Sea to Sky

Rugged and almost overwhelmingly beautiful, the region known as the Sea-to-Sky Corridor will satiate anyone’s thirst for adventure. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, sailing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, golf – all these activities and more are abundantly accessible in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor.

The Corridor comprises a fast-growing area that stretches north of Vancouver from Furry Creek to D’Arcy. Major centres include Squamish, with close to 15,000 residents, the resort destination of Whistler, with approximately 10,000 full-time residents, and Pemberton, home to approximately 8,000. Several First Nations communities are part of the Sea to Sky mosaic. The Corridor is a recreational Mecca, and visitors can swell the population of Whistler to 100,000 in the busy season.
