Squamish Chief Paragliding

Just to add to Celeta’s most recent post of “The Great Outdoors,” here is yet another outdoor rec activity for you to dig your teeth into – Paragliding! I took a quick jaunt up the Chief the other evening to catch the sunset and low and behold, I came across a few fellow Squamptonites catching the sunset in a more adventurous fashion. I have to admit, after watching them run off the edge of the rock and float into a tranquil bliss with the towering coastal mountains cascading into the Howe Sound below, I was overcome by an immediate sense of urgency to trade all my Squamish toys (bikes, skis, backpacks, EVERYTHING) for a paraglider kite just so I could experience it for myself. Hopefully one day I’ll be posting my own GoPro video jumping off the Chief!
