The drive along the Sea-to-Sky highway offers some unique and impressive vistas. The road can be challenging at times; so, two or more drivers are highly recommended. One drives, the other(s) look. There are more opportunities to make stops on the way South from Squamish; left turns on the way North to get closer to the water are illegal, and dangerous, at many of the more scenic stops. Park, picnic and rest area facilities are available at Porteau Cove and Shannon Falls, but you have to get all the way to Squamish for reliable food options during the year.

I love driving down winding roads that are not boring and this road has lots of that. The view, is amazing, such a scenic drive, lots of areas to stop and hike and just enjoy from waterfalls, to forests to shoreline. Worth the detour from driving straight on Highway 1 to Vancouver

I love going on the Sea to Sky HIghway when ever I get the chance. Since they've improved it for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the highway feels better. You encounter a lot of beautiful scenery. Only thing that I dislike are the crazy drivers who go way over the speed limit. 10 to 15 km/h above the speed llimit is okay but there are some that go way pass that and it can be a bit dangerous when it's raining or snowing. Otherwise, it's a beautiful highway to go on.

This was the first time we have travelled this highway since it was upgraded for the 2010 Olympics. It has been improved greatly and the views and scenery are wonderful. The highway makes a visit to Whistler or beyond a good experience.

If you are looking to replicate the driving thrill of the Stelvio or Furka passes in the Alps or Angel's Crest in CA, the Sea to Sky Highway will disappoint you. The wide, sweeping roads give the distinct impression that exceeding the speed limit to add a level of driving excitement would attract unwanted attention from the local constabulary.
However, there is no denying that this route represents one of the greatest compact North American scenic powerhouses that you can enjoy from a car. Sweeping vistas greet you at every corner -- it's a beautiful drive. Just note that it's a paradise-like drive, not a driver's paradise.
