Greetings from Whistler and Pemberton,
WOW, what a scorcher of a week all across BC, the hottest week we have ever experienced!! Records were broken all over the province and although the temperatures are dropping starting tomorrow it is still going to be HOT. We hope you are finding ways to stay cool and check on your family and neighbors. Step 3 of the reopening starts July 1st and with that comes a sigh of relief for many. The economic recovery will take time, it has been a difficult 18 months for many businesses but we are on the right track. The increase in vaccine deliveries has been a gamechanger for reducing new cases, hospitalization, and even deaths. Whistler and Pemberton are ready to welcome you back! Please remember to be kind and respectful of each other, everyone’s emotions and experiences have been different as we navigated thru these difficult and uncharted waters.
Real estate this past week has seen more listings than sales which is a flip from last week for Whistler currently at 185 listings and Pemberton is still seeing a very low inventory with a total of just 42 listings! We will see what happens when more Canadians and Americans are allowed to travel as we wait to hear about the border opening. If there is anything you would like more information on or would like an evaluation on your property just let us know, we are here for you!

“An evacuation alert for parts of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District’s Area C, the Pemberton Valley, and Mount Currie issued on Saturday was updated to an evacuation order later that night amidst increasingly high water levels.
The order was put in effect at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 27, “due to immediate danger to life safety caused by flooding in the Pemberton Valley,” according to the SLRD’s website. Residents must leave the area immediately.
Unusually high seasonal temperatures have led to snowmelt and, as a result, rapidly rising rivers throughout the area. With the heatwave expected to continue throughout the coming week, The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a Flood Watch. Groundwater saturation has already resulted in some surface flooding, according to the SLRD. ” Excerpt from Pique Newsmagazine full details in the link below.
Our rivers in Pemberton are still very high and we are keeping a very close watch on all areas with these extreme temperatures.
