Image from Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre activity in Things to do in Whistler

In the outdoor exhibits at the Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre, visitors can step into the traditional Lil'wat Pit House.

Outside of the Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre is the Istken, a traditional Lil'wat Pit House which as a unique cone shaped roof which is warm in the winter and cool in the summer and was usually entered by a ladder through the smoke hole in the roof, making it easy to defend (but had a hidden side entrance for children and the elderly).
