Upper Elaho Valley Conservancy was established as part of the Sea to Sky Land and Resource Management Plan area. The conservancy contains the headwaters of the Elaho River, which has formed a large valley that has been carved out to form an 80-metre deep canyon with sheer volcanic rock cliffs on either side.
The conservancy protects extensive old-growth forest and provides habitat for moose, mountain goat and grizzly bears.
This conservancy contains important First Nations’ cultural, spiritual and heritage values.
The conservancy is located approximately 60 kilometres southwest of Pemberton and approximately 100 kilometres northwest of Squamish.
BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories. This park webpage may not adequately represent the full history of this park and the connection of Indigenous Peoples to this land. We are working in partnership with Indigenous Peoples to update our websites so that they better reflect the history and cultures of these special places.
