Sea-to-Summit Hike to the Sea-to-Sky Gondola

Starting from the same parking lot as the iconic Stawamus Chief is the less-traveled neighbouring trail of the Sea-to-Summit. The route travels through thick forest and up a rocky and root-filled steep trail to the Sea-to-Sky Gondola. The bridge here is gorgeous, and there are views all the way down the Howe Sound that are so rewarding after your climb. If you choose not to hike, you can take the Gondola for $40 round-trip. If you have hiked up, you must take the Gondola back down for safety reasons, at just $10 per person.
