    The Sea to Sky Highway

    Looking over Howe Sound on the Sea to Sky Highway

    The Sea to Sky Highway (Hwy 99) is considered one of the most scenic drives in British Columbia. While the drive is short, it does connect the city of Vancouver to the town of Squamish. Many people use this highway when driving north to the swanky ski resort of Whistler. This highway is appropriately named, as the mountains tower above on one side of the highway, and the ocean and islands expand into the horizon on the other side of the highway. Whether travelling by train, bus or car, this drive is an extra bonus when travelling to Squamish. Note that the view is spectacular on clear sunny days, and less so when the rain comes in (as it obstructs the view of the mountains).

    The drive from Vancouver to Squamish takes 45 minutes, and the drive from Squamish to Whistler yet another takes 45 minutes. When it rains or snows on the highway, people tend to drive much slower. During freakish snow storms or rare rock slides, the Sea to Sky will close for several hours until the road is cleared. Keep this in mind if you're driving along this road during the winter months!
