The Sea to Sky Gondola is a major nature based tourism attraction located in Squamish, BC. It is an accessible gondola sightseeing lift that rises 900 m above majestic Howe Sound on a routing between Shannon Falls and the Stawamus Chief. The project opened in May 2014. In its first two years of operation it hosted over 600,000 visitors from all over the world, and has repositioned Squamish as one of the most important emerging mountain tourism communities in North America.

Groundeffects created the original concept, secured all regulatory approvals, provided development services and arranged financing for this unique and exciting project. Both principals are also the founding partners in the Sea to Sky Gondola Limited Partnership which currently owns and operates the project.
