The road is in great condition and very scenic. Great views of the inlets as you head towards Whistler with fantastic Blackcomb and Whister Mountain views closer to Whistler. As you are heading back to Vancouver, spectacular views of the snow covered mountains.

A must see for any visitor. I live here and never tire of the vistas and scenery. The expanded and renovated road is very safe now. A pleasant drive with good signage but pick the places you plan to stop. It will avoid disappointed misses which are easy with all of the distractions.

This has to be one of the most beautiful highways I've ever seen. The drive out of Vancouver across the Lions gate Bridge is lovely but once over the hill and driving along Howe Sound - spectacular! Hint: if going on an organised tour, be sure to sit on the drivers side for the best views. If driving yourself -... More

Other than the amazing view, you can stop next to Squamish to admire the Chief and the climbers that are always there, at the new information center at the entrance to Squamish (good coffee and ice cream as well as all the maps of the area), stop at the impressive Shannon Falls, walk around Alice lake and even right before...

Head North from Vancouver to Squamish and stop at the Sea to Sky Gondola. It is worth the price of admission for the view from the top of the Squamish Chief. If you suffer from vertigo, just shut your eyes on the way up.

Took a drive up the sea to sky last week with Furry creek as our destination. The sun came out as we left Vancouver and the drive was beautiful...sun and sea! We arrived at Furry Creek golf club within an hour. We had lunch at the clubhouse and enjoyed the view. What a great day to drive up the sea... More

Have driven this road a few times over the past 3 decades, winter and summer. It is just beautiful. The combination of mountains and sea is something special. The mountain sides around Squamish are spectacular.

I had the time of my life driving my new sports car through the mountains and onto this gorgeous trail. The highway underwent several upgrades and improvements in 2010 which were much needed from a safety point of view. It is a bit treacherous in the winter months and snow tires are mandatory during that time of year. I was... More
