Sea to Sky Gondola Adventure

You can go ahead and add the Sea to Sky Gondola to your British Columbia must visit list.  I have driven by it many times and I am so glad that I finally went! The views were spectacular and whether you are you are day-tripper, tourist or on a little staycation…you will have a great day. 

Sea to Sky Gondola

The Sea to Sky Gondola is located in Squamish, which is on the Sea to Sky Highway between Vancouver and Whistler.

Sea to Sky Gondola

There are many hiking trails at the top of the mountain, so you can easily make this a whole day event if you want. You can even hike from the base up the mountain (3-4 hours) instead of taking the gondola.  I really want to try that another day and then relax on the way down in the gondola.

For those that aren’t hiking up, you can ride up on the gondola in just 10 minutes. It is an 885 metre trip, and you have an amazing 360 degree view in the gondola.

Sea to Sky Gondola

There are several viewing platforms at the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola which give you birds eye views of the Howe Sound fjord, the Chief, and the Garibaldi Mountain range. It is easy to get so many picture perfect images…so bring your camera.

I went up early in the day because I planned to hike some of the trails at the top and it wasn’t too busy. However, I am told that in the peak season it is quite a bit busier in the afternoon. If you don’t like crowds…go early!

I really want to go back in the winter. You can snowshoe during the winter season, making this a great year-round destination. I think it would be magical to be on the view platforms while it is snowing.  🙂

Not only is there a gondola ride and viewing platforms at the Sea to Sky Gondola, but there also is the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge, too. I am not too fond of suspension bridges, but if I just look straight ahead I am fine. I hope no one starts bouncing on it when I am on it…because that is terrifying!

In the mornings they have yoga classes at the top of the mountain. How awesome would that be to experience?!?

I was totally surprised that I had cell/data service at the top of the mountain.  I even saw some others searching for Pokemon.  🙂

If you are planning on enjoying some of the hiking trails, make sure you dress appropriately and bring snacks, water and a map. It is important to always be prepared.

A special thank you to the Sea to Sky Gondola for the opportunity to visit. All opinions are my own.

  1. Gorgeous photos girl, we live in such a beautiful part of the world! I’ve yet to do the Gondola actually but have done many hikes around the area and they’re all so breathtaking. After reading this I really want to go up now!

    That suspension bridge looks amazing AND terrifying! I would definitely have to look straight ahead. The views are beautiful and I would love to do the Gondola ride. I’d also like to visit in the winter and snowshoe. I’ve never done that before and I’ve always wanted to try it.
