Sea to Sky Gondola
Monty and the Crystal Team got the opportunity this week to go and check out the new Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish. The weather was amazing and so to was the views. This 10 minute gondola ride takes you 885 meters above sea level where you get breathtaking views of Howe Sound and its surrounding areas. The famous Squamish Chief and Shannon Falls are seen from a different perspective and should not be missed.
Once up, you can partake in a number of activities from the viewing platform to walking the interpretive loop walking trails to the spectacular Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge which accesses numerous hiking trails, rock climbing and backcountry routes. If you are feeling really fit, you can climb up the 885 meters from the valley floor all the way to the top and take the gondola down for only $10 or you could always head back the same way you came.

Favorite Spot in Whistler
We go to Whistler a ton as a family to bike and have stayed at a ton of spots in the village and the Crystal is definitely our favorite. Can't beat the location and by far they have the best staff and service in town. Going above and beyond to make our family and dog feel welcomed. The one bedroom suites with vaulted ceilings feel very private and spacious. Also during noisy times when the village is going crazy late night, the rooms are extremely quiet which is a must for us.
