GETTING TO BRALORNE
Bralorne is situated in the Bendor Mountain Range. 100 miles north of Vancouver as the crow flies. Nestled between the drier Chilcotin Range and the mighty Coast Range, it’s a remote area like no other.
Just getting to Bralorne is an adventure not to be missed!
Travel from Lillooet takes 2+ hours on Hwy 40. The mixed paved and dirt road follows the Bridge River and Carpenter Lake Reservoir and is 112 km long. This is the main road in and out of the Bridge River Valley and is open year-round. The hill from Gold Bridge to Bralorne has been paved recently and is the nicest stretch of road in the valley. Check Drive BC for updates and road conditions.
Bralorne is a 2+ hour drive from Whistler over the Hurley Forest Service Road which starts in the Pemberton Meadows and is a rough 2wd dirt road over a high mountain pass. It is often only passable with a 4wd or a high clearance vehicle.
The Hurley is plowed in May every year to open it up for car and truck traffic.
All roads to Bralorne pass by some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable. Expect changing mountain driving conditions. There is no cell phone service after Lillooet or Pemberton. Take your time and enjoy the drive!
Another alternate route is over the High Line Road and Mission Mountain Pass from Anderson Lake.
The Hurley FSR is not plowed in the winter which means a fun ride on your sled all the way to the ‘Lorne!
Ride your snowmobile right to Bralorne from the Pemberton Meadows. Don’t miss the East Hurley turn-off at the sign boards and steel bridge. Get frosty faceshots or fresh groomers on your way to the Mineshaft Pub and Mines Motel!
Stop in for lunch at the pub, a great day trip from Pemberton. Premium gas is available at the Mineshaft Pub for sledders to purchase all winter.
Watch out for wildlife on the road. Please respect them and do not chase them on your sled.
