The vision of the Sea to Sky Trail is the creation of a multi-use trail connecting the communities of Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish. After years of discussion among community partners plans are taking shape. The project is huge in terms of trail construction. The cost for the trail is expected to average about $20,000 per kilometre over the planned 190 kilometre route with potential funding coming from the private and public sectors.
The Sea to Sky Trail will offer many benefits in the corridor including fostering environmental stewardship through exposure, and ecological educational opportunities, social benefits such as health and safety by offering an alternative transportation route that links communities while avoiding the highway and economic benefits related to tourism.
