north shore
fair-isle head turner

Ocean, trees, mountains: these are the basic building blocks of the Pacific Coast. Vancouver's North Shore has all of the above. You can kayak along sandy beaches, hike through steeply wooded slopes, and to ski tour over the glaciers and icefields of the Coast Mountains.

This fair-isle pattern is an ode to our beloved west-coast landscape!
