On some days forecasting the wind in Squamish is easy. Other days it can be challenging due to the variable conditions. There are several great resources which can help you to make a better prediction but some resources can be misleading and very inaccurate so ensure you check a few different ones before packing your car! 

Click on the links below to check real time conditions:

Squamish SPIT Sensor

Active May 15 – Sept 15

Squamish Terminals Sensor

Active all year but not 100% Accurate

Pam Rocks Conditions

Let you see when the wind switches to inflow


This is a Paid App, but it is very useful.

*The Squamish Terminal Sensor & the iKitesurf Sensor sit further downwind of the spit. As a result there maybe a few more knots on the spit than shown on the sensor

Current Wind

During the summer months the temperature gradient graph should be your first stop. This can give you a great indicator of wind. If the figures you’re seeing on the gradient graph don’t look too favourable, your next stop should be to check the Howe Sound Marine Forecast. This is a system ran by Environment Canada. This is a great forecasting site and usually very accurate. On iKitesurf look at the current graph & use ‘quick look’ grey wind direction arrows to help predict the approximate time of the switch from outflow to inflow. Just above a grey line appears on the graph that one can use to help understand the potential increase or decrease in wind strength throughout the day. But the wind speed predicted is never accurate.
