Train and bus access are available, with a commercial airport situated 13 km (8 mi.) north of the city.Set in the heart of the Frontier, amid lakes and rolling ranchland, Williams Lake has been the focal point and service centre for the ranches of the Cariboo and Chilcotin regions since the turn of the century.This former "cowtown" has grown into a vibrant city that offers a comfortable blend of urban living and easy going western charm perfect home away from home at one of our vacation rental accommodations. With an area population over 36,000, Williams Lake has managed to maintain its western charm and rustic look while still being the fastest growing city in the region. The town is thought to be named after Chief William, the leader of the Shuswap First Nations Band that lived in the area when fur traders made their first appearance.

Downhill skiers and snowboarders are catered for as well, 24 kilometres east of Lac la Hache. The Mt. Timothy Ski Area operates a family ski hill featuring a snowboard park and a seven-minute scenic T-bar ride up the 1,635-metre hill.
