Summer programming at the Sea to Sky Gondola encourages visitors to return for more.
“Summer is far from being over, with a number of festivals happening in the region, including our September HikeFest that we are gearing up for. We like to collaborate with our destination partners and event organizers to enhance visitors’ experience when they visit the region”, says Kirby Brown, General Manager at the Sea to Sky Gondola. "Squamish Valley Music Festival goers last weekend enjoyed the additional activities we offered such as the Pancake Breakfasts and live music performances we hosted on the Summit Lodge patio. We like to believe that festival goers and sporting events participants appreciate the value added we like to offer them", added Brown.
The Second Annual HikeFest will take place on Sunday, September 13, and will offer animation and guided hikes as well as extended kids activities including the Alpine Alley tour and the MEC games zone. It will be the perfect occasion to come explore the great outdoors and gain new skills from the best Alpine guides in the region.
In the meantime, daily guided hikes continue to operate from the Gondola Summit at 11:00 and 2:00. The North Face Family Tour is a new addition to the daily offerings, leaving at 1pm on the new Alpine Alley trail. The Squamish Via Ferrata, operated by Mountain Skills Academy & Adventures adds some thrill to the visit. The 90-minute guided adventure promises to create lasting memories.
