Sea-to-Sky Running - Page 3


Go when ... Avoid the rainy season from October through January and take advantage of the summer's (July through August) relatively dry conditions, when daytime temperatures can reach the 80s.

Best eats ... Treat yourself to fantastic pizza at the Eagle's Nest or cool off at the Howe Sound Brewing Company (howesound.com) with a pint of Diamond Head Stout or Devil's Elbow India Pale Ale. For an early morning jolt, grab a cup of joe at the Bean Around the World (cowboycoffee.ca), a small, funky shop that serves coffee bought directly from a Guatemalan farmer.

Pitstop ... Valhalla Pure Outfitters (shop.vpo.ca) is a camping and climbing shop that has trail-running gear, apparel and Squamish trail maps.

Sleep ... Go primitive at Alice Lake Provincial Park, which provides potable water, showers and trails just a step from your tent. Or at downtown's Mountain Retreat Hotel and Suites (mountainretreathotel.bc-accommodations.com), relax in a soothing post-run hot tub.

Resources ... The Squamish Trails Society (squamishtrails.ca) provides trail maps and descriptions. For general tourism information, see MySquamish.ca.
