Riding the Sea to Sky Gondola

Continuing our road trip to Squamish, we stopped by the Sea to Sky Gondola just off of the Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99). This attraction offers easy access to breathtaking views of the Howe Sound and its surrounding mountains.

Heights don’t usually make me nervous, however, the howling wind caused visions of machine failure due to human-error to cross my mind several times on the 10-minute gondola ride to the Summit Lodge. 😛

Once a the top, we took in the beautiful sights at the Summit Lodge viewing platform. Visitors can stop for lunch or shop for souvenirs at the lodge. Instead, we chose to cross the Sea to Sky suspension bridge.

There are short hiking trails just past the suspension bridge that offer other amazing views of the Squamish mountains.

We had initially planned to explore the Capilano Suspension Bridge however it was disappointingly PACKED. The parking lot at the Capilano Suspension Bridge was bumper to bumper with tour buses so we ended up bypassing the experience. The Sea to Sky Gondola proved to be excellent alternative excursion, one that was significantly less crowded!
