Explore Squamish

Sea to Sky Gondola

The Sea to Sky Gondola is your doorway to year-round outdoor adventure including, interpretive walks, panoramic views, viewing platforms, and the 9,000 square foot Summit Lodge with sit-down dining. Get ready to 'Discover Adventure by Nature'!

The 10-minute ride to the top takes you 885m above sea level where stunning views of Howe Sound and coastal mountains will welcome you from every direction.

Viewing Platforms

At the top, you’ll find three main viewing platforms:

Summit Lodge Viewing Deck-  This dramatic space extends 9,000 square feet and includes expansive decks with sweeping views as well as two restaurants, a retail space and facilities. Enjoy the views while you dine and shop, and in inclement weather the floor to ceiling windows and huge douglas fir beams make it a cozy place to enjoy nature from a sheltered spot.

Chief Overlook Viewing Platform- A dramatic platform that jets out to overlook climbers on the backside of the Chief and the boating, windsurfing and kiteboarding action on Howe Sound

The Spirit Viewing Platform- An area which includes interpretive information on the surrounding landscape and its significance to the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh) First Nations people.

 

Dining

At the summit you'll find several dining options to satisfy your hunger.

Sky Pilot Restaurant - market style menu for casual dining at the summit. In partnership with Freshii, you'll find an assortment of wraps, sandwiches, bowls, salads, snacks, beverages and more. Grab a craft beer, cocktail or glass of wine from the Edge Bar, or come summertime enjoy tasty BBQ while you savour a stunning sunset.

Co-Pilot Café - grab and go snacks, hot and cold handcrafted beverages, freshly baked pastries, and delicious sandwiches.

Backyard Bites - Located in the Backyard Plaza, indulge in a variety of gourmet poutines, french fries and kid favourites. A great place for a quick bite and a refreshing beverage after your summit adventure.
