Spring is officially here! Time to put away those snow pants (unless you’re an avid skier who wishes to keep up the winter sport as long as possible) and break out the backpacks and hiking boots. But while Squamish offers plenty of hiking trails that we’ve already covered in detail, lets take a look at some of the other exciting activities that Squamish has to offer you this Spring.

Paddleboarding

It’s still a little too cold out to hit the lakes for swimming, but it’s just nice enough to start paddleboarding. Whether you’re a total beginner or a seasoned veteran, paddleboarding is a delightful activity that you should try out as soon as possible, and where better to begin than in Squamish, featuring scenic views on the Howe Sound. No matter your skill level check out Norm Hann Expeditions for group packages to get your paddleboarding journey started.

Rock Climbing

Driving along the sea-to-sky, you may notice some daring adventurers scaling the side of the Stawamus Chief. While that climb is breathtaking, it’s also above the skill level of many rock climbers. Luckily for them, Squamish offers many beginner friendly rock faces for you to scale, as well as more challenging ventures once you’re more skilled and confident.

Total newbie to rock climbing? You’re still in luck. Rock climbing courses and guided group climbing sessions are also an option! Canada West Mountain School Intro Classes and Mountain Skills Academy and Adventures are great places to check out and get you on the right path to safe rock climbing.

Golfing

A springtime classic. The Squamish Valley Golf Club is officially open for tee time! Enjoy the full course or practice your swings at the driving range, then hit up the restaurant afterwards for a hearty meal. With specials like meatless Mondays, fish and chips Thursday, and an all-you-can-eat pasta buffet every Friday, there’s no reason not to go.

Keep your eyes peeled this April as well when Furry Creek Golf reopens their doors.
