Skiing and Snowboarding
Whistler Blackcomb ski resort has all the skiing and snowboarding opportunities you could ask for.
Rock climbing
The Stawamus Chief is Canada's spot for big wall climbing. There are over 200 documented routes on this 2200 foot granite monolith.
Mountain Biking
Anywhere in Sea to Sky Country is good for mountain biking but Squamish valley is filled with extreme trails from beginner to expert.
World class windsurfing at the Squamish spit is due to the steady prevailing winds funneling up North Americas southermost fjord.
Bird watching
Over 10,000 American bald eagles congregate in the Squamish valley between November and January to feed on the 120,000 chum salmon who spawn at this time. Also the Squamish estuary conservation society has identified more than 300 bird species in the area.
