Hemlock Resort, British ColumbiaA Quaint Alpine Community
Tucked away high above Harrison Lake, Hemlock Resort is a quaint alpine community comprised of cabins, town houses, condominiums and a daylodge.
Hemlock is an intermediate mountain -- 20 percent of the 35 trails are rated beginner, with the balance divided equally between intermediate and expert -- covering 350 acres of skiable terrain. Three chairlifts and a handle tow quickly take skiers and snowboarders to nicely groomed runs and open bowls.
Nordic skiers are not forgotten at Hemlock. Cross-country / Snoeshoe trails have been improved and the facilities expanded recently. Hemlock welcomes cross country skiers, however the trails are not track set.
Hemlock is the home of Fantastic... Family... Fun. Accommodations are available on the mountain or in nearby Agassiz.
Hemlock is only 100 km (60 miles) from Vancouver. Take Highway #1 to Abbotsford and follow Highway #11 through Mission to the Lougheed Highway #7. Proceed east to Morris Valley Road, turn left and follow the signs.
