Description: Join us on this epic Sea to Sky Trail cycling adventure from Squamish to Whistler, B.C.! This is an out and back destination weekend. Leaving the Squamish Adventure Centre at 9:00am on Saturday morning, we’ll ride the scenic and challenging Sea to Sky Trail to Whistler Village, with a scheduled return by 3:00pm on Sunday. You’ll have the possibility to camp or stay in a hotel in Whistler, or we have a one-way option available, where riders can ride to Whistler and grab a shuttle back to Squamish or Vancouver. There are multiple shuttles daily.
The trail has some solid climbs, some hike-a-bike, but it can be generally classified as an intermediate level ride. The route is 90% trail (sweet!), but route also includes some highway, sand, and pavement sections. The ride starts at sea level and climbs to a maximum elevation of 730m. It is possible to ride only one way and grab a shuttle back to Squamish or Vancouver.
