Your Gateway to the entire Sea To Sky Corridor
The corridor cities include:
* Britannia Beach * Squamish * Whistler * Pemberton *
Britannia Beach originally came to be because of a mineral discovery by Dr. A. A. Forbes in 1888, which led to the development of a copper mine, followed by a community. The mine, once the largest producer of copper in the British Empire, closed down in 1974, became the BC. Museum of Mining and in 1988 was designated a National Historic Site.
Situated in a scenic valley at the tip of Howe Sound, Squamish is ideally located in the heart of Sea to Sky country, approximately half way between the City of Vancouver (60 km south) and the Resort Municipality of Whistler (58 km north).
In the late 1700’s, Captain Vancouver wrote in his diary about sailing into Howe Sound and his first contacts with the local tribe, the Sqohomish. The Indian word “Squamish” means ‘mother of the wind’ or ‘strong wind’.
Squamish is the “Winter Resort Destination” for the Bald Eagle. As many as 3,000 eagles, attracted by seasonal salmon runs, reside here from mid-November to mid-February. The dykes along the Squamish and Mamquam Rivers provide a perfect viewing spot. Squamish is also famous for staging the “World’s Largest Logging Show.” The Squamish Days Logger’s Sport Association is an organization of volunteers committed to providing an exciting and memorable community event. The festival is held every year on the BC Day long weekend thrilling visitors with the world class loggers skills competitions. Also, history buffs enjoy our West Coast Railway Heritage Park and daily summer visits by the Royal Hudson steam train.
The best way to describe Whistler in summer is to use a local saying: "You come to Whistler for the skiing and riding, but you stay for the summers." For those passionate about the mountains, this is the place to be for your summer holidays. In Winter, Whistler Blackcomb is the best choice for your winter holiday retreat. With over 7,000 acres of terrain there are places here other mountains can only dream of.
