Following an 8am pickup at your hotel in Pemberton or Whistler, head out to the lakeside with your guide to start your ice fishing adventure. Ice starts forming on the lakes in November and lasts until the end of March, and your guide will choose between lakes in Pemberton or Whistler depending on conditions.During your 5-hour tour, head onto the lake and take a seat around a hole bored in the ice.
