A new “elevated tree walk experience” is being pitched by operators of Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish.

The “accessible, architecturally stunning” attraction would “wind 34 metres into the sky, offering soaring 360° views and access for guests of all ages and abilities,” according to a release Wednesday (Feb. 6).

The “elevated trail experience” would start at the Summit Lodge and lead guests on a 2.5-kilometre return trip through the trees and over wetlands along Panorama Ridge.

go for it.  i think the free highway pull-out gives you just as good a look though.

The Goldstream Gazette stated this as being 650 meters HIGH instead of 650 meters LONG. By comparison the Freedom Tower in NYC is only 540 meters high...

It's nearly identical to the one planned for Squamish.


Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.

Have done the elevated forest trail at the Capilano Suspension bridge site and it was admittedly pretty cool; this might be an interesting option on this side of the pond too depending on the route, view scapes offered and of course the cost...

They must get a quantity discount.

String a suspension bridge between them?  (The first thing to be suspended is disbelief.)

Why is the museum so obsessed with history?

 

 

1970s still

Yes, the First Nations portion of this museum is beautiful. But I walked through the new Indigenous Languages section, which is very good, only to then find myself entering the 'colonial history' portion. It feels like a big celebration of what life was like for white people in that time period - and it's been the same exhibit for decades!

Did nothing of significance happen in BC's history in the last 100 years??

Its funny cuz that indigenous language thing is easily the most boring part of the museum, whereas old town and the ship and such are by far the most fun. For proof, just observe which areas little kids are most interested and in

I bet that tacky old Louvre is still displaying the Mona Lisa too.
