Enjoy Mountain Adventures, From Sea to Sky
Vancouver’s North Shore, Squamish, and Whistler are surrounded by vast wilderness and within a 30-minute to 1.5-hour drive of Metro Vancouver. The aptly named Sea-to-Sky Corridor is where the emerald waters of the Pacific Ocean collide with the lush rainforest and jagged peaks of the Coast Mountain range. The Átl’ḵa7tsem/Howe Sound watershed, which begins at Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver and stretches north to Black Tusk on the outskirts of Whistler, is so ecologically unique and rich with biodiversity it has been given a prestigious designation as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Experience the beauty for yourself: The Sea-to-Sky is a hub for outdoor activities. Take to the trails for hiking, running, and mountain biking or head out on a heart-pumping rafting excursion. Reach a distant summit by way of a scenic gondola ride at Grouse Mountain, the Sea to Sky Gondola, or Whistler Blackcomb, and cap off the trip with a warm drink and refreshments in a cozy lodge with alpine views (Christine’s Restaurant on Blackcomb Mountain is a must).
