there are plenty of new passing lanes and views along the Sea to Sky Highway since it was upgraded for the 2010 Olympics. Stop and see Shannon Falls on your way to Whistler and go on a little hike to enjoy the waterfall. Squamish has lots to offer along the way and for those who like kite surfing this is... More

I drive this highway from Vancouver to Britannia Beach for work and love it. The views all along the highway are so beautiful. From the ocean to the mountains. On rainy days the visibility can be low and it gets slippery so be careful. It is a windy road as well but still an easy drive.

We drove from Vancover to Lillooet and the first part of our journey was the Sea to Sky Highway. The road gradually climbs along a very long inlet up to Squamish, going through former native land. The views are great, sea, mountains and of couse the dense BC forests. The road is a 2 lane highway so drive with care... More

You can't go wrong with this road. Stop at Horseshoe Bay for a quick lunch either before or after then head north, either to Squamish or continue to Whistler stopping at Shannon Falls. Easily compared to the fjords of Norway as the mountains drop into the sea. Many legends told about the First Nations who settled there long ago and... More

This is probably an unfair review in that I'm sure the scenery is wonderful, but we didn't see any of it all the way from Squamish to Lilloet. We were stuck in cloud and mist. Sometimes we could see 100 meters, sometimes not far past the front of the car. We also greatly unserestimated the time needed for this route... More

We did the drive from Vancouver to Whistler last Sunday. I'm still blown away by how breath taking the views were. I highly recommend stopping at Squamish to ride the gondola to the mountain top. Great place for taking photos. We also visited Shannon falls & brandywine falls & the Whistler bungy jump location which you can view free of... More

It's kind of like highway 1 in California but has a special feel, the road was redone for the olympics so a very smooth ride. People say it's quite dangerous but I felt okay, you only drive at about 100km/hour so turns are easy to manage. Let the passengers enjoy the view and take pictures and eyes on the road... More

The views of Howe Sound are spectacular. The new Sea to Sky Gondola is definitely worth a visit. It takes you to the mountain top where the views are breathtaking. There is a nice cafe with large cantilevered deck. There are several good paths around the top of the mountain, which provide other great vistas.
