Emerge from the very heart of the coast mountains connected to the roots and history of the landscape we know today
Also known as the Pemberton Icecap, this icon of the coast mountains is a huge jigsaw puzzle of interconnected glaciers. The largest temperate latitude icefields in the world at 300 km2 (120 sq mi) the Pemberton Icefield is so vast that it is thought to create its own weather patterns. This vast tundra is also the starting point of the Squamish River.
Perched on the edge of a giant granite cliff, Hanging Glacier is an awe-inspiring sight from the sky. A long time ago the glacier filled the valley below. But now, as the glacier melts it has receded up the cliff face to its current precarious position and icefalls send car-sized debris tumbling onto the valley below.
Flying in our planes is just like driving in a car, with ventilation and heating controls. Simply dress for the season.
