spirit of christmas

Tis’ the season for Winter activities in the falling snow, mulled wine, fondue and curling up by the fire.

The ‘Spirit of Christmas’ is truly a Winter Wonderland awaiting you in Squamish that lets you do all of those things and more.

Just an hour drive away from Vancouver, the Sea to Sky Gondola has everything you need to get in the Christmas spirit.

Make your way up the gondola and be transported into a magical paradise of snow, festive trails and all things Christmas.

Sea to Sky Gondola ‘Spirit of Christmas’ Activities


Christmas Spirit Trail

Discover all the magic of the season during this short but sweet loop around the forest. The whimsical trails are decked out in Christmas decorations; with twinkly lights strung along the trees, ribbons wrapped around their stumps and ornaments hanging from up above.


Don’t let the snow stop you from exploring the hiking trails around the area. Rent some snowshoes and go for a trek around the popular Panorama Trail or one of their many other routes offering scenic views all around.

Snow Tubing

For those young at heart—nothing will make you feel like a kid again more than gliding down the snow-covered slopes.

Headlamp Hike

Go on a guided headlamp hike (or snowshoe) at sunset to take in the pristine wilderness after it gets dark.

Fondue & Mulled Wine

Wrap up a day filled with Winter activities by indulging in cheese fondue by the fire at the Summit Lodge. The backdrop can’t be beat—with unsurpassed views from every angle. Sip on mulled wine or any other hot beverage to warm you up.

Other family-friendly activities include: story-time at the gondola, a Christmas choir, and pancakes with Santa.
