In 1877, the area was opened to settlements and soon a steady flow of trappers and prospectors traveled into the majestic snow covered mountains and fertile valleys to seek their fortune. Soon the area became known as a superior fly-fishing location and lodges were soon built to accommodate eager anglers. With road and transportation improvements, the recreational value of the mountains was soon developed with first ski lift in 1966. In 1975, the community of Whistler was recognized as the first resort municipality in Canada.

Trails of all difficulty levels meander around the lake and are used for cross country skiing and snow shoeing during the winter and walking, rollerblading, biking, and dog walking during the warmer months.
