Glide, Stride or Skate - Nordic Skiing In Sea to Sky Country
In the Sea to Sky, you're never too far from some of the world's most attractive ski touring venues and groomed Nordic ski and snowshoe trails.
Sea to Sky country boasts some of North America's most scenic terrain, much of which is right here in Squamish where you never have to travel too far to find snowcapped vistas, hefty snowfalls and a range of cross-country skiing options from ungroomed routes to world-class facilities.
Brandywine Falls Provincial Park
Located just 20 minutes north of Squamish, Brandywine Falls Provincial Park is an adventure in itself. Known for its scenic falls, creek and old growth forests, this park is accessible year-round and a favourite among hikers, skiers and snowshoers alike.
Skiing in the Callaghan
