Greetings from Whistler and Pemberton,
Winter has arrived and it looks like it is here to stay! Temperatures are staying cool this week with clearer skies. It is just over two weeks and the mountains will be open for skiing and snowboarding. You may have heard unfortunately Creekside Gondola and Big Red Express will not be running for opening weekend as they are waiting on parts to arrive. Here is a link to the Whistler Blackcomb press release and the updated plan.
There is lots of events happening in Whistler including Cornucopia, Whistler Film Festival and more. Check out Tourism Whistler events page and plan your visit!

7456 Dogwood Street, Pemberton
This modern and stylish home is located in the popular Benchlands neighbourhood with absolutely stunning 180° views. The impressive build greets you with a spacious entry way leading to 2 bedrooms and a rec room on the lower level. Access the outdoor living room from here and enjoy the hot tub, where everyone gets a seat with a view of Mount Currie. The main floor is home to the living area, dining and kitchen featuring engineered hardwood throughout, a butler’s pantry with wine cooler, an office nook in the kitchen, and two decks – one off the kitchen for the bbq and the other that seamlessly flows from the living room through accordion glass doors opening up to the mountain views that Pemberton is famous for. Upstairs is the primary bedroom – a sanctuary with a space for yoga or reading, huge custom divider sliding doors and a spa-like 5 piece ensuite. This home is the ultimate in comfort with heated tile flooring in the bathrooms and entry, heat pump that efficiently provides heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, surround sound through the interior and the outside living spaces, propane range for the chef and 2 fireplaces. Storage and parking are a breeze with the huge driveway and double car garage, and there is a 2 bedroom suite that makes a great mortgage helper, home office or nanny suite. This newer home was built without missing a single detail and is ready for a new family to start making memories of their own.
Fall and Winter Arts and Culture Scene
“The mountains are an inspiration, a place of strength and a source of beauty for many, and there’s no right way to experience them. Arts and culture are a part of mountain life, running alongside and underpinning the sports scene that Whistler is famous for, making it a multi-dimensional place to experience.”
There is so much going on over this month and the next few months in Whistler – Whistler Film Festival, Whistler Writers Festival, and numerous events at the Audain Art Museum and Squamish Lilwat Cultural Centre. We hope you have a chance to enjoy some of them while we all wait for ski season to really kick off!
