The ride up and down was good. The food was my last favorite part. Buffet style and mostly grease. It is beautiful scenery and trails but I would not go during peak season. Too many ppl.

Family members wanted to experience the Peak to Peak Gondola ride and to have lunch on the mountain without doing any skiing. While the Gondola is an engineering marvel and the views are outstanding, $60 per person seems like a very high price to pay for those views. On the plus side, the gondola ride up to the Peak to...

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Plenty of snow, great paths to walk on through the forest, and a walk across the suspension bridge is not to be missed. The scenery is beautiful, across to Howe Sound and over the mountains. If you don't want to be outside in the snow, you can sit inside and gaze... More

Gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains, water and Squamish. Lots to do at the top, even if you're not cross country skiing or snowshoeing.

Take time on the drive from Vancouver to Whistler to stop at the S2S Gondola. The tubing is great and the views in winter are spectacular.

We booked the Sea to Sky tickets as a day trip from Vancouver. It was great. It is only an hours drive from the city and the snow was fantastic. We did the guided snowshoeing up in the mountains. The guide were friendly and knowledgable and the equipment were good quality. The only thing not so good is the walk... More

The sea to sky gondola is fun for all ages! Gorgeous views going up and down, great hikes and easier walking trails for whatever you like. Cafe up top so you can eat and admire the scenery, and there's a little play area for young children. Perfect family activity!
