Access by road is 3 hours from Whistler, and 5.5 hours from Vancouver. It is 1 hour by plane from Vancouver International Airport, and a half-an-hour from Whistler by helicopter or plane.
South Chilcotin Mountain Region
The region has a mild four-season climate nestled on the lee side of the Coast Range Mountains in the Chilcotin Mountain Ranges. These are unique glaciated mountains rising to 9,500 ft elevation, and averaging 7,500 ft. These are hospitable mountains, with easy access. The tree line is approximately 6,500 ft. The alpine is the most valued area with over 1,000 Alpine Basins, each carpeted in lush wildflowers and each with its own big-game species. These mountain ranges are referred to as the "Rainbows" because of the mineralization that produces more colors than that of the rainbow.
Trading routes through mountain passes were created centuries ago. The prospectors and guides developed the area and many activities are a repeat of history. Travel the same trails, camp in the same meadows, and view grizzlies feeding on the same white park pine nuts on the same mountain.
