Soaring over Squamish

Hikers have yet another reason to visit BC. The Sea-to-Sky Gondola, just outside Squamish, is opening on May 16 and will shuttle visitors 885 metres up a mountain adjacent to the famed Stawamus Chief. At the top, there are several hiking trails, viewing platforms overlooking Howe Sound, a rope suspension bridge and several food and interpretive centres. The ride to the top will take about 10 minutes, but anybody who wants a challenge can tackle the Sea-to-Summit trail instead, which climbs 916 metres and takes about three to four hours. The $22-million attraction expects 300,000 visitors per year, and will compete with the nearby Grouse Skyride and Whistler’s Peak-2-Peak. Tickets: adults $35, ages 13 to 18 $23, ages 6 to 12 $14. Download only $10. tel: (855) 732-8675. seatoskygondola.com.
