The world really got to know Whistler as the co-host of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games with Vancouver. But skiers and travelers have long known about one of North America’s finest alpine resorts and what an amazing drive Hwy 99, the Sea to Sky Highway is.
Whistler can be visited as an easy day trip from Vancouver, but if you have more time, it’s wonderful to stay a night or two and enjoy the many activities available, including the Peak 2 Peak Gondola ride between Whistler’s two main mountains.
The drive from Vancouver is spectacular and deserves its nickname – the Sea to Sky Highway. It follows the peaceful waters of Howe Sound as it hugs the mountains. The second half of the journey leaves the waterside and follows the mountain valleys to Whistler. Amazing!
This tour has different commentary in both directions. You can also enjoy the commentary on this drive as a portion of the popular alternative route between Vancouver and the Rockies, passing through Cache Creek.
