“This is just one of the tools we are utilizing in order to best showcase the world-class recreation, attractions, dining and events that are drawing record visitor numbers to Squamish,” according to Tourism Squamish Executive Director Lesley Weeks. “We have essentially created a mobile tour guide that will improve the Squamish experience.”
