Sea To Sky Gondola: Winter Edition / by Jenn Chan

I'm so happy to finally have the chance to check out the iconic Sea To Sky Gondola! The $22 million Gondola began their operations in May 2014, and has been popular with tourists & locals since! There are 20 gondolas on the line and rises 885m from the base area to the Summit. On the ride up, you can see views of the Northshore Mountains, Shannon Falls, and the Sea to Sky Hwy & Howe Sound below you.

Once you get up to the Summit, there's a Summit Lodge with a large outdoor deck, complete with amazing views of Squamish.

There are a few walking & hiking trails once you're up there, like the First Nations Spirit Trail and the Panorama Trail. We took the Panorama Trail, which is about 1.6km towards the Stawamus Chief Viewing Platform.
