The ten-minute gondola ride to 885m above sea level provides sweeping views of the Howe Sound and surrounding mountains. Once you arrive at the top many more adventures await you from our exhilarating tube park to snowshoe trails and some of BC’s best ski touring terrain. You’ll never be short of adventure at the Sea to Sky Gondola.
The Sea to Sky Gondola region gets some of the deepest snow in North America and has a wide variety of terrain whether you are an experienced snowshoeing or a first-timer.
The backcountry terrain around and on Sky Pilot Mountain, Co Pilot, Skyline Ridge and Goat Ridge is NOT for the beginner or inexperienced back country skiers. This is big terrain, complex in nature with lots of steeps, alpine bowls, first growth forests, pillow lines, extreme couloirs AND the associated risks you would expect to find in a complex alpine terrain environment. The Shannon Creek watershed offers over 1300 hectares (+3000 acres) of new terrain. With up to 1100m of vertical and four alpine bowls, there is no shortage of terrain to explore.
For those who are up for the challenge there are some big rewards likely to be paid out!
Our network of trails and roads offers a huge range of options – short or long, steep or flat….your choice. Experience winter snowshoeing and ski touring as it was meant to be, quiet solitude, crisp mountain air, a snow laden forest, and breathtaking views.
