Conquering the Sea to Summit Hike in Squamish, BC

Last weekend my girlfriend, her mother, and I decided to hike over 1000 meters up the Sea to Summit Hike in Squamish. The hike took us about 3.5 hours, and it was definitely a challenge. It’s 7.5 km up steep steps, with ropes and chains needed in a few sections. If you’ve done the Chief in Squamish before, I’d say it’s a little bit harder than that (just a bit though).

The good thing about the Sea to Summit Trail is you don’t have to hike down, saving your knees big time. The gondola ride down is $10, and well worth it. There’s also a bar and restaurant at the top of the hike, we had some drinks but passed on the food for our pre-packed snacks. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the morning.

You could take the Gondola up, but where’s the fun in that?
