Canyon to Alpine
Tucked into the Rain shadow of the Coastal Mountains, Lillooet has dry hot summers and cold winters with little snow. Despite its proximity to the Lower Mainland, Lillooet is still very rural. Situated on the banks of the Fraser River and surrounded by spectacular mountains, Lillooet is the ideal place to live for anyone who appreciates wild BC at their backdoor, but still wants easy access to the lower mainland or the interior of BC.
