Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
Squamish is a bona fide Nordic skiing destination, with 230cm/90in of precipitation falling on average in the surrounding Coast Mountains. The municipality is also an affordable jumping-off point for cross-country skiing adventures in the Sea-to-Sky corridor. Between November and April, strap on the planks and enjoy fresh snow both at the nearby Whistler Olympic Park and at local provincial parks.
Whistler Olympic Park
The Callaghan Valley, located 50km/30mi north of Squamish, is just a 30-minute drive away, and this is the home of the Whistler Olympic Park, which was the venue for 2010 Winter Games cross-country skiing, as well as ski jumping.
The Whistler Olympic Park has 55km/34mi of groomed trails to explore, ranging from beginner- to expert-level terrain, and 5km/3mi of that total is lighted at night.
