Brackendale

Brackendale is a small community in the Canadian province of British Columbia just north of Squamish town centre, but still within the District of Squamish. It is located near the confluence of the Squamish River and the Cheakamus River. It is intersected primarily by Government Road and Depot Road. The CN railway (formerly BC Rail) traverses it north–south. It includes the remarkable "'Eagle Run" area, the wintering home of thousands of Bald eagles.ClimateThe climate of Brackendale is mild and dry in the summertime and mild and damp in the winter. The coastal maritime climate is moderated by nearby Howe Sound, but outflow winds from the Interior via the Whistler Valley and the many large icecaps in the Pacific Ranges are so fierce that winds of this type are sometimes known as squamish winds.HistoryBrackendale was named for Thomas Hirst Bracken, Brackendale's first Postmaster, who also operated a general store and the Bracken Arms Hotel. When the hotel burned down he returned to England and died there. Brackendale is served by two schools in the Sea to Sky School District (48); Brackendale Elementary School and Don Ross Secondary School. It is the location of the Squamish airport (CYSE), with a runway long enough to handle light planes and helicopters.
