During my visit to Vancouver, BC over the Christmas break, I got the chance to visit to the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC and it was quite the “epic” experience. Thanks to Patrick, a crew member from justalilhype!, and Hasan for his recently found interest in photography, the three of us got the chance to roll up the mountain, as photographers and explorers.
This recent tourist destination was built about a year ago. The construction cost for this project is an estimated $22 million project, which cuts through Stawamus Chief Provincial Park. The gondola itself takes about 10 minutes to carry passengers up to Mount Habrich.
At an elevation of 885 metres, the upper terminal area offers two walking trails, three viewing platforms, a suspension bridge, and a lodge with a restaurant and bar, teahouse, and gift shop. We lucked out that day, and had the chance to see and enjoy vistas of the Chief, Howe Sound, Sky Pilot Mountain, and Atwell Peak.
This is my first blog post off my iPhone and all images were taken with an iPhone 6 Plus. I had an iRing (a device stuck to my phone case shaped like a ring) to secure my phone for that particular “Suspension Bridge Selfie”.
It was nice to go up and enjoy the snow and crew bonding time with my photography friends, Patrick and Hasan. Obviously they are much better photographers than me and we will be publishing a post on justalilhype! next week to share the breath taking views from the mountains of beautiful British Columbia.
