Sea to Sky Gondola: Process Update

The Sea to Sky Gondola is currently awaiting a Park Use Permit to be issued by BC Parks. A number of key regulatory milestones have recently been achieved. The Protected Areas of British Columbia Amendment Act, 2012 has now received final approval, allowing for the reclassification of a small portion of the Stawamus Chief Park. This new Squamish Chief Protected Area will enable the gondola alignment and towers to be built. As well, the OCP amendment and rezoning for the top terminal facilities have now been approved by the Squamish Lillooet Regional District. The Park Use Permit is now the remaining major regulatory step that must be completed before construction can commence.

Gondola Support
We continue to be encouraged by feedback from our partners and community friends.

"We believe the proposed Sea to Sky Gondola will provide  business, employment, naming, recognition, storytelling, arts and culture, opportunities with the visitors who ride the gondola, to extend the cultural journey of our people. We are looking forward to the completion of this project and its positive impacts on our community."

Dale Harry, Member of Chief and Council, Squamish Nation
“Since the recent developments and media attention on the proposed Sea to Sky Gondola, our international wholesalers have now started to ask questions not only about the Gondola, but also about Squamish as a tourist destination.”

Melissa Pace Co-Owner, Director Sales & Marketing, Landsea Tours Ltd.
“The addition of the Gondola to our portfolio of activities and attractions will further entice tour companies from Vancouver, corporate meetings and conferences, as well as bus tours from the international tour operators to Squamish. In fact the travel trade has already expressed interest in featuring Squamish as a destination and including the Sea to Sky Gondola as a key attraction.” -Dana Schoahs, Tourism Squamish
