Squamish is a great place to spend any time of year, but spring is extra special. Whether you’re an adventure-seeking visitor or an everyday explorer, there are enough spring activities in Squamish to keep you busy all season long. Here are our top five reasons why Spring is simply the best season in Squamish.
1. More Sunshine and Longer Days
Do you want to play golf after breakfast, go skiing after lunch and enjoy a relaxing boat ride after dinner? With extended daylight hours and warmer weather, you can do them all without ever leaving Squamish. The most difficult thing about spring is deciding what activity to do first!
2.Winter in the Alpine and Spring in Town
The snow may be melting in town, but winter is hanging on in the alpine. Bundle up and enjoy some backcountry skiing and snowmobiling at higher elevations. Once you’re ready for sunshine and warmer weather, head back to lower elevations for Squamish hiking, mountain biking, boating and horseback riding. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, head 40 minutes north to Whistler and experience the ride of your life with Ziptrek Ecotours. The opportunities for adventure are endless!
3.Best Time to Hit the Patios for Apres Adventure
After you wrap up a day full of adventure, snag a spot on a local patio and enjoy a refreshing drink. There’s no better way to continue taking in the scenery after a long day outside, and we guarantee you’ll be inspired to start planning more outdoor activities.
Check out a few of our favorite patios around town:
Match Eatery – Enjoy a great view and catch a glimpse of climbers making their way up the Chief.
Pepe & Gringos – The Mexican-inspired margaritas taste even better on their sunny patio.
Howe Sound Brewpub – Enjoy a locally-brewed seasonal beer and a great view.
Watershed Grill – You can’t go wrong with delicious food, open air and stunning mountain & river views.
4. Warmer Days Mean Fewer Layers!
Remember those patios we mentioned? Gloves and fleece won’t be necessary!
As the temperature rises, you can leave the layers at home and let your style shine through. Put your outdoor gear away and check out Squamish’s very own Stylezone for some post-adventure fashion.
5. Cool Mornings and Evenings
Hit the Squamish hiking and biking trails in the spring, and enjoy the breeze before summer hits. You can still get away with fewer layers during extended daylight hours, but you don’t have to deal with the extra heat. What more could you ask for?
