The Squamish valley is the result of 250,000,000 year old mountains and volcanism, clashing with prehistoric glaciers

Once you see beyond the boundary of the Sea To Sky Highway you’ll never look at Squamish the same way

Whether you’re taking pictures on an iPhone or with a DSLR there’s incredible landscapes in every direction just waiting to be captured and shared

For $150 a Build Back Tourism ticket holder plus up to two friends (that’s just $50 per person with three people) can soar over the Howe Sound and Coast Mountains amongst ancient mountains, plateaus, valleys, lakes, rivers, fjords and wetlands on a 15 minute private guided flight over Squamish. 

Maximum weights apply and all flights depart from the Sea To Sky Air base at the Squamish Airport.

 
What do pilots sound like?

Our pilots are passionate about British Columbia, Squamish, Whistler, Vancouver and the Sea To Sky Corridor. They love sharing what they know about the region’s legendary geology and history so we outfitted every seat with a two-way headset and microphone. Think of us like your best friend taking you on a road trip to all their favourite places. Listen to your pilot tell stories as you fly, ask questions about features and landmarks, or simply sit back and enjoy the view.

What if the weather changes and we can’t fly?

There are a limited number of Build Back Tourism flights available, so we highly recommend picking a date with your friends and booking as soon as you can.

Then, if we get to the day of your flight and the weather doesn’t let us fly, no problem. We’ll reschedule your flight to another day and time that works for you, all year round.

From the Flight

The Howe Sound Fjord

A fjord is an ancient river valley that was widened, straightened and deepened by glacial ice over the millennia. Flowing 42km toward the Pacific Ocean from the mouth of the Squamish River, the Howe Sound is home to whales, seals, sea lions and thousands of marine species. It’s dotted with islands and sits in the traditional territory of the Squamish Nation. It is estimated that annually the Howe Sound watershed provides $800 million to $4.7 billion in ecosystem services contributing to breathable air, drinkable water and protection from natural disasters.

Watts point

Squamish Coast Mountains

The southern coast mountains and the north cascades contain some of the most perplexing geology in British Columbia. Instead of a few big terranes they are made up of a structural stack of little ones created in the Jurassic and the mid-Cretaceous period. A tectonic plate charging south (instead of north) dragged with it island arcs not related to the North American continent. Eventually the plate and the islands collided with what is now the coast of British Columbia creating the base for the Coast Mountains.
