100 miles from Lillooet on the original Cariboo Waggon Road, 100 Mile House dates back to the days of the Hudson’s Bay Company fur trade and became a rest stop for prospectors on the Gold Rush Trail. Murals throughout the community commemorate early pioneers.
100 Mile House claims lofty titles, including “Handcrafted Log Home Capital of North America” and “International Nordic Ski Capital”. The latter reflects the fact that 100 Mile House has one of the most active Nordic ski clubs in B.C. with access to one of the longest groomed-trail networks in Canada. Other highlights include the community’s proximity to the Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail, a maintained, signed route, and home base for local snowmobile clubs, horse-drawn sleigh rides, snowshoeing and dogsled tours. Spring through fall, these Nordic routes are ideal for mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, photography and wildlife
