About the Area
Spearhead feels lucky to call Nelson home. With our state-of-the-art headquarters on a treed acreage on the North Shore and our newest urban office space in the heart of the city, we get to have it all.

The mild climate and proximity to mountain trails and lakes make for world-class skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing in the winter, as well as paddling, hiking, fishing, climbing, and mountain biking in the summer.

If speeding down a mountainside isn’t your idea of fun, Downtown Nelson has plenty to offer, too. With blocks of boutiques, alluring back lanes, art galleries, restaurants, pubs, and live music venues, the town is bustling with locals and visitors alike. So, whether you head into the hills for an adventure, lounge by the lake or visit one of the many community events in town, chances are Nelson has something for you.
