The proposed Sea to Sky Gondola project will provide accessible transportation to 2,700 feet above majestic Howe Sound on a routing between Shannon Falls and the Stawamus Chief. It will have a base terminal located on the vacant gravel pit site along the Sea to Sky Highway. The top terminal will be located on the ridge leading to Mount Habrich, which is land currently owned by the Province of BC. It is important to note that this proposed alignment will NOT be to the top of the Stawamus Chief as was previously attempted by a different group of proponents several years ago.
Base terminal plans include: ticketing, parking and maintenance facilities, a small food and beverage outlet, retail space, outdoor equipment and guiding services (i.e. hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing etc.).
The base area plan envisions a walking experience that would link the Sea to Sky Gondola with the Malamute, Stawamus Chief Provincial Park viewing area and trail, and Shannon Falls Provincial Park.
The proposed Sea to Sky Gondola will have eight-passenger enclosed cabins that will enable access for all, including young families and visitors with strollers or wheelchairs.
The top terminal will provide access to mountain top viewing areas, interpretive walks, hikes, cross country mountain bike trails, snowshoeing, a West Coast inspired lodge serving a high quality locally produced menu, and a variety of interactive exhibits highlighting the history, culture and activities in the area.
The Sea to Sky Gondola will provide mountain top access leading to Mount Habrich, Sky Pilot Mountain and Goat Ridge.
