Sea-to-Sky Highway, BC

The Sea-to-Sky Highway may be the only Canadian highway that also serves as a major tourist attraction. A proud accomplishment of the civil engineering construction sector, the highway links communities from West Vancouver to Whistler, starting at water level and winding 135 kilometres into the mountains.

Known for its scenic view, the Sea-to-Sky Highway is a favourite destination among tourists. The route stretches past several provincial parks and fishing camps, and crosses paths with two historic routes, the Pemberton Trail and the Gold Rush Heritage Trail.
