Known as Canada’s adventure capital, Squamish is ready for action year-round. From snow sports to wildlife watching, here are some winter activity options to add to your Squamish itinerary. 

Flightseeing
See the scenery of British Columbia from above during a flightseeing tour. Your pilot will steer the plane over the Squamish Valley between the towns of Squamish and Whistler, giving you incredible views of glaciers, dense forests, and snow-capped peaks.

Sea to Sky Gondola
Travel up to 2,900 feet (884 meters), admiring views of the Coast Mountain peaks and Howe Sound on the Sea to Sky Gondola. At the summit station, sip a hot drink while enjoying the snowy vistas, or brave the cold temperatures and embark on a snowshoeing hike through the frosty forest. 

Eagle Viewing
Peak eagle-viewing season in Squamish is November through February, when wintering bald eagles congregate in the Brackendale area to feed on salmon. Take a trip on a raft known as an eagle float for a chance at views of these magnificent creatures while winding down the lower Cheakamus and Squamish rivers.

Winter Sports
The snow-covered terrain of Squamish is the perfect setting for outdoor winter activities. You’ll find groomed snowshoe and cross-country ski trails in nearby Brandywine Falls Provincial Park, while Whistler Olympic Park—now a public facility with ski jumps and almost 56 miles (90 kilometers) of cross-country routes—is less than an hour away by road.
