2-Day Sea to Sky Itinerary

Day 1: Start your holiday with a family visit to the Sea to Sky Gondola, effective immediately all Gondola guests can choose to ride in a private gondola cabin with members of their group. After your 10-minute vertical journey, stop in at the Summit Lodge to rent a pair of snowshoes and pick up a trail map. Be sure to walk across the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge, snap some photos along the kid-approved "Spirit Trail" and make your way to the tube park for an afternoon of family fun. Refuel inside the Summit Lodge, where you will find a delicious cafe and cafeteria-style, self-serve eatery loaded with tasty, local food.

Check-in at Executive Suites Hotel and Resort for an evening splashing around in the outdoor pool and playing games in your well-appointed studio, one or two-bedroom suite. All suites include a full-size kitchen and large screen TV. Video games and consoles are available for rent from the front desk. After you have settled in, head downstairs to Norman Rudy's for a delicious dinner before retiring for the night. 

Day 2: Stop for a bite to eat at Caffe Garibaldi located inside the Squamish Adventure Centre and take a lesson in history at Britannia Mine Museum where you can pan for gold, head on an underground tour and see BOOM! a multisensory experience that brings the iconic, cliff-hugging Mill 3 back to life.
