Squamish, dubbed the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada, is a captivating spot to visit any time of year.
Squamish is a beautiful mountain town located half-way between the bustling metropolis of Vancouver and the ski resort of Whistler. World-class trails, rock climbing parks, consistent wind patterns, a relatively mild year-round climate, and proximity to ocean, mountains and rivers make Squamish a sought-after destination for mountain bikers, hikers, rock climbers, kite and windsurfers, kayakers, ski tourers, and backcountry enthusiasts alike.
