…of gondolas & wine…


“Gondola numbers soar as tourists go from Sea to Sky”

British Columbia’s ‘on-the-way-to-Whistler’ newest tourist attraction, the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC is delighting visitors while operators are thrilled that visits are up 40% over projections for the first year of operations.

“The gondola is located two kilometres south of Squamish on the Sea to Sky Highway. At the crest, there’s a 9,000-square-foot summit lodge with a 6,000 square-foot-deck, restaurant and gift shop, along with the Sky Pilot suspension bridge, and access to 30 kilometres of trails including two kilometres of “stroller-ready” trails leading to several viewing decks and lookouts. There’s also the Sea to Summit Trail from the base of the gondola to the crest (a three- to four-hour hike).”
