For those who wish to escape the cold of winter, soaking in one of
the area’s natural hot springs is a sublime experience. Visiting the
Skookumchuk or Sloquet hot springs is a popular day trip from
Pemberton. Each offers its own unique setting and character.
After a day of adventure, why not settle in for a warm, hearty meal
at one of Pemberton’s local restaurants? The Pony, The Station
and Mile One Eating House all offer a wide variety of entrées
and often feature local produce and meats. Each serves its own
signature dishes, ranging from gourmet pizzas and burgers to
hearty pastas and wild game entrées.
In the evening Pemberton has a few places to wet your whistle
with a cold beer, a stiff shot or glass of wine. The Pony’s bar offers
a rotating selection of B.C.’s finest craft beers. Fescues Restaurant
at Big Sky Golf Club features fondues and comforting winter
favourites, pub and board games, and is the place to watch all
the latest sports action. The Prospect Pub is the place to go for
nightlife, live music and comedy. While only a 30-minute drive
north from Whistler, Pemberton seems far removed from the
hustle and bustle of Whistler Village. Its quaint, old-western
downtown harkens back to simpler times, yet all the thrills and
adventure you can imagine exist a mere arm’s length away.
