Hahaha...see this is where we laugh. In the summer it is ok but you don't experience the shore the way it is meant to be Wet...crowds really aren't that bad, thisisn't a resort haahah. Fall / winter are best casue they are wet (this year I doubt there is much snow) Spring is good too. It is 10months a year of riding, just depends on your own personal danger level. Personally, my first time would be summer, takes abnormal amount of skill to ride that stuff when it is soaked.

Follow the climbers going to Squamish. They know when to go and not get rained out, somehow.

Most rock climbers go to Squamish for bouldering and bigwall stuff in late spring/early summer to avoid crowds and rain, and get some "nice" Northern Pacific weather. He's in Santa Cruz, and I know there's a large contingency of climbers in the area there. They're not hard to miss, with their bouldering pads strapped to the tops of their cars, loaded with 6 people.

If you come to bc to the shore when it is dry...you can't say you have ridden the shore. Its a style and atmosphere, not just stunts.

No worries, I know about squamish's climbing scene, its why squamish even exists beyond an indian reserve
