Don't miss the new Sea to Sky Gondola near Squamish, B.C.

   The new Sea to Sky Gondola is a must see new attraction just outside Squamish, B.C. If you are thinking of heading to Whistler then be sure to stop at this great new facility along the way. It is right on the Sea to Sky Highway and in just 10 minutes you are whisked up to 900 meters with a bird's eye views of Howe Sound and the spectacular mountains that surround this area. Sky Pilot Mountain is clearly visible from the Summit Lodge and jagged Diamond Head looms in the distance. We visited with our daughter, Kristie, on Thursday, May 15 just before the "Official Opening" on Friday.  We hiked on a couple of  short trails near the Summit Lodge and had lunch on a huge patio that must have one of the best views in the all of B.C. If you plan to visit very often then the season pass for just $100 is one of the best deals going. For those interested in rock climbing or longer hikes, the Summit Lodge can be used as a jumping off point to further explore this area. We can't wait to come back in to see this area in the winter. Also be sure to visit Shannon Falls which is located next to the base of the Sea to Sky Gondola. For more information see:
