With all of the trails, hills, rocks, and water in Squamish that we know and love, it’s hard to choose between all of the incredible adventure possibilities. Although we can’t help you choose between a climb in the sun or a run along the ocean, we can definitely help narrow down the best places to après following your activity of choice!
After all, does a big day of adventure even count if you don’t après?
Here are a few of our favourite places to aprés in Squamish:

Aprés is a favourite pastime here in BC. The time of day doesn’t matter, only the company you keep and a day’s adventures behind you to discuss. Enjoy it – you’ve earned it, after all!
