The Sea to Sky Gondola is going to get you as close to the clouds as possible.

The operators of the Sea to Sky Gondola want to make it easier for people to connect with the outdoors. So, they are proposing to build a tree walk that will take guests 34 metres into the sky.

This announcement comes on the heels of another announcement for a new walkway that will wrap around a canyon in Squamish.

Sea To Sky Elevated Tree Walk

According to their website, “the Tree Walk will gently wind around a structure that draws visitors from the base, through the treetops, and up high into the clouds.”

The new structure will be the first of its kind in North America. It will offer 360 degree views and easy access for people of every age and ability.

That includes accessibility for strollers and wheelchairs.

To add to the adventure, an elevated trail experience will also take guests on a 2.5 km return trip. There, guests can walk among trees and over wetlands along Panorama Ridge.

The elevated trail, is said to “preserve, connect and enhance” guests ability to enter natural areas. At the same time, environmentally delicate areas will be protected.

The goal of this new Tree Walk is to help guests integrate into nature from wherever they stand.

The website goes on to say, a unique,“spiral architecture will not only offer panoramic open-air views, but will also provide cover over the walkway for a year-round, weather-independent, sightseeing experience that will enthrall adventurers of every ability.”

Construction for the Tree Walk will begin in the fall of 2019 and the proposed opening is for Spring 2020.
