Store Locations

Proudly equipping adventure in the Coast Mountains since 1989. With two store locations in Whistler, one in Squamish, and free shipping within Canada on orders over $100, Escape Route is always there for your adventure needs.

The Coast Mountains are our home, and are where our three stores are located.  The mothership is in the Marketplace in Whistler, been in town since 1989 and we love it.  Squamish opened up in 2010.  That has been a lot of fun.  Squamtown people get after it and love their gear, they keep us on our feet!

Our Alpine Demo Centre in Whistler opened last year with a goal of responsible gear and knowledge sharing.  This alpine hub is a spot to grab gear, have a coffee, meet your friends in the morning and get out there.  We love sharing adventures with people and the Alpine Demo Centre is the spot to do it!
