Sea to Sky Gondola

Saturday I finally made it up to the Sea to Sky Gondola beside the Chief in Squamish. It doesn't go up the Chief it goes beside and above it but the view from the top is similar. You can hike up and take the gondola down just like the Grouse grind but it is a longer hike. I'm told it's at least three hours one way. There are other hikes you can do from the top as well.

I can see how inviting Sky Pilot is. Unfortunately there have been fatalities on the hike when there is snow on the trail as the last stretch of the trail is very steep. Climbing the steep snow without crampons is ill advised. Yet like seeing mount Baker from Abbotsford, Sky Pilot beacons me.
