Landing Place of the Thunderbird


The Landing Place of the Thunderbird: Black Tusk B.C.

“This piece of artwork was created especially for the FIS Nordic Jr./U23 World Ski Championships. The Black Tusk mountian’s iconic upper spire is visible from a great distance in all directions and is most noticeable at various points along the Sea to Sky Highway from Vancouver to Whistler.

The Black Tusk is the remnant of a much larger volcano that formed during two periods of volcanic activity between 1.3 and 1.1 million years ago, and sits within the northernmost reaches of the Canadian Volcanic Arc.

To the indigenous Squamish people, the mountain is known as t’ak‘t’ak mu’yin tl’a in7in’a’xe7en. Translated, it means “Landing Place of the Thunderbird”; the jagged shape of the mountain and its black colouring are said to come from the supernatural Thunderbird’s lightning.”
