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.

My girlfriend and I are in our late 20's. We drove up from Seattle for the long holiday weekend. The hotel is literally in the center of it all! Excellent location. We arrived early and checked in around noon. We were told the room wasn't ready yet but we could give them a cell phone number if the room came available early. They called within about 30 min. The service was great! The room was clean and very comfortable. Being in the center of the village we had everything at our finger tips! Great Hotel! I will be back in the winter for sure!
