Although the name “Squamish” could indeed be found on maps prior to May 16, 2014, it wasn’t until the Sea to Sky Gondola officially opened on that date that the community’s place as a world-class mountain destination was highlighted by the likes of The Washington Post and The New York Times.
Since then, the Sea to Sky Gondola has become a major attraction, offering a scenic 20-minute gondola ride up to the fabulous Summit Lodge, featuring stunning views of Howe Sound, the Stawamus Chief, the Coast Mountain Range and the Squamish community.
In the past three years, the Gondola has also ramped up its offerings, adding new hiking trails and experiences, as well as yummy food and refreshments at its Summit Lodge, where you will also find arguably Canada’s best patio, with the most spectacular panoramic views. Visitors will also find tons of family-friendly activities and events going on throughout the year, with the spring and summer seasons offering lots to do when the weather warms up.
