We are from NZ but lived in Alberta for 4 years and when we recently visited Vancouver again we did this drive as it was the closest we could get to feeling we were back in the Rockies again. It is a lovely lovely drive and make sure to stop at Galileo for a coffee and a great scone on your way up. Near Whistler on the side road to the ski jump area we twice found a black bear at the side of the road that we watched for 30 mms or so as it happily grazed.

Driving from Richmond to Whistler was not as difficult as expected because the highway roads were clean and wide. We started at 7am and reached Whislter at around 2 pm. We stopped at Horseshoe Bay, Shannon Falls, Alice Lake and finally beautiful Brandywine Falls. The stunning and breathtaking scenic views were unforgettable and enjoyable. An unexpected travel before reaching the "beautiful" early summer Whistler.

We've made this drive on daylight and at sunset. Both times it was breathtaking, but driving this highway as the sun is going down is unlike anything else I've seen from the car before, and that includes two cross country trips. An absolute must, and make it at sunset if you can!

Not an easy drive , but worth it. The views are awesome and if you drive down to Lilliooet it's even better. We enjoyed the descend better, because there was hardly any traffic. Well worth the slow drive.

This is one of the most gorgeous drives I've taken. It was amazing to see both mountains and shoreline simultaneously. Also, it seemed like each turn had a different, scenic view. There are also provincial parks along the highway that you can stop (and hike) at. Definitely a must-do if you are in the Vancouver area!
