Just north of Vancouver! The scenic mountains in and around Squamish offers some incredible ski adventures. A favourite ski destination is the Elfin Lakes hut, or the Red Heather hut in the Diamond Head area of Garibaldi Provincial Park, with a wide range of terrain and backdrops that can top the best Whistler has to offer.
Spend the day enjoying laps on Paul Ridge, or use the hut as a base camp to explore Mt Garibaldi & Mt Atwell. A favourite backcountry challenge is the traverse of the Garibaldi Neve which brings you from Diamond Head to Garibaldi Lake. There is also great backcountry skiing to be found on Mount Garibaldi's Brohm Ridge and in the Cloudburst Mountain and Tricouni areas of the Squamish/Cheakamus Divide.
The scenic alpine terrain around Squamish makes for great cross-country skiing. The mountains surrounding Squamish get an average of 2,300 mm (90 in) of precipitation annually, which means a generous amount of snow accumulates in the winter months.
