Went with friends to climb to sea to sky summit. I've never been climbing before, so needless to say I should have brought more water. However, after a 4 hour climb and 900 meters later haha we reached the top and it was so worth it! We did stop to take pictures on the way up as well. When we... More

We have driven this Ten+ times in the last 25 years. . . THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS ALLOWING ENOUGH TIME (4 hours) to STOP at EVERY view-point, information marker, "Stop & Smell the Oxygen that comes off the Trees". . . Watch the Eagles north of Squamish . . . IF you just "BOOT-IT-THROUGH" to Whistler, it's only 90... More

This is one of the very best getaway drives. The views of the mountain and ocean are so beautiful. The highway is known to have lots of accidents and requires caution. I got stuck on this highway for 5 hours not long ago due to a fatal accident that shut the southbound lane down. Aside from a windy road, there... More

All the way from Vancouver to Whistler. Breathtaking views overlooking the Strait of Georgia from the mountains.

Much enhanced before the winter Olympics years ago, it's always a breathtaking ride - any time of year. Still some slow spots, but well worthwhile.

The Sea to Sky Highway, Highway 99, is a must do if you have time and are in the Vancouver area. This route takes you past Horseshoe Bay all the way to Whistler, surrounded by some of the most incredible natural views you'll encounter anywhere. From charming little waterfalls to huge rushing ones, from rolling hills to scenic mountain ranges,... More

WoW! The drive from Vancouver to Whistler is mind blowing. Spectacular vistas, nice quaint waterfalls, superb motoring. Be certain to stop the car, get out, take photos (in safe zones only) and enjoy. This was one of the very best aspects of my recent trip to the Pacific Northwest. Spectacular enjoyment!

After a few days working in Vancouver, my 19 year son and I decided to take the drive up to Whistler for snowboarding. What a great idea this was! What an amazing drive. Ocean and mountains to our left, mountains and rainforest to the right; seriously one of the most scenic drives I have had taken in North America. When... More

Such an easy drive. The lookouts are stunning & the waterfalls beautiful. The roads are so quiet and you can take your time to take in all that the Sea to Sky Highway has to offer.

What a wonderful drive, inclines and sea level and all the while terrific views. One doesn't know where to look first. But the good thing is one view as you drive up and the other as you drive down. Creeks, waterfalls, mountains, glaciers, woods and water. How great is that!
