Hiking the New Sea to Sky Gondola
I'll admit I wasn't thrilled when I originally learned a new gondola was being built in Squamish. Largely because the privately built gondola required a 'Protected Area Boundary Adjustment' of the Class A Stawamus Chief Provincial Park. 2.36 ha of land were removed from the park for its development - a fate many of BC's Provincial Parks have been facing in recent years.
But I did recently hike up to the summit of the gondola, and I can also admit I was impressed with the new hiking opportunities that now (and will soon) exist in the area. I wrote two new posts on the Sea to Sky Gondola which you can read here:
