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.

  1. I host a podcast about neat stuff in Canada and I had the chance of actually visiting The Hemloft once before. I was looking at writing a story about my adventure and wanted to give the audience an update on it, if you had any new info? Thanks!
