Don't Forget Your Plaid! Axe Throwing is the Sea To Sky Corridor's Favourite New Activity

A third axe throwing venue is set to open in Squamish for September 2017

"It's awesome to see the excitement of axe throwing spread to new cities and it's been fantastic to watch the sport's exposure online!" Says James Anderson, owner of Forged Axe Throwing.

    WHISTLER, BC, August 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- From single to dual axes, and couples to groups, axe throwing is an activity on the rise in the Sea to Sky Corridor.

Function Junction-based Forged Axe Throwing has expanded from their current location with four axe throwing cages to offer a mobile unit, which premiered during the destination's popular Tough Mudder. In addition, the team at Forged has had their mobile unit in Squamish for a number of events this summer including the Squamish Beer Festival in partnership with the Squamish Days Loggers Sports Festival.

The growth of axe throwing has been phenomenal. Since its humble roots in Ontario, axe throwing has taken over Canada and many cities in the United States as well. Forged has seen their cages full almost daily since opening in May.

"Every day we're seeing a new angle for a throwing shot pop up in our Instagram feed," says James Anderson, owner of Forged Axe Throwing. "It's awesome to see the excitement spread to new cities and it's been fantastic to watch the sport's exposure online!"

And the popularity continues to grow. BATL, a Toronto based axe throwing chain will be opening in Squamish on Sept. 17, 2017. BATL will join the other two other operators in the region: Forged Axe Throwing in Whistler, and Axewood at the Sea To Sky Gondola.

"Squamish is definitely ready for a dedicated axe throwing venue and we're super excited to welcome BATL to the region," says Anderson.

Both Forged Axe Throwing and BATL are part of the National Axe Throwing Federation (NATF), so league members are able to compare their rankings directly against league members at another venue. Rankings are even available online at:
