Hemlock Valley is only 90 minutes drive from Metro Vancouver, the third largest metro center in Canada.
Hemlock Valley and Whistler/Blackcomb are the ONLY alpine ski areas within 5 hours drive of Vancouver where one can own or rent cabins and condos in the village.
Normal snow fall in Hemlock Valley is 900cm. This is significantly more than the Vancouver Coastal Mountains, including Whistler/Blackcomb.
Once developed, Hemlock Valley will have more ski-able terrain that any of the Vancouver Coastal Mountains except Whistler/Blackcomb.
There are about 235 chalets, condos and town homes in Hemlock Valley today. Throughout the village there are building lots that have been sitting empty for decades. It is estimated that if all of these lots were built up, the number of lodgings would more than double.
