The Sea to Sky Gondola is currently CLOSED until Spring 2020 but the Basecamp is open!
Front Country Trails
Three easily accessible walking trails start right from the top of the Gondola. All are graded trails and are relatively level with no steep climbs or descents.
The Panorama Trail
This 1.6 km long loop trail takes you through coastal forest, Alaskan Blueberry bushes and granite outcroppings. Viewpoints with handcrafted cedar benches dot the trail for rests with a view. The Panorama trail has an easy elevation grade of approximately 8-10% allowing people of all ages and fitness levels to complete it in under an hour.
Halfway through the trail is the Chief Overlook Platform: a cantilevered deck that juts out over a sheer drop and offers majestic views of the ocean and surrounding mountains. The Panorama Trail is open year-round. During the winter months, you will need snowshoes to access the trail.
The Spirit Trail
The Spirit Trail is an interpretive trail that takes guests on a cultural journey through the history of the land. The Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nation has a close relationship to that land and they enjoy a rich and proud history that stretches back thousands of years. This trail is a 400-metre long loop and begins at the Skypilot Suspension Bridge. After crossing the bridge you enter the 800 square foot Spirit viewing deck that offers breathtaking views of Howe Sound, Skypilot and Goat Ridge. Enjoy the views from two separate viewpoints as you sip a morning coffee. The Spirit Trail is open year-round.
The Wonderland Lake Loop
The Wonderland Lake Loops is a true nature trail. It starts just down the backcountry access road from the large trail map sign. Turning right off the road into the forest, the trail meanders along granite bluffs, open meadows and vibrant coastal forest. The trail has recently been upgraded to provide greater accessibility and protect the biodiversity of the area. A new boardwalk has been installed as the trail loops around the lake. The trail is approximately 1.6km return and is open year-round.
