vegetables. Behind the Red Door, featuring traditional cuisine that delivers serious bang for the buck such as Cassoulet and West Coast Bouillabaisse. Frosty Delights' snow cones made from incredibly light, shaved ice and all-natural fruit-syrups.
Vodka Tasting

Vodka Tasting

Have you ever been in a room built specifically to maximize the pleasure of drinking and the nuances of taste? No, we’re not talking about your favourite watering hole, or grandpa’s wine cellar. But there is, in Whistler, a one-of-a-kind room designed perfectly to enhance the tasting experience. With walls hewn from crystal-clear blocks of ice, the air is startlingly, breathtakingly fresh and has the sort of cold that makes your skin tingle. At -32° Celsius (-26° Fahrenheit), the Belvedere Ice Room at Bearfoot Bistro is the coldest vodka tasting room in the world.
