      A tourism centre on the Sea to Sky Highway was damaged on Valentine’s Day for reasons yet to be determined.

      Squamish RCMP stated that officers responded to a report at 3:59 a.m. on February 14 about yelling and glass breaking at the Adventure Centre (38551 Loggers Lane, Squamish).

      When police arrived at the location, they found that 13 windows and patio glass panels had been smashed by rocks thrown at them, but the suspect or suspects did not gain entry to the centre.

      Several police units and police dogs were unable to locate the suspect or suspects.

      The total value of the damage has not yet been determined but is estimated to be in the tens of thousands.

      Investigators have been gathering evidence, including surveillance video from several locations.

      Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the Squamish RCMP at 604-862-6100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

      Squamish RCMP also stated that investigators are not linking this incident to any other recent events in the Squamish area.

      One of the most high-profile acts of vandalism in the area took place last summer when the cable of the Sea to Sky Gondola was deliberately cut during the night of August 10, causing 30 gondola cars to crash to the ground.

      After six months of repairs, the gondola reopened, earlier than scheduled, on February 14, which was the same day that the Adventure Centre was vandalized.
