Welcome to Squamish!

Conveniently located only 45 minutes south of Whistler and 45 minutes north of Vancouver, the seaside community of Squamish is a diamond amongst many other jewels. The community of Squamish consists of the suddivisions of Squamish, Garibaldi Higlands, Brackendale and Valley Cliff. The name Squamish is adapted from the Coast Salish word 'Sko-mish' which translates to 'Strong Wind' or 'Birthplace of the Winds', affirmation of the constant gales that are present here. The eruption of Mount Garibaldi thousands of years ago left remnants of granite throughout the city and adds drama to its already dynamic landscape-complete with mountains, water and lush forests. Above all else, Squamish is a recreational hot-spot conducive to windsurfing, mountain climbing, hiking, scuba diving and kayaking, to name a few. Those who love the great outdoors should check out Shannon Falls Provincial Park, home to BC's third largest waterfall, as well as a number of hiking trails.
