This highly sought after and very versatile 53.5 acre property is located on the south side of the Sea to Sky Highway immediately to the east of the Village of Mount Currie. It is bound to the south by a large drainage channel that surrounds the site and drains to the north towards the Birkenhead River. Lil’wat First Nations lands surround the Site to the north, west and south sides including the Village of Mount Currie and several other First Nations Lands. The site is currently occupied by a 1 acre vegetable (hobby) farm, which includes a house, trailer and a storage building. A dirt road has been cleared from the main highway access near the western property perimeter at the southernmost portion of the Site. Small channels have been excavated on the western portion of the site to provide better drainage of shallow groundwater across the site. The majority of the site is undeveloped and consists of mixed deciduous and coniferous forest, including wetlands consisting of marshes and shallow ponds and channels.
The entire site sits atop a groundwater aquifer that is characterized as artesian. The current owner has commissioned a Preliminary Hydrogeological Review of the artesian aquifer. (Available upon request.) The study suggests that there could be potential to sustain a groundwater production capacity of 10 million to 200 million litres per month on a long term basis with suitable quality for potable water use.
This is a great spot for recreation or farming with very fertile soil for growing vegetables or raising animals, all within 10 minutes of the Village of Pemberton, and 35 minutes from world famous Whistler Blackcomb ski resort.
