The changing of the seasons always brings a fresh perspective. With the coming of winter, a new story weaves its way into Southwest British Columbia.

Perched high above Howe Sound in the Coast Mountains sits the Sea to Sky Gondola. In an area once accessible to only the most dedicated and hardy mountain folk, the Sea to Sky Gondola brings a different winter experience to Southwest BC. Just a snowball's throw from Vancouver, the gondola provides an opportunity for visitors to get out of the rain and experience winter as it was meant to be; towering, snow capped peaks, crisp mountain air, alpine forest and a cozy lodge from which to venture out.

 

On the interior side of things, the Summit Lodge, sitting at the top of the gondola, is the perfect basecamp for your snowy pursuits. Enjoy majestic, high alpine vistas while you sip a locally brewed espresso or come for a gourmet dinner and watch the winter sun dip slowly over the Southern Coast Mountains.

 

Outside, the possibilities are endless: Take a walk through snow-laden forest and spend a moment listening to the quiet solitude of winter. Grab some snowshoes and explore a little further on some of our trails. Bring the family and spend the day sliding around in our tube park, with views of Skypilot and the surrounding peaks. With rosy cheeks, watch the kids blow bubbles in their hot chocolates at the end of day of winter fun.

 

Further afield, the doors open wider. Bring your skis and skins and spend the day in the backcountry. With a ten-minute ride, the Sea to Sky Gondola brings you right to the doorstep of some of the biggest backcountry terrain in the area. Pack a lunch and snowshoe your way up to the alpine with Sky Pilot and Habrich looming above. Or bring your ice axes and spend a day or three sending winter routes up the surrounding peaks and gullies. So much natural terrain to explore and experience. 

 

The Sea to Sky Gondola offers a new take on what winter can be. It’s a place to come and feel winter at its purest, away from the crowds and the grey rain of urban life. Crisp mountain air, snow laden forest and high alpine peaks overlooking some of the most beautiful terrain in British Columbia…winter at the gondola is about being and dreaming and trying something new. Come and visit.
