Summer Solstice Celebration

June 21, 2014 | 9:00 - 21:00

Begin the first day of summer with the Sea to Sky Gondola's Summer Solstice Celebration on June 21.

What better way to celebrate the longest day of the year and the first day of summer than an adventure packed day at the Sea to Sky Gondola. The event starts at 9:30am with the Skyline Ridge Run, the first ever trail running race at the Summit of the Sea to Sky Gondola. There is both a 10km and 21km distance. To register for the race, please CLICK HERE.

Activities to follow include a music line-up that will be sure to impress, including The River and The Road. There will be summer solstice arts & crafts presented by Forager's School of Nature, and an adventure photography exhibit showcasing the fresh history of building the Sea to Sky Gondola, and award-winning photography by Paul Bride as published by RedBull. The celebration continues into the evening and will include a pre-registered sunset yoga, fireside chats and late night summer beats with DJ Sheila to kick off our sunset music series which will take place every Friday night in July & August from 6-9pm.
