Located in the province of British Columbia, the town of Squamish is a magnet for outdoor adventurers, where forested mountains guard the community from all angles. Forestry has been the traditional core of the local economy, with tourism gaining a more important part. The highlight of the town is Stawamus Chief, a large granite massif whose cliff is ideal for rock climbing. It is thought to be the second largest granite monolith in the world.
