Whistler Hemloft

The Iconic Whistler Hemloft lives on

Wondering what happened to the Hemloft? Mountain Life did a feature on this mysterious acorn-shaped treehouse and Canadian Wilderness Adventure’s plans for it’s future.  Read about how Whistler’s favourite treehouse, The Hemloft, will be repurposed.

Thank You for Your Support

The Canadian family would like to extend a deeply heartfelt Thank You to everyone who supported in our permanent zoning of the Callaghan Valley. We are proud to announce that the zoning has been approved and we will be breaking ground in the near future.  Thank you to the 70 people who attended the public hearing for the Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 1478-2016, and to the 43 people who submitted supportive written submissions.

We are truly touched and overwhelmed by the amount of support we received on this journey. Canadian’s vision for a sustainable backcountry adventure operation built using reclaimed materials, and proudly showcasing green building strategies and technologies, is becoming a reality because of you.  We look forward to welcoming visitors and locals alike to come enjoy our quintessential Canadian Experience.

Acquiring the HemLoft

On April 11, 2013 The Pique News Magazine revealed that it was time for The HemLoft to find a new home. When I stumbled upon the article I knew that this ‘secret acorn’ would fit perfectly at our base in the Callaghan Valley.

Not knowing how Allan would be making his selection I blindly submitted my proposal and crossed my fingers that Canadian Wilderness Adventures would be chosen. After anxiously waiting to hear from Allan, I finally received the phone call revealing the fate of the treehouse: it was to join our collection of refurbished and recycled buildings!

The HemLoft is our way of being able to celebrate the forest and what it represents. It will be an art piece showcasing what Whistler truly represents: nature and ingenuity. The exact date of reassembly is still unknown at this point, as we are currently searching for the perfect tree. However, I can tell you that it’s new home will be nestled amongst 1000 year old trees in the Callaghan Valley.

Stay tuned to hear how the next chapter of the HemLoft’s life unfolds.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped us dismantle the HemLoft; as well as to Nester’s Liquor Store and The Bearfoot Bistro for their donations.
