Pemberton isnt really a "tourist" destination. Whistler is about an hour south of Pemberton, so if you have more time, make a trek down there. July is summer, and it should be great weather.
Check this website out http://www.pemberton.net/
thats for Pemberton. Its a nice place, but very small. If you do head to Whistler, you should check out the Whistler website at http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/index.htm keep in mind that its still all the winter info, but if you google Whistler, you can get tons of sites that will give you summer info. There is mountain biking, sight seeing, hiking. If you want a good hike, go even further south, to Squamish, and you can find the Chief, which has the most amazing view from the top. send me an email if you want any more info

Pemberton is a very small place. Without a car you'd feel trapped in no-time.

But its in the center of great country if you are interested in the outdoors.

Whistler... if driving you'll go through there on your way to Pemberton from Vancouver. Lots of tourist stuff. Very upscale. Think Vail or Aspen. (If you drive like me Whistler and Pemberton are between 30 and 45 minutes apart.

Just south of Whistler, and again North of Whistler, there are some roadside Provincial Parks with hikes to waterfalls, etc.

SW of Pemberton, S of Whistler there is a great Provincial Park called Garibaldi. Mostly wilderess. There's a good trail in to Garibaldi lake (beware ... it has lots of elevation gain ... somewhere near 4,000 ft in 6 or 8 miles). Or you can ride wistler's chairlift to the top and hike the "musical bumps" ... spectacular alpine hiking with tremendous views.

To the east of Pemberton there is a road called "The Duffey Lake Road" that crosses the Cascade Mtns. from Pemberton to Lilloett and the Fraser River in I'm not sure if its paved the whole way yet. It's a spectacular mountain trip, but you'd find it a bit nervous if you've never driven in the mountains before. It makes a GREAT circle trip: Vancouver - Whistler - Pemberton - Lilloet - Fraser Canyon - Trans Canada Hwy - Vancouver. The interior is hot and dry in the summer ... not at all what you'd expect in B.C.

On the way, near the summit, is Joffre Provincial Park and Mt Metier. Excellent hiking. You only need hike about4 or 5 miles in before you come to a beautiful glacier ending at an alpine lake.

for rafting, or helicopter trips to various glaciers near Pemberton like the Pemberton Icefields chech the many outdootr tour companies in Whistler.

Just to the north of Pemberton, and to the south, are various hot springs (Meager hot springs being the best known).

I've just hit a few areas. there are whole guidebooks to hiking, climbing, hot springs, etc. in the area. Are you near an REI store? They may be able to get some guidebooks ... they have them in their Seattle store.

Weather in July should be good. At any time in the NW/BC you can hit rain (even the very rare snowfall in alpine areas) so prepare w/ rain gear. But in general, the weather should be good. If its rainy near Whistler/Pemberton, head east towards Lilloet... very rarely rains there in summer.

Re Joffre Lakes: google Joffre Lake. Here are a couple of rood sites, one the province c/w hiking map, the other has good pics.

Travel Tips for Pemberton

PEMBERTON & PLENTY OF BEARS!

by balhannah

PEMBERTON is in a large valley surrounded by mountains, the largest is Mt. Currie.

It is 35ks from Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway.

A lot of the stores in town, have fronts on them like the wild west.

The town is growing and there are resorts here, one had a family of Bears nearly feeding on their lawn!

Even though there are Resorts, it didn't seem to be on the Tourist Trail!

It is an agricultural area known for its seed potatoes.

There are lakes and the Nairn Provincial park which has waterfalls.

Plenty of Bears in this area, the most we saw over a very short period of time.
