The Long Days of Summer

Chris Christie

Squeeze the most out of every ounce of daylight.

Named from the First Nation word Skwxwú7mesh, meaning “Mother of the Wind” and “people of the sacred water”,  Squamish comes alive in the summer when we combine our sports. There’s no limit to how much you can do here in a day. Sunrise to sundown, summer days are good till the very last drop.

Full stoke. 365 days a year.

Rain, shine, and everything in between, we celebrate it all. Kickstart your next adventure with local insights and tips to make the most of your next trip.

Big adventures call for a proper fuel up and recharge. The local food scene offers plenty to dig into when you’re in the mood for après in the sunshine or a well-earned ice cream after a stellar ride.
