The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region of British Columbia incorporates the city of Vancouver, the all-season resort town of Whistler, and the Fraser Valley on the BC Lower Mainland. The Coast Mountains that run from Vancouver’s North Shore right up to Northern BC provide appreciable opportunities for recreation and outdoor adventure. Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort requires little introduction for the winter skiing and snowboarding it offers, but mountain biking and hiking in Whistler’s ancient forests and alpine draw just as many visitors in summer. Rock climbers from around the world challenge the granite face of Stawamus Chief in Squamish, and Desolation Sound on the Sunshine Coast is one of the premier kayaking and sailing destinations on the planet.
