Fabulous 100

Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.

"Less than 10 years ago, fewer than 100 climbers lived in Squamish. Now there are more than 1,000. When you drive into the Chief camp ground you see licence plates from all over the States and Canada.

“It’s the social vibe that really hits you here,” says Jones. “When you slip off the highway you encounter a town which shares your appreciation for outdoor adventure.”

Squamish has one of the biggest mountain-bike clubs in Canada – 800 members out of a population of 16,000.
