Wow! what an awesome experience. Great gondola ride with stunning views. Once at the top the cafe/restaurant is great for a bite to eat. Can enjoy eating looking at stunning views. At the top great walks are mapped out for the adventurous, some easy walks, moderate and a little harder and longer but well worth doing. Oh, the suspension bridge is an added venture which you need to cross to commence some of the walks or treks.
Good gift shop too.

The sea to sky experience itself was amazing and worth it.
On the way back I was having mobility difficulties. I have a spinal cord injury but can walk. Standing is an issue especially when fatigued.
My husband asked if we could skip the line. He looked me up and down then said no, you can clearly walk. We explained standing was difficult to no avail. Accessible means nothing when you are able and uneducated.
I expected better.

Almost didn't take the drive from Vancouver as it was overcast there. Took a risk and left for Squamish after lunch. Skies cleared and the weather was better in Squamish. Mostly dry trails with some snow covered, slippery patches. Gondolas have a small open window to get a good photograph with no refection. No lines ups/better parking non-weekend (Mon 1pm). Limited Camper van parking. Suspension bridge was a bonus. Many trails & one shorter trail for younger kids and walkers with mobility issues. Saw/heard birds and chipmunks. Didn't see eagles. Expensive gift shop/$12 ice cream cones at the truck. Charge for Dogs in the gondola. If you pass by the entrance it's many kms to turn around and go back due to divided highway. Stop along the route back to Vancouver for free scenic photo look out points. Saw sea lions at Porteau Cove Marine park at the end of the wharf. (free parking/toilets).

A wonderful journey to almost 3,000 ft above sea level. The gondola is quick and with perfect weather today the views were jaw dropping. The cafe at the top had an excellent range of food with delicious coffee at reasonable prices. Well worth visiting

Went May 2023. Weather was great and the view is amazing. There was only a brief wait to get on the gondola. This is a stop you must do

Loved our trip up on the Sea to Sky gondola in Squamish. The journey to the top takes about 10 minutes so it went much higher than we expected so make sure you've put your hiking boots on, trainers won't cut it at the top (especially in the snow!).

The view promised to be amazing and in better weather I'm sure it is but if you're there in winter then it may well be foggy at the top and then the views simply won't be possible.

The trails looked brilliant in the snow but being unprepared for the weather we were unable to make the most of these unfortunately.

Perfect for couples, friends and families alike with a tubing ring at the top too!

The restaurant at the top was brilliant with some delicious dishes and a hot chocolate which hit the spot after I lost all feeling in my fingers from making snowballs! (Yes, still a big kid!)

I will definitely be back and keen to see what it looks like in summer!

We had a great trip up the gondola and enjoyed the time at the top. There are some great trails accessible from the top and the views are spectacular!! The gondolas were not busy and we had one to ourselves both ways. The shop and cafe at the top were quite crowded so pleased that we went in the off season.

I had heard about this gondola and thought we might as well give it a shot. I’m glad we did, because it was just astounding – the road at the bottom was chilly and wet, but after the long gondola ride we had been transported high up to a winter wonderland, with jaw-dropping views, lots of trails to explore, and good food too.

When you see the price for a family of four you might do a double take, but trust me: it’s worth it. I’d happily visit again, and this time try some more trails!
